The best vet desexing prices in Melbourne

Looking for an expert desexing vet for your beloved pet? Melbourne Pet Surgery is here to serve you with comprehensive care. We specialise in affordable pet desexing, ensuring a safe and comfortable experience for your furry friends.

The desexing procedure at Melbourne Pet Surgery

When it comes to desexing your pet, it doesn't matter if it's male or female; for the first three to four days post-surgery, they will feel some discomfort, therefore we recommend pain management.

Regardless of vet desexing cost, special offers, or discounts, we provide your pets with non-steroidal and opioid pain relief injections on the day and oral pain relief medication to give at home following surgery as standard. 

We also provide IV fluids during and after the treatment to maintain hydration levels and assist with heart and kidney function, as it may be many hours before your pet can drink again.

Additionally, we offer preoperative blood testing to confirm that your pet is healthy on the inside and to ensure their liver and kidneys are functioning normally.

Desexing female pets can reduce the risk of:
  • Mammary tumours
  • Metritis
  • Pyometra
  • Ovarian / Uterine / Vaginal neoplasia (tumours)
  • Ovarian cysts
Desexing male pets can reduce the risk of:
  • Perineal hernias
  • Testicular tumours
  • Prostate diseases
  • Perianal adenomas
  • Sex based unwanted behaviours
  • Urine spraying in cats
