Desexing

Desexing is strongly recommended for all cats and dogs. It is a council requirement for all but registered breeding pets.

Desexing ensures that your pet has less reproductive related health problems as he or she ages.

Dogs that are desexed after their first heat are five times more likely to develop mammary cancer as they get older compared to those that are desexed before their first heat.

Female dogs will generally come on heat twice yearly from the age of six months. If left entire they may develop mammary cancer and are prone to pyometra-a severe infection of the uterus.

Male dogs if left entire are at risk of prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

Desexing also ensures your pet is calmer and will not have the urge to go on the hunt for a breeding partner.

Desexing is performed as a day surgery procedure any day from Monday to Friday. Many owners like to book their pets for a Friday so that they can be home with them over the weekend.

The procedure itself is generally straightforward and recovery is usually uneventful. Pain relief is given on the day of the surgery and pets are sent home with continued pain relief. This is included in the fee.

Price of desexing-this is a heavily discounted procedure as we like to encourage desexing. It also includes perioperative pain relief.

  • Female dog spey-from $385.00
  • Female cat spey-from $275.00
  • Male dog castration-from $352.00
  • Male cat castration-from $231.00

If your pet is older than 6 months, overweight or on heat then there will be an increased cost.
