Neutering

All pets new to Springfield must have a pre-op general health check consultation with a Vet prior to booking a neutering appointment to ensure that the pet is fit, well and suitable for the surgery.

Dogs

  • Dogs must be starved from midnight the night before surgery and have access to water.
  • Dogs must be taken for a short walk to have a pee and poo before coming in.
  • We encourage clients to bring in a toy or blanket to comfort the pet in recovery.
  • We encourage clients to use a Buster collar to prevent the wound being licked by the pet.
  • It is a day surgery case.

Male

Males can be castrated from 6 months old. However, we are recommending clients book to see a nurse or vet to discuss the best time as it is not suitable for all dogs to be castrated at this age. (temperament, breed, size etc.)

Female

Females are ideally spayed 3 months after their first season.  It can be done before the first season.  Check with a Vet if unsure.

Cats

  • We encourage clients to use a Buster collar to prevent the wound being licked by the pet

Male

  • Male cats can be neutered from 12 weeks but we advise from 4 months of age.

Female

  • Female cats can be neutered from 12 weeks but advise from 4 months of age. 
  • If pregnant, females can be spayed, but the Vet must discuss it with the owner first. 
  • Nursing cats should receive a pre -op check before spaying, ideally wait until all the kittens are weaned and all the milk has gone (generally around 2 weeks after kittens have stopped feeding)

Rabbits

  • Rabbits MUST NOT be starved - feed as normal.
  • Rabbits should receive a pre-op check before neutering, at this check an age estimation can be given.
  • Males and females can be neutered from 4-6 months old (the size of the rabbit makes this a bigger gap – generally larger rabbits can be neutered sooner than smaller ones).
