Dog & Cat Desexing

Moonee Beach Vet Surgery highly recommends dog & cat desexing (also known as spaying, sterilisation, neutering, or castrating). Desexing has two major benefits. Firstly, the number of unwanted puppies and kittens in animal shelters can be significantly reduced. Secondly, the operation has various health benefits for your pet.

Spaying Females

Spaying, or desexing female animals, can help minimise disease of the reproductive organs and the mammary glands. In addition, spaying prevents unwanted pregnancies. It also takes away the messy issue when females come “on heat”.

Neutering Males

There are many benefits from neutering or desexing males, as they become less likely to roam, fight with other males, or urine-mark their territory, plus they are less likely to develop prostatic disease later. Testicular disease including cancer is also prevented.
