Desexing

Having your pet desexed is an important part of being a responsible pet owner and we believe that they generally live longer and healthier lives than those that are not.  Desexing your pet has many health and behavioural benefits such as reducing the risks of cancers, unwanted litters, roaming, urine marking/spraying and dominance. We desex a range of species including dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs and a variety of farm animals.
