Cat Neutering and Spaying
Neutering or spaying your pet is an important part of being a responsible pet owner. By neutering your boy, you are reducing his interest in escaping out of the house, spraying, smelly urine and testicular cancer. Spaying your cat will prevent her from repeated heat cycles, pyometra (infection of the uterus) and reduce the chance of mammary tumors. These procedures are performed routinely and help to control to cat population.
What is spaying or neutering?
Spaying is the procedure where the doctor removes the female reproductive organs. Neutering is the procedure where the doctor removes the male cats’ testicles.
When should I neuter/spay my cat?
We recommend to spay or neuter around 6 months of age.
