Desexing (also known as spaying or sterilisation) is an important process for your pet. Not only will it help you stop unwanted pregnancies, but it also improves your pets’ happiness and health in many ways.
Desexing is a routine and relatively simple surgery that can help reduce behavioural issues in your pet. It lessens the likelihood of contracting diseases such as uterine cancer in female animals or prostate problems in male animals.
For female animals, the process is known as an ovariohysterectomy. This involves the removal of the ovaries and uterus. For male animals, the process is known as orchidectomy (or castration). This involves the removal of the testes.
Every year, millions of unwanted dogs and cats are put down at animal shelters. If you are not intending on using your pet for breeding, then we recommend having it desexed,
