Cat Neutering and Spaying

Spaying and neutering are surgical procedures to remove reproductive organs. Spaying or neutering your kitten prevents him or her from having unwanted offspring. It also decreases the amount of kittens/cats that end up in shelters or are summoned to a life on the streets. It also has very important health and behavior benefits for your cat.

What is spaying or neutering?

Spaying and neutering are surgical procedures used to remove the reproductive organs. Spaying is the removal of the uterus and ovaries of a female cat. It is performed under general anesthesia and most often involves an overnight stay in the hospital. Complications are rare and recover normally within 10 days. Neutering is also carried out under general anesthesia and removes the male cat’s testicles. The small wound that results usually heal in about a week. These procedures are also sometimes referred to as “sterilizing” or “fixing” pets.

When should I neuter/spay my cat?

These procedures are generally recommended for kittens before they reach sexual maturity at about 5-6 months old.This gives your kitten time to grow and mature enough to safely undergo general anesthesia.
