Desexing is one of the most important health measures you can do for your pet. Desexing offers both long-term and short-term benefits for him or her.
In females it eliminates unwanted litters and uterine disease, as well as significant reduction in mammary tumours (breast cancer).
Desexing for females is a day surgery. She is admitted in the morning and will be discharged late afternoon. She undergoes a full ovi hysterectomy. For a human female this is a procedure that will require hospitalisation for 5 days or more.
It is important to thoroughly adhere to the after care information given to you by the Veterinary Nurse at time of discharge to avoid complications.
In males there are benefits associated with desexing that include reduced tendency to wander, urine/territory marking, testicular tumours and significant reduction in the risk of prostate disease and perineal herniation later in life.
Desexing males is also a day procedure.
