Dogs and cats are great pets that give us so much love, companionship and affection. Tragically however, each year, RSPCA shelters take in around 160,000 animals nationally, many of which are the result of unplanned breeding. Desexing is an effective strategy to prevent these unwanted pregnancies and abandoned pets.
In addition to preventing accidental litters, there are many health and behavioural benefits to desexing.
- Desexed animals are generally less likely to get diseases and certain illnesses such as mammary cancer and uterine infections in females and prostate problems in males.
- Desexing commonly reduces behaviour problems such as roaming, aggression and urine marking in males.
- In females it prevents mating behaviour and false pregnancy. Reducing the desire to roam also reduces the risk of being in a traumatic accident such as being hit by a car.
As a responsible pet owner it’s crucial to have your pet desexed. So why not enquire with us now tp save 20% off our normal desexing fees and ensure your pet gets the best healthcare treatment available.
