Cat Neutering & Spaying

Cat Neutering and Spaying

Spaying or neutering your cat has many benefits. The procedure, which prevents cats from reproducing, can help your cat live a longer, healthier life. Spaying or neutering will not negatively change your pet’s personality.

What is spaying or neutering?


Spaying or ovariohysterectomy is the removal of the ovaries and uterus. Neutering or orchidectomy is the surgical removal of the testicles.

When should I neuter/spay my cat?


Both procedures should be conducted at 6 months of age.

What is the procedure to spay/neuter a cat?


We schedule spay or neuter surgery as a day procedure. Your cat will usually be going home the same day. Please give us a call to book a spay/neuter procedure.
