Desexing your pet is an important part of being a responsible owner. In fact, it’s compulsory in the ACT unless you have a permit. There are already too many animals without loving homes – we certainly don’t need any more unexpected, potentially unwanted puppies and kittens.
Of course, your furry friend is a part of your family, and getting them desexed can be a nerve-wracking process. To give you peace of mind, we asked Canberra locals to share their favourite vet practices with reliable pet desexing procedures.
In this article, we’ll share the top three places to get your beloved pet desexed. Let’s get started right away.
What makes a great pet desexing service?
Your pet means everything to you, and their safety and wellbeing are of paramount importance. Keep an eye out for the following traits so you can rest easy knowing your animal is in safe and capable hands:
- Qualified staff. First and foremost, ensure the vet you choose to work with is fully qualified. That way, you know they have the training necessary to carry out safe, effective desexing procedures.
- Years of experience. Experienced vets have seen it all before. If there are any hiccups during the procedure, they know exactly how to overcome it quickly and safely.
- Fantastic reputation. Ask your friends and family where they go their pets desexed. Word of mouth is a powerful tool for determining a practice’s reputation.
