Common Desexing Questions

After the operation, your pet will likely maintain their original personality, possibly exhibiting a calmer and less aggressive demeanor.

Following desexing, your pet’s metabolism may experience a slight decrease due to hormonal changes. However, this can be effectively managed by adjusting their feeding regimen and ensuring they receive adequate exercise. There’s no reason why a desexed pet cannot maintain a healthy weight.


After the procedure, your pet may experience some tenderness, which is typical after any surgery. However, most pets recover swiftly. We provide pain relief before and after the surgery, and your pet will be given a short course of pain relief medication to take at home for the initial days following the surgery. In many instances, your pet may require some gentle encouragement to take it easy during the recovery period.

Potential risks or complications associated with desexing include:

  • Infection at the surgical site
  • Adverse reactions to anesthesia
  • Bleeding during or after the procedure
  • Development of seromas (fluid-filled pockets) at the incision site
  • In rare cases, complications related to the removal of reproductive organs, such as urinary incontinence or changes in hormone levels.

However, it’s important to note that these risks are relatively low, and most pets undergo desexing without experiencing any significant complications. Your veterinarian will discuss any potential risks and provide guidance on how to minimize them before the procedure.
