Please state which vet you would like to use from the following: Castle, Tilehurst Vets (School Road), Oakley, Burghfield or Companion Care (Pets at Home); you do not have to be registered at any of these vets to use the neutering voucher. If you would like to use a different vet, please contact us for more information.  Please note that your cat must be at least 4 months old. If you have a kitten younger than this, please contact us when it reaches 4 months of age.
