Cat Spaying

Cat Neutering and Spaying

Cats are effective breeders, so making sure your cat is neutered or spayed is very important. Aside from preventing unwanted kittens, neutering/spaying has plenty of health benefits too. Neutered males are less likely to roam, fight and less likely to spray in your home! Got a female cat? No more being woken up by her yowling when she’s in heat! One intact female can be responsible for 20,000 kittens in five years!! Why spay or neuter your cat? The chance of contracting some infectious diseases will be reduced, as will the likelihood of developing mammary tumours (breast cancers), pyometra (life-threatening womb infections), testicular cancer and many other illnesses.

What is spaying or neutering?

Spaying is the surgical removal of a cat’s ovaries and uterus, while neutering is the removal of a male cat’s testicles. Both procedures are conducted routinely with few complications.

When should I neuter/spay my cat?

We usually recommend spaying and neutering cats around 5-6 months of age. They come in the morning of surgery, spend the day with us and are ready to go home after 3 pm the same day. They’re routine surgeries we perform daily.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Monday, March 23, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 403-278-3168. We will bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. The veterinarian will then call you to discuss our recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a technician will return your pet to your car and take care of any needed medications and payment.

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday to Friday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm.

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the clinic. Our staff will bring your order to your car.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

6. Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our jobs. We have taken these measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this disease.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid, and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
