Expert Desexing For Cats & Dogs at Tullamarine Animal Hospital

Tullamarine Animal Hospital - Desexing Your Pet

Desexing or neutering involves removing part of a pet’s reproductive system so that they cannot breed. Whilst we most commonly perform this procedure on dogs and cats, other animals such as rabbits and ferrets can also be desexed. In female animals it is called a “spey” and in males it is referred to as “castration”.

Why desex my pet at Tullamarine Animal Hospital?

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 benefits associated with desexing. The procedure actually reduces the risk of cancers in both males and females, as well as other life threatening conditions such as pyometra.

With the large number of strays and abandoned animals euthanised every year we recommend you desex your pet. Maximum benefits are achieved if your pet is desexed at a young age.

At the Tullamarine Animal Hospital we only use state of the art anaesthetics and our veterinarians 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 – get in touch with our team today to find out more.
