The Importance & Benefits of Desexing
Neutering your cat or dog is an effective way to prevent unwanted pregnancies and keep your pet healthy. Many cities in Australia have also introduced laws mandating that all cats must be microchipped and desexed. If you are looking to do both of these things and more, we offer wellness packages for cats, dogs, kittens and puppies – experience premium care for your pet and great savings on vet bills. There are many benefits of desexing for males and females:
- In females, desexing prevents: unwanted pregnancies, unwanted advances from roaming males, hormone-related behavioural changes, false pregnancies and pyometra (a life threatening infection of the uterus). It also greatly reduces the likelihood of mammary cancer in dogs.
- In males, the benefits include: reducing the risk of prostate-related problems, eliminating the risk of testicular problems such as cancer, reducing extreme hormone-related behaviours such as roaming, aggression and territorial urine marking.
