Help! Should I desex my cat, Fortitude Valley Vet?

emporium vet pet shop fortitude valley microchip desex teneriffe new farm


Desexed female cats are at much-reduced risk of contracting breast, ovarian, uterine cancers and other uterine infections. Breast cancer in female cats have a higher tendency to be fatal too. Castrating male cats helps to reduce their urge to roam and fight with other cats. They are also less likely to urine spray and stink up your home with their pee.


Should I desex my cat, Fortitude Valley Vet?


Statistic shows that 75% of cats hit by cars are not desexed. Another reason why you should desex your cat and keep it indoors only!

An adult cat can have 1 to 8 kittens per litter up to 3 times per year. Do the math and you will find out the reason why there are so many cats at the shelter (not to mention the growing numbers of feral/stray cats!).

Up to 38,000 unwanted cats and kittens are euthanized at the pound and shelters every year, so why add to the problem?

It is also important to note that it may be required by law to desex your cat in some states unless you are a registered breeder. Some councils also offer discounted registration if your cat is desexed.
