Desexing

The most common age to desex your pet is between 5 and 6 months, however they are never too old to be desexed.

There are many benefits to desexing your pet at 6 months of age. 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, and it can help 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 escape and wander, especially in males

  • Living a longer and healthier life

  • Reduction of council registration fees
