Welcome to Tropical Vet Services
July is pet de-sexing month
We have all seen and heard the stories about the numbers of unwanted pets that are in our communities these days. Euthanasia of healthy young animals is unfortunately far too common an occurrence throughout Australia. The number one reason for this is unwanted puppies or kittens being dumped at animal shelters, Vet clinics or even on the road side.
Part of responsible pet ownership is the de-sexing of pet animals that are not required for breeding. Puppies and Kittens can routinely be de-sexed from 5 months of age depending on the breed and size of the animal and it’s never too late to desex them, either. In fact, the risk of certain diseases increases with age, so desexing is even more important for older dogs. Waiting until after it has had its first heat or litter is not recognised as a benefit to the animal concerned. If you do not intend breeding from your pet then the best thing you can do for your pet and for the community as a whole is to get it de-sexed at an early age.
To encourage responsible pet ownership Tropical Vet Services is offering a 10% discount on all dogs and cats de-sexed in July. To take up this offer it is very important that you make an appointment well ahead of time to avoid missing out on this opportunity.
