Get Fixed - Spay & Neuter Awareness

February is Spay & Neuter Awareness Month in the UK – and we think it’s an important campaign to get behind! While neutering isn’t always suitable for every pet, it is recommended by many animal welfare organisations. Not only can spaying and/or neutering provide physical health benefits for your pet, but it prevents conception of unwanted litters and in turn, animal homelessness.
