Dogs Trust Subsidised Neutering for Dogs
The Dogs Trust (a well respected animal charity, formerly NCDL) operate a subsidised neutering scheme. We are delighted to support this charitable scheme, and will carry out the operations for eligible owners. Owners contribute an amount towards the cost of the operation (£35 for a spay or castration as of September 2017), with the charity and the Practice taking care of the remainder.
Neutering has many benefits. Please see our neutering page for further information on these.

Farm Dog Neutering Scheme
The Dogs Trust also provide neutering at a reduced rate of £35 for farm dogs; this does not require you to be in receipt of means tested benefits. You must, however, have an agricultural holding number and bring it with you on the day of the operation.
We are proud to be supporting this scheme, to promote the welfare of farm dogs.
