There are many reasons why de-sexing your pet is a responsible choice for pet owners. 

  • Population control
  • Positive behavioural changes
  • Medical benefits

Population Control 

Each year animal care organisations euthanise thousands of unwanted pets.

De-sexing your pet will avoid the problems of unwanted puppies and kittens.  

Positive Behavioural Changes   

In males: Are less likely to roam.  90% stop entirely.Are less likely to urinate in undesirable places.  50% stop.Castration reduces the sexual drive and ability in most dogs.  60% stop mounting people. Display less dominant behaviour. Are less aggressive towards other male dogs. 60% stop fighting.Are less aggressive towards people, reducing the risk of attacks. 

In females: Prevents oestrous behaviour (on heat). Male dogs will not be attracted and will not be a nuisance. 

Medical Benefits   

De-sexing your pet has also shown longer term medical benefits. 

In males: Are unlikely to develop common prostate diseases which can be fatal. Approximately 60% of dogs that are not desexed develop prostatic disease. 

In females:Will not develop serious uterine infections which are common in older female dogs that are not desexed. 

Desexing before the first season greatly reduces the risk of female dogs developing breast cancer which is fatal in 50% of cases. 

Males and Females Greatly reduces the incidence of fighting in cats and associated infections and injuries such as feline AIDS, which is spread by biting.Desexed dogs and cats are less likely to roam and therefore, are less likely to become road victims.
