A house is not really a home without a pet, our pets are usually considered another member of the family, as with any family member their health is paramount.

Hanly Vet Clinic and Hospital in Maddington has been caring for the health and wellbeing of Perth pets for more than 40 years and practice owner, Dr Gary Hanly, is a staunch advocate of sterilising your animals, because of the many benefits to health and wellbeing.

Dr Gary tells us, "With most dogs and cats, sterilising reduces their stress levels & aggression towards other animals and it also stops them from roaming, so they're less likely to be injured in a fight or hit by cars. Most animals are much more content after sterilisation, too. Sterilisation can also prevent uterine infection as a bitch ages and prevent anal tumours and prostate cancer in dogs. Sterilsing your pets will also avoid unwanted pregnancies, which, at the end of the day, saves lives."
    
Tens of  thousands of puppies and kittens are euthanised every year because pet owners didn't plan so, by sterilising your pet, you're making sure that you're not contributing to the huge number of unwanted animals that are put down every year.  Hanly Vet team are so committed to saving the lives of unwanted animals that they offer sterilisation at an affordable price.

Dr Hanly also has a few other simple tips to help you take the best possible care of your pet. "Pets are a lot like people," he tells us. "They need a healthy natural diet, regular exercise and plenty of TLC. Things like keeping them free of worms and fleas, making sure they've had their vaccinations and having a regular check-up from your vet are all simple things you can do. Pet ownership is your right and privilege. It is also your responsibility. Live intimately with your pet. Enjoy its intelligence, acceptance and contentment with life . In return you will be a more humble and compassionate person - when all else fails hug your pet."
