Fatherhood – consider our male companion animals

Father’s Day is a special time to honour fatherhood

On this special day, we celebrate and honour fatherhood by showing just how much with love them and how we appreciate everything they do for us.

It’s also a time to think about our male animal friends and consider the importance neutering.

Our male animal companions also need us to help them keep happy and healthy, by considering neutering we can protect them and help to reduce unwanted litters who could end up abandoned and neglected.

It is important to speak to a vet professional when considering neutering your companion animal, so they can provide you with some expert advice. Having this procedure can help prevent illnesses and aggressive behaviors.

Animal guardians have a responsibility to meet their animal’s needs under the Animal Welfare Act 2006.*

Neutering means the removal of the reproductive organ, the testicles, from a male animal. This is done through the surgical removal of the testes, under a general anesthetic.

Neutering makes males far less likely to roam or fight, prevents testicular cancer, and reduces the risk of prostate cancer.

Many clinics, vets, and some animal charities will offer low-costs spay and neuter options, speak to your local veterinary expert for more information and advice.
