The decision about whether to have your pet neutered needs to be considered. We advise neutering as it is beneficial for the health of your pet (reducing the chance of cancer and infections of the uro-genital tract) and preventing unwanted litters from being born. Dogs are neutered generally at 6 months and cats and rabbits slightly younger.
Dental work in cats, dogs and rabbits is common as they become older. The teeth and gums can harbor high numbers of bacteria leading to illness if not treated when necessary and dental disease can be very painful. The patient has a general anaesthetic and the veterinary surgeon can carry out any extraction, descaling and polishing work that may be required.
