Across Australia, animal shelters and rescue organisations are overflowing with unwanted pets. In fact, they euthanize thousands of pets across the country each month. Many of these animals are the result of unplanned pregnancy. Desexing your pets prevents this from happening. In addition, it also some behaviour problems and health issues.
The best time to desex your pet is between four and six months of age but vets can desex pets of any age. Desexings at the Cairns Vet Clinic are performed from Monday to Friday. They are always safe and comfortable because we include modern analgesic/anaesthetic protocols, catheterisation, intravenous fluid therapy, proper intra-operative monitoring, take-home pain relief, and an Elizabethan collar, all as standard.
