Desexing your pet is simple this July

July 14, 2015

Save your pet from having an accidental litter or a lifetime of breeding by desexing them during National Desexing Month.

Ensuring your pet is desexed goes hand-in-hand with responsible pet ownership, however, we continue to see a large number of entire lost and abandoned dogs and cats come through our doors each and every day.

Desexing your pet doesn’t just help manage the number of unwanted cats and dogs being born; it also has considerable health benefits, such as reducing the development of certain cancers linked to your pet’s reproductive organs, giving your pet the opportunity to live a long and healthy life.

In addition to the health benefits, desexing can also help manage behaviours often related to mating, including roaming, aggression and mounting.
