Eclipse Park Vet - Desexing

Desexing or neutering involves removing part of a pet’s reproductive system so that they can’t reproduce. Usually, we only perform this procedure on dogs and cats. In female animals it is called a “spey” and in males it is referred to as “castration”.

Why desex my pet at Eclipse Park Vets?

Desexing ultimately prevents unwanted pregnancies in female cats and dogs. It helps stop unwanted attention from males and also reduces the wandering instinct in male pets.

There are also health benefits associated with desexing. Desexing actually reduces the risk of cancers in both males and females, as well as other life threatening conditions such as pyometra.

A large number of strays and abandoned animals are euthanised every year, we highly recommend that your pet is desexed. Maximum benefits are achieved if desexing is done at a young age.

At Eclipse Park Vets, we understand that although desexing is considered a routine surgery, your pet will only go through it once! We only use state of the art anaesthetics, provide your pet with intravenous fluids during surgery, pain relief is given at the time of surgery and more is sent home for at home recovery. All patients go home with an Elizabethan collar to help the healing process go as smoothly as possible.

Our friendly staff can give you more information about the appropriate time to desex your pet and discuss how to prepare your pet for the surgery – contact us today.
