Why desex pets?

(Back to top)
  • Desexed pets live longer healthier lives, and are less prone to wander, fight, be anti-social and it reduces the risk of certain cancers.
  • Desexing your pet helps to reduce pet overpopulation and reduces the amount of pets that are euthanised due to lack of suitable homes.
  • Undesexed domestic cats who are allowed to roam, add to stray cat population which can have a negative impact on wildlife.
  • Cats can become pregnant at just 4 months old, and dogs can become pregnant at 5 months so early desexing is important.
  • One undesexed female cat can produce 420,000 kittens over 7 years!**
  • Life-time registration fees are heavily subsidized for desexed animals.
