Desexing involves removing part of a pet’s reproductive system so that they can’t reproduce. In female animals this is called a “spey” and in males a “castration”.
Why desex my pet at Grange Veterinary Clinic?
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 (infection of the uterus).
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 Grange Veterinary Clinic we only use state of the art anaesthetic equipment and monitoring devices. With a highly experienced Vet performing the procedure and a fully qualified veterinary nurse monitoring your pets vital signs, your pet will be in the safest of hands.
Our friendly staff can give you more information about the appropriate time to desex your pet and discuss how to prepare them for the surgery – call Grange Veterinary Clinic today.
