What is desexing?
Desexing is essentially the removal of a pet’s reproductive system. In females it’s referred to as a “spey” and in males a “castration”.
What are the benefits?
The main benefit of desexing is that it removes the possibility of any unwanted pregnancy. However, there are numerous health benefits to having your pet desexed including reducing the risk of certain cancers and other life -threatening conditions such as pyometra. From a behavioural point of view desexing can reduce aggressive or unpleasant behaviour and lowers the wandering instinct.
It breaks our heart to see the large number of stray cat and dogs that are left homeless or euthanised every year, that’s why we recommend desexing.
