Cat Neutering and Spaying
Spaying and neutering your pet is an important part of pet ownership, especially if you intend to let your cat outdoors. Cat overpopulation is a serious problem in the Chatham-Kent area, and intact outdoor cats are a large contributor to this. Spaying and neutering can also reduce or eliminate the risk of mammary tumours and uterine infections in female cats and testicular cancer in male cats.
What is spaying or neutering?
Spaying is complete removal of a female cat’s ovaries and uterus. Neutering is the complete removal of a male cat’s testicles.
When should I neuter/spay my cat?
Our veterinarians recommend performing spay and neuter surgeries between 4-6 months for cats. It is before a young cat’s hormones start to affect their bodies.
