New requirements contained in the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995 (SA) and its regulations mean that as of 1 July 2018, it is in most instances compulsory to desex your dog or cat.
A dog or cat must be desexed: Before they reach six months' of age; OR Within 28 days of an owner taking possession of the animal.
There are many benefits to having your dog or cat desexed. Evidence suggests desexed pets live longer and have fewer diseases then undesexed pets! Desexed pets are less likely to get diseases and certain illnesses such as terine infections and mammary cancer females. Male dogs are less likely to get prostate problems and stray from home. Entire male dogs will go to extraordinary lengths to pursue a female dog on heat nearby, increasing chances of motor vehicle accidents, dog fights and lost pets.
Desexing your pet is a day surgery. This means you will bring your pet in the morning and collect your pet that night. Each of our veterinary locations run at hospital accredited standards, therefore you can be sure we use the most up to date medicine and your pet will be receiving state of the art care and facilities..
Give your nearest Pets and Their People Veterinary Surgery a call! You can speak with one of our dedicated veterinary staff. We would love to have the pleasure of caring for your pet during their desexing procedure.
