Cat Spaying and Neutering

What is a cat neuter?

Also known as castration, neutering is the complete removal of the testicles. It is performed to avoid accidental pregnancies and reduce unwanted male behaviours, such as urine spraying and fighting with other cats.

What is a cat spay?

This is the surgical removal of the uterus and ovaries. It prevents unwanted pregnancies and reduces long-term health issues such as mammary tumours and uterine infections, not to mention eliminates many behavioural issues.

When to neuter or spay a cat?

Typically this is done between 6-8 months of age. If required, these procedures can be done at a younger age and there is no upper age limit to when they can be fixed.
