Desexing, Neutering or Sterilisation, the Spey (for females) or Castration (for males) are many terms which all mean the same thing. This operation is a cause of much concern for many owners who wonder whether they should have it done and are often just worried about their young pup or kitten or kit having an operation. Desexing in dogs and cats is usually performed at 6 months of age prior to the first heat. Rabbits and ferrets are desexed at months of age. All animals are given a physical examination prior to anaesthesia, and all animals receive potent post-operative pain relief. Our anesthetics are state of the art with protocols and patient monitoring similar to those used in human anaesthesia. We find owners are surprised by how little their animal is affected by the procedure, and how happy they are at afternoon collection. Desexing helps animals live in harmony with us and is recommended for family pets. However, we try to present the facts in a plain and unbiased way and let owners make up their mind, and always respect their decision if they choose not to.
