Our veterinary services

We have a small fund to assist pet owners in our community with caring for their animals

Part of our mission is to improve the welfare of pets in our community with education, services and support. We want every animal to have a happy life, and to give everyone the skills to be a responsible pet owner. As part of this, we have a small fund to assist pet owners in our community with caring for their animals.

Low-cost neutering

If you are on a lower income and live in our catchment area, then we may be able to provide neutering for your cat or dog at a cost price.

To be eligible

  • You must be in receipt of Universal Credit or other means-tested benefits.
  • You must also live in our catchment area in Bath and North East Somerset or Wiltshire. To confirm you are within our catchment area, you can search your postcode on www.rspca.org.uk/whatwedo/yourlocal or call us on 01225 787321 (during office hours).

Your pet will be operated on in the Vet Suite at Bath Cats and Dogs Home, by a vet and nursing team from Bath Vets. The experienced team handle several neuters every day for the Home. There is a separate recovery room which is manned by our Animal Care team, so they will receive the best care.

Neutering charges are

Dog - small or medium sized males (under 25kg) £100
Cat - female £65
Cat - male £35

Please note, we cannot spay/neuter female dogs or large male dogs (over 25kg) as part of this scheme, at this time.

This is what it will cost you – this covers the basics such as general anaesthesia and pain medication as they recover. Neither Bath Vets nor the Home will profit from the operation. As a guide, at a standard vet a male dog neuter would cost about £230.
