Companion Animal Network Australia
Policy & Position Statement:
Companion animals should be desexed at point of sale or transfer unless in an exempt category. Desexing exemptions can apply if:
- The animal is to be used for official purposes, trialling, showing or breed potential through a government-authorised (properly registered) organisation;
- There is a veterinary-authorised medical condition which would put the animal at serious risk if desexed; or
- The new owner has a government-authorised permit for breeding.
