Cat Neutering and Spaying
Neutering, spaying or castrating your cat is essential to control unwanted pregnancies and to help reduce the overpopulation of strays in desperate need of a good home. Not only is this a responsible thing to do as a cat owner, but it is also helpful to reduce the risks of some cancers, other potential health concerns and unwanted behaviours.
What is spaying or neutering?
: Spaying is the surgical removal of the ovaries and often the uterus from female cats. Castrating/Spaying is the surgical removal of the testes from male cats.
When should I neuter/spay my cat?
We recommend spaying or castrating your cat at 6 months of age. It is very important to spay your female cat BEFORE her first heat cycle. Neutering a male cat at 6 months of age can help lessen the chance of spraying and marking items with urine.
