Pet desexing is a safe and routinely performed surgical procedure that prevents pets from reproducing.
Why We Recommend Pet Desexing?
We firmly belief that desexing of pets is an important feature of responsible pet ownership. Desexing pets at a young age has both ethical and medical benefits. Early desexing helps prevent unwanted litters (many of which end up being euthanased). Neutering also has important health benefits. Desexing male dogs greatly reduces the incidence of prostatic and testicular disease, as well as reducing aggression and roaming. Desexing females reduces the possibility of life-threatening uterus infections, as well as greatly minimising the risk of mammary (breast) cancer.
When Should I Desex My Dog or Cat?
Animals can be surgically desexed anytime form 12 weeks onwards, although we prefer to wait until they are 6 months old.
How is the Desexing Carried Out?
We schedule desexings for any weekday. Your pet is admitted for the day, and the fee includes a pre-anaesthetic assessment, pre-medication (including pain-relief and sedation), general anaesthetic, surgery, intravenous fluids, post-surgical antibiotics and pain relief, and removal of sutures. In most cases your pet is discharged later that afternoon.
