Desexing or neutering your pet is a surgical procedure that prevents them from being able to reproduce. In male pets it is commonly referred to as “castration”, and in female pets as “speying”. This is the most frequent surgery performed by our vets, and generally your pet is home by the evening of surgery.
The most common age to desex your pet is between 5 and 6 months, however they are never too old to be desexed.
To get your pet desexed, phone us on 07 573 7606 to schedule it on a mutually convenient day. The receptionist will be able to give you instructions on what to do prior to surgery. Dogs and female cats will need an appointment 10-12 days after surgery to check the wound and remove the skin sutures (stitches).

Local farmers, associated rural communities and Te Puke town people have supported Te Puke Vet Centre for over 50 years. During those years scores of receptionists, nurses and vets have lived and enjoyed the benefits of this great town and area. It is very important for Te Puke Vets that we are strongly integrated with the local community and as part of that we are proud to support many local schools, sports clubs, service organisations and community events.
