While not mandatory, desexing sterilises a dog or cat so they can't have puppies or kittens. Desexing can also reduce roaming behaviour or territorial aggression. It’s important to remember kittens as young as 4 months of age are able to breed.
You’ll also receive reductions on registration fees after desexing your pet.
Only a qualified vet can carry out the desexing operation.
For more information on desexing, visit the Victorian Government's website for desexing cats and dogs.
