Spaying or Neutering Your Cat


Your rating: None

To protect your cat's health and help control pet overpopulation, you should have your cat spayed or neutered by the time they reach 6 months old. The procedures have many additional health benefits as well.

For Female Cats
Spaying prevents unwanted pregnancy, prevents cancer of the reproductive system, and eliminates the potential for infections of the uterus later in life, especially if performed before the first heat cycle.

For Male Cats
Neutering eliminates the potential for cancer of the testicles. The male is also no longer agitated by females and the strong hormonal drive to reproduce. He will tend to stop marking or spraying, and he'll roam less, decreasing the potential to be hit by a car or otherwise injured, become lost or be involved in territorial fights.
