UPDATE JANUARY 2021

Update following the announcement of a period of national lockdown from 5th January 2021:  Veterinary science is included within the list of courses for which in-person practical teaching is still permitted.  The Bristol Vet School neuter clinic has been set up to provide essential surgical training for final year students and, as such, and following discussion with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS), will remain open during the lockdown. We are putting plans in place to minimise any associated travel by members of the public, and will be working within COVID-secure guidelines. Please get in touch if you have any queries.


We are excited to announce that the Bristol Vet School Neuter Clinic will open on 12 January 2021. The Clinic, which will be open for 6 months, has been set up to provide our students (under supervision) with additional surgical experience.

Neutering is an important part of responsible pet ownership. For most cats and dogs it is recommended that neutering is undertaken at the earliest opportunity, following veterinary advice and guidance.

Using modern anaesthetic techniques, surgical neutering is a safe and effective way to prevent unwanted breeding of dogs and cats and may reduce roaming and unwanted sexual behaviours, fighting, mounting, and marking territory.

We hope that this clinic will help pet owners and those running charities and rescue centres, many of whom find themselves in financial difficulties because of the pandemic. The Neuter Clinic is being run by Bristol Veterinary School, on the Langford Campus, independently of Langford Vets.

We will be offering cat castrates, cat spays and dog castrates, at no cost. Please note we are unable to accept female dog (bitch) spays.

Your pet will be neutered by an experienced vet and nursing team assisted by students under supervision.

There are safe and modern facilities to ensure your pet receives an excellent standard of care.

There is no cost to you for the neutering or the post-operative care.

Your pet should be in good health and have a good temperament to be eligible for neutering. If you are not sure if your pet qualifies please fill in the online booking form to the best of your ability and we will contact you to discuss whether your pet is suitable for neutering.

If you would like your pet to be neutered at Bristol Vet School at our free of charge neutering clinic, then please fill in the online booking form.

If you aren’t able to fill in the form online you can also contact us to complete the booking process.
