Pet Desexing

Hawthorn East Vet

What is Desexing?

Desexing or neutering involves removing part of a pet’s reproductive system so that they can’t have babies. Usually, we perform this procedure are dogs and cats but other animals like rabbits and ferrets can also be desexed. In female animals, it is called a “spey” and in males, it is referred to as “castration”.

We only use state of the art anaesthetics and our vets are very experienced in desexing surgery – your pet will be in the safest of hands.

Our friendly staff can give you more information about the appropriate time to desex your pet and discuss how to prepare your pet for the surgery.

 

Why Desex My Pet?

Desexing ultimately prevents unwanted pregnancies in female cats and dogs. It helps stop unwanted attention from males and reduces the wandering instinct.

There are also health and behaviour benefits associated with desexing. Desexing actually reduces the risk of cancers in both males and females, as well as other life-threatening conditions such as pyometra. Desexing can also reduce aggresive and unpleasant behaviours.

With a large number of strays and abandoned animals euthanised every year, we recommend you desex your pet.
