A survey of registered ACT veterinarians in 2017 examined the influence of veterinarian demographics, attitudinal differences to cats and dogs and fundamental beliefs towards pet overpopulation on likelihood to recommend and perform prepubertal desexing. It found veterinarian demographics had a significant affect on likelihood of performing prepubertal desexing. This presentation will discuss the research and explore the issues around mandatory prepubertal desexing as a policy.
