Desexing

Desexing your cat or dog

At Dapto Veterinary Clinic, we generally recommend desexing your cat at 4 months of age and dogs at 6 months of age if they are not being used for breeding purposes. There are however certain situations where we may recommend a different age – please call and discuss desexing with one of our veterinarians if you have any queries.

The desexing procedure requires your animal to undergo a general anaesthetic and spend the day in hospital. This procedure is much more invasive for female pets (compared to males), and they are generally quite subdued for the first couple days after surgery.

Please call us on (02) 4261 4055 to discuss desexing your pet.
