Rehoming and rescue charities report that a high number of the animals they receive are unwanted and unexpected offspring of much loved pets. While it’s easy to look after one dog, a cat or a pair of rabbits, the multiplying effect of one birth suddenly makes ownership much more expensive, time consuming and demanding of space. Unexpected births can be tough on the pet too, as many owners simply don’t know about the pregnancy until too late. This means mum hasn’t received supplementary nutrition that can help ensure healthy babies that can be fed properly. This in turn means owners may be faced with bottle feeding sickly youngsters – a challenge too far for many. The easiest way to avoid all this is to get your pet neutered. From small pets to dogs and cats, it is a simple operation from which animals recover quickly. It is the responsible approach to pet ownership, and highly recommended by all the animal charities.
