Desexing benefits

Desexing your dogs and cats is a socially responsible thing to do for a number of reasons:

  • It reduces territorial behaviour
  • It helps control your dog’s urge to wander
  • It reduces anti-social behaviours like leg mounting (humping), urine marking in male dogs and oestrus bleeding in female dogs
  • It reduces the likelihood of cancer and other diseases of the reproductive organs - uterine, ovarian and mammary diseases in female dogs and testicular cancers, some prostate diseases, perineal hernias and adenomas in male dogs
  • It increases the likelihood of your dogs and cats enjoying a longer and happier life
  • It eliminates unwanted litters of puppies or kittens
  • There are council registration rebates for dogs and cats that are both desexed and microchipped.

There is no evidence to support a common belief that a dog or cat should have at least one litter to be healthy and long-lived. Desexed dogs and cats are shown to live long and happy lives.
