Cat Neutering and Spaying

Spaying and neutering are an important part of feline population control. Many cats and kittens in shelters may never find homes. It can also help to prevent or eliminate negative behaviours such as urine marking and the desire to roam in search of a mate.

What is spaying or neutering?

Spaying and neutering remove the organs necessary for reproduction.

When should I neuter/spay my cat?

Cats should be spayed or neutered at 5.5 to 6 months of age. Ideally, females should be spayed before their first heat cycle which happens at six months of age for most cats.

What is the procedure to spay/neuter a cat?

For males cats, it is a minor surgery where we completely remove the testicles. For female cats, we need to make an incision into the abdomen which is a more in depth procedure. We provide pre-anesthetic blood work, intravenous fluids and pain medication included in the cost of spaying. We provide pain control for male and female cats. Our goal is to ensure that your cat is as comfortable as possible during and after their surgery. Both procedures will require your cat to be hospitalized, and they will be released later the same afternoon.
