We strongly recommend desexing all animals that are not required for breeding. The main benefits of desexing are preventing unwanted litters, reducing undesirable behaviours such as urine spraying and roaming in males and reducing the risk of health problems later in life. These health problems include mammary tumours, ovarian and uterine tumours and uterine infections. The health benefits of desexing are maximised if undertaken before females first oestrus
We recommend desexing at 5-6 months age.
