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.
