Desexing or neutering your pet is a surgical procedure that prevents them from being able to reproduce. In male pets it is commonly referred to as “castration”, and in female pets as “speying”. This is the most frequent surgery performed by our vets, and generally your pet is home by the evening of surgery.
AT MRVH we prefer to desex your pet is around 6 months of age, however it is never too late to desex your pet. (Additional precautions will be required in desexing a senior pet)
Our Elective Surgical team performs desexings Monday through Friday.
There are many benefits to desexing around 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, and it can help prevent pyometra (infection of the uterus) and mammary tumours (breast cancer) in females
Prevention of them going into “heat” (in females)
Decreasing aggression towards humans and other animals, especially in males
Being less prone to wander, especially in males
Reduction of council registration fees
