Desexing Your Pet

Published on Thursday, 23 June 2022 at 9:24:10 AM

When you desex your pet, you’re doing yourself, your pet and your community a big favour.
Your pet’s health and longevity improve, you’re saving yourself large vet bills from all the health complications that could come from an undesexed pet, and you are preventing unwanted litters ending up in pounds or shelters. The National Desexing Network (NDN) is an Australia-wide referral system giving pet owners in financial need access to low-cost desexing. Their goal is to end pet overpopulation by making desexing available and more affordable to pet owners who need it most. If you’re a pet owner you could be eligible for discounted desexing for your pet, directly on-line if you are a pension/concession card holder; or through calling the NDN team.
Australia has one of the highest rates of pet ownership in the world. Four out of five Australians have owned a pet at some time and almost two-thirds of Australian households currently own pets.
Cats and dogs can breed at an astounding rate, especially in the warmer months.
National Desexing Month in July 2022 encourages desexing before the spring breeding season.
