When you get your dog desexed you’re proving that you’re a responsible pet owner, a good neighbour and a caring citizen. While the current regulations in Western Australia haven’t made dog desexing mandatory, in practice it keeps your dog healthier and happier, it prevents unwanted puppies from being homeless and it can sometimes assist with common behavioural problems.
What does dog desexing mean?
Also sometimes referred to spaying, neutering, sterilisation or castration, dog desexing is a routine procedure that stops unwanted dog pregnancies. For a male dog, desexing is the removal of the testicles. Desexing a female dog involves the removal of the ovaries and uterus, please talk to us if you have any concerns, we are also able to offer ovariectomies which is just the removal of the ovaries and not the uterus, which is less invasive and can have a faster recovery time. Once a male dog has been desexed it won’t be able to impregnate a female, while for females it prevents them from going into heat and falling pregnant.
