Cat Neutering and Spaying

Cat neutering and spaying are always recommended because it prevents unwanted litters of kittens. Cats can have multiple litters of kittens a year, so it helps control the cat population. It also prevents some concerns and fighting between male cats if neutered.

What is spaying or neutering?

Spaying is when the female cat’s ovaries and uterus are removed to prevent pregnancy. Neutering or castration is when the male cat’s testicles are removed.

When should I neuter/spay my cat?

You should neuter/spay your cat at 6 months of age before they mature and have a heat cycle.

What is the procedure to spay/neuter a cat?

The procedure to spay/neuter a cat is to first come in for an exam so the vet can make sure they are healthy and okay for surgery. The feline must be up to date on vaccines also to stay at the clinic. The cat is dropped off in the am where they undergo anesthetic and then surgery. The owner can pick up the cat after 3:00 pm the same day as long as everything goes well during surgery.
