Cat Neutering and Spaying

Having your cat spayed or neutered is the responsible thing to do as a cat owner. Many unwanted kittens end up in shelters, become stray or feral, left in boxes or even destroyed inhumanely. We work with cat owners, as well as shelters and rescue organizations to reduce the feral and stray populations in our area. Having your cat fixed greatly reduces these populations. Cats often suffer from our outdoor elements, winter as well as summer and can even die. Spaying and neutering is the number one thing you can do for your cat.

What is spaying or neutering?

Spaying and neutering is a surgical procedure that removes your cat’s reproductive system to ensure they cannot reproduce.

When should I neuter/spay my cat?

The best time to spay or neuter your cat is between 5 and 6 months. This allows the cat to mature enough to undergo the surgery safely but avoids unwanted reproduction which can typically happen around 6 months of age.

What is the procedure to spay/neuter a cat?

The procedure for a spay involves the removal of the cat’s uterus as well as ovaries. This is called an ovariohysterectomy or OVH. Neutering is the removal of the male testicles, also known as castration.
