Desexing

Desexing dogs and cats is a very common surgical procedure. Also known as neutering, this procedure prevents your pet from being able to reproduce and is a part of responsible pet ownership.

In male pets it is commonly referred to as “castration”, and in female pets, it is referred to as “spaying”. The most common age to desex your pet is between 4 and 6 months but animals are never too old to be desexed.

The Benefits of Pet Desexing

There are many benefits to desexing your pet before 6 months. They include:

  • Preventing unwanted litters, which can be very costly, and may add to the already overwhelming number of stray animals that are put down each year
  • Prevention of testicular cancer and prostate disease in males – it can also help to prevent pyometra (infection of the uterus) and mammary tumours (breast cancer) in females
  • Stopping the “heat” cycle in females
  • Decreasing aggression towards humans and other animals, especially in males
  • Being less prone to wander, especially in males
  • Living a longer and healthier life
  • Reduction of council registration fees
