Desexing or neutering involves removing part of a pet’s reproductive system so that they can’t have babies.  In female animals it is called a “spey” and in males it is referred to as “castration”.

Why desex my pet at Victoria Point Vet 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. Desexing 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 desexing is done at a young age.

At Victoria Point Vet Hospital we only use state of the art anaesthetics and our vets are very experienced in desexing surgeries - your pet will be in the safest of hands.  All of our dog desexings and cat speys receive intravenous fluids, intradermal (dissolvable) sutures, post-operative pain relief for a few days at home, and a stylish elizabethan collar to help keep their wound safe.  

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 - call Victoria Point Vet today.
