Snip & Chip Campaign
Your animal will be much happier and settled when neutered, so if you do not wish to breed from them, neutering your pet and ensuring its safe return, should they become lost, are important parts of responsible pet ownership.To that end we are currently running a subsidised neutering and microchipping campaign for local people on benefits, low incomes or the elderly. If you need assistance please contact us on 07872 902710 or email
The Vets assisting in the scheme are in Barnet, and you will need to take your pet to their surgery for the operation and microchipping.
The cost to you after subsidy is;
Dogs - £25.00, Cats - £15.00, Rabbits - £15.00 (this includes the neutering and microchipping). You will also need to provide proof of benefits or income.
Don't forget the Plastic Buster Collar your pet will need to stop them chewing at the stiches, and they will need some post operative pain killers. But these only add around £10-£20, and the vet will advise you.
