Desexing for your pet
Desexing or neutering involves removing part of a pet’s reproductive system so that they can’t have babies.
Usually we perform this procedure are dogs and cats but other animals like rabbits and ferrets can also be desexed. In female animals it is called a “spey” and in males it is referred to as “castration”.
Why desex my pet at Vets of Geelong?
Desexing ultimately prevents unwanted pregnancies in female cats and dogs. It helps stop unwanted attention from males and reduces the wandering instinct.
There are also health benefits associated with desexing. Desexing actually reduces the risk of cancers in both males and females, as well as other life threatening conditions such as pyometra.
With the large number of strays and abandoned animals euthanised every year we recommend you desex your pet. Maximum benefits are achieved if desexing is done at a young age.
We only use state of the art anaesthetics and our local suburb vets are very experienced in desexing surgery – your pet will be in the safest of hands.

What an experience, amazing ♡
From walking in the door...to keeping my best friend in great health. Thanks Vets of Geelong for the level of care, and to Josie and James especially for their genuine care and empathy toward our family. #memorable

Can not recommend more highly. The guys at reception are lovely, and the Vets & nurses really know their stuff. Our pets love them too ❤️ Prices are extremely competitive also, thanks for looking after our little ones!

Visits to the vet can sometimes be a difficult experience, but Vets of Geelong (Geelong West and Highton) make it that little bit easier. Very friendly staff and welcoming.
I really appreciate the follow up calls the next day - a nice bonus touch!

Have been to both Highton and Geelong West Veterinary Clinics and both have been outstanding with their friendliness, care and compassion towards both patient and clients. I was very satisfied with the care/treatment my animals received. I just received a follow up letter asking how my Dog is doing and some goodies/vouchers. How lovely

Very happy with the service provided and would highly recommend the Geelong West vet to anyone who needs any form of pet care. Kind and caring staff who take pride in making you and for me my cat feel safe . The after care support is excellent aswell.

Our main vet Annie has looked after our boy Badger so well along with the rest of the team. They've really brought him so much happiness in his old age.
Love the ID tags as well, brilliant idea.
