Desexing

Our aim is to provide Palmerston North and the greater Manawatu the most affordable de-sexing prices available.

 

Desexing or neutering your pet is a surgical procedure that prevents them from being able to reproduce. In male pets it is commonly referred to as “castration”, and in female pets as “speying”.This is the most frequent surgery performed by our vets, and generally your pet is home by the evening of surgery.

The most common age to desex your pet is between 4 and 6 months, however they are never too old to be desexed.

There are many benefits to desexing your pet before 6 months. They include:

  • Preventing unwanted litters, which can be very costly, and may add to the already overwhelming number of stray animals that are put down each year

  • Prevention of testicular cancer and prostate disease in males, and it can help prevent pyometra (infection of the uterus) and mammary tumours (breast cancer) in females

  • Stopping the “heat” cycle in females 

  • Decreasing aggression towards humans and other animals, especially in males

  • Being less prone to wander, especially in males

  • Living a longer and healthier life

  • Reduction of council registration fees
