Desexing

Dog Desexing

This is a surgical procedure in which the reproductive organs are removed. There are many benefits of desexing that should be considered such as: prevention of unwanted pregnancies, prevention of undesirable behaviour (urine marking, aggression), prevention of certain disease (prostate disease and testicular tumours in males, uterine infections and mammary tumours in females.) Dogs reach sexual maturity between 6 to 12 months and we usually recommend sterilisation at around 6 months of age prior to them developing dominant or aggressive behaviour or the females coming into season.
