Neutering Your Cat Did you know? - Cats are prolific breeders - one un-neutered female cat can produce as many as 18 kittens each year meaning she can produce 20,000 descendants in only 5 years! (CPL Website) - Male cats can impregnate a female from only 4 months of age and their reproductive lifespan can be over 14 years - that's a lot of unwanted kittens! BOYS: As you can see, male cats can become sexually active from a very young age meaning problems can start early. Entire males are more likely to: - Scent mark (urine spray) in the house due to territorial or hormonal behaviour and Tom-cat urine is a difficult smell to get rid of! - Stray away from home in search of females. This puts them at much higher risk of getting lost, stolen or injured i.e. in a road traffic accident. - Fight with other cats in the neighbourhood. This makes them more prone to sustaining injuries (cat bite abscesses are common) or contracting diseases such sa the feline AIDs virus. - Get un-neutered females pregnant. Males will seek out females in heat over huge distances. Keeping your cat as an indoor cat doesn't stop them trying (and usually succeeding) in escaping. GIRLS: Female cats can become pregnant at a very young age too. Cats as young as 4 and 5 months of age can carry litters to term. This means any unneutered girl and boy kittens purchased/living together can breed from only 4 months old (yes, even those related to eachother!). Entire female cats are more likely to: - Become pregnant. Unlike many species, when the female cat is in heat she will actively search for a male to mate with. This means you don't have to have entire males in the area. If she escapes or routinely goes outside before she is spayed, a female will roam vast distances to find a Tom. - Have unwanted litters/complications. If your cat becomes pregnant by accident, you may not know who the father of the kittens is. Particularly if she is young, this can result in complications during pregnancy e.g. oversized kittens, difficulty in labour or the need for a caesarean section. If she cannot give birth naturally, you will need to take her straight to the vet for medical treatment which can run into many £100's or even £1000's for a C-section! - Scent mark in the house - Vocalise/cry/scream particularly at night when in heat which will happen every 21 days. - Stray away from home. - Fight with other cats (higher risk of contracting diseases and injuries) We recommend neutering your cats at 5 months of age but sometimes it is necessary to neuter younger. Castration/spaying can eliminate many of the above problems and allow your cat a longer, happier life. Of course, it is never too late to neuter your cat so whatever the sex, whatever the age, if you want to book your feline friend in for neutering or just to find out more, call us on 01642 431940
A great advert for the RSPCA and the work they do for all animals. We are proud to work with these super people!

Just like to say thank you for looking after tetley unfortunately he has passed you are a great team
Hello, Do you do titer testing for dogs? :) x
A warm welcome to our little orphaned duckling. Currently being fostered by our lovely receptionist Louise who is doing a great job of playing mummy duck!
Worth a mental note this summer! Remember it may not be too hot for us but for many dogs, including these breeds, any heat can be dangerous.
Spot was a Support Adoption Rabbit who was rehomed a few weeks ago. His new owners found he was a bit aggressive so boked him in for neutering. Spot's photos show him becoming sleepy before his op and we also have a few during his procedures. He was also given a dental while anaesthetised as his back teeth were overgrown - you can really see the spiky spurs that had formed on his back teeth in the pictures. His aggression was most likely due to him being older and un-neutered but dental pain will have had an impact too. Spot was very sleepy afterwards but enjoyed being hand-fed by our wonderful nurses. Spot is now a much happier, friendly bunny at home for his Mum and Dad!
Max came to see us when he was very poorly indeed. He had developed a form of cystitis where urine crystals form which meant he wasn't able to pass any urine at all. This is an extremely distressing illness and poor Max was in a lot of pain. As a result, he needed intensive hospital care from our team and had to be treated here for several days. Happily we were able to 'unblock' him and Max has made excellent progress and is recovering well at home. With ongoing health checks, a special prescription diet and supplements, Max should make a full recovery and be able to live a normal healthy life - we are delighted!
Boo's owner had noticed he had started to pick at his food and was unusually fussy. He was admitted for a dental by Andy, one of our vets, where we found spurs forming on his back teeth. This is a very common problem in rabbits and guinea pigs which can become extremely painful and debilitating. This is why we recommend regular dental chekcs with our vets every 6 months.
Lola was our first ever patient on our opening day on the 24th March! This little beauty has been back to see us several times since then for her regular baby-rabbit health checks, preventative parasite treatment, vaccinations and to book in for neutering.
Luna came in to see us for her first ever kitten health check - what a cutie! Luna is lovely and healthy but too young to start her primary vaccinations just yet. That didn't stop her enjoying her visit to the vet....she even went for a nap!
The Importance of Neutering Your Dog BOYS: Did you know a male dog can smell a female in heat up to 5 miles away?! This can be very distressing for them and often results in: - Him going off his food, sometimes for days at a time. - Trying to escape or run away - Increase in aggression, particularly to other dogs - Highly strung or excessively excitable behaviour on walks, for example. By neutering your male dog you prevent or reduce: - Testicular cancers - Prostate tumours - Dog aggression - Loss of weight/inappetance associated with females on heat - Straying behaviour GIRLS: Did you know there is no clinical benefit to a female dog having a litter of puppies? Having puppies is not best for your dog. In fact, getting your bitch spayed BEFORE her first season can prevent the following: - Ovarian/cervical/uterine cancers, cysts and growths - Pyometra - A potentially fatal womb infection that can affect un-neutered female dogs of any age. - Mammary tumours - Unwanted pregnancies - False pregnancies. With each season a female has, the risks of her developing these problems increases so get her done nice and young! We advise you to get your dog neutered from 6 months of age; females before their first season so no need to wait! Give us a call on 01642 431940 to book.
Did you know that neutered animals live longer? We feel strongly that neutering your pet is the best thing you can do for them to prevent health problems in the future. Neutering operations are normally simple procedures when the animal is young and their recovery is faster at this age too. Each week we will be posting information on neutering pets so keep an eye out below for yours!
Now that we are open we'd like to share our opening offers, which include £15 vaccinations and £10 microchips. Please visit our website www.vets4pets.com/middlesbrough-cp for further details.
What an incredible Easter Weekend we have had! Crocodile Joe's Wild World was a huge success showing all our lovely guests how truly incredible and interesting invertibrates, lizards and snakes are. These beautiful creatures wowed our audience and we hope everyone left with a lasting impression of how great they are, not scary! Our lovely face painter did a wonderful job too making the children look fabulous. It was funny to see how eveyone went from wanting puppies and butterflies to snakes in the end! Finally we just want to say a massive thank you to Joe and Melissa for travelling all the way from Manchester to make our open weekend so special. We couldn't have asked for anything better. The whole team had a wonderful day and we hope you did too - come back and visit us again soon!

how much is it to micro chip on benefit please
Hiya my pooch skye has always gone to vets 4 pets at belle Vue, as I live in redcar could I just bring her to skippers lane, is it all on one system or does she have to transfer as this would be a lot easier for me.
I've registered online, should I receive a confirmation email? I want to have my dog microchiped. Thankyou
