Get in quick to have your pet snipped
De-sexpo has been a major success in 2015

Logan's popular De-sexpo is once again proving a hit with a record number of animals de-sexed in the first month of the 2015 campaign.

More than 58 cats and dogs have been de-sexed at the Combined Vets of Logan Clinic with similar numbers being reported by the 14 other participating vet clinics in the City of Logan. 

Animals and City Standards Committee Chairperson, Councillor Graham Able (Division 5), said the two-month annual campaign continued to attract a lot of interest.

"De-sexpo is a great time to bring in your pet as you receive a microchip and free nail clipping for dogs," he said.

"Once your pet is de-sexed you also save money on registration fees so we expect bookings will remain high throughout August so I would encourage everybody to book an appointment.

"De-sexpo is all about reducing the number of unwanted cats and dogs that will need rehoming in our community and has been a very successful initiative."

De-sexing reduces the risk of pets getting cancer or other diseases of the reproductive organs and can help prevent pets from roaming, fighting or causing nuisance to neighbours

Cr Able said de-sexing is important part of responsible pet ownership and is mandatory for cats in Logan unless the owner is a registered breeder.

"Every cat and dog that is de-sexed during July and August 2015 at a participating veterinary clinic automatically goes in the draw to win a prize pack valued at $100 so this really is the perfect time to give your pet the snip."

For bookings phone your local participating vet or 3209 3220 for the Combined Vets of Logan City Community De-sexing and Microchip Clinic located at the Animal Management Centre.
