Desexing benefits

Desexing your dog 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 dog enjoying  a longer and happier life
  • It eliminates unwanted litters of puppies or kittens
  • There are council registration rebates for a dog that is both desexed and microchipped
  • If your council requires cat registration, it may offer a discount for a desexed cat. Check with your local council.

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