Cat Neutering

Cat Neutering and Spaying

These surgeries ensure that your cat is safe from common diseases of the reproductive organs that often develop in the later years of an unfixed cat’s life. It can also improve annoying ‘marking’ behaviour, thus saving your home and furniture. Often a noticeable, generally positive, change in behaviour is also noticed once a cat has been spayed or neutered, thus improving the quality of life for you and your pet.

What is spaying or neutering?


Spaying (for females) or neutering (for males) surgically removes the reproductive organs and renders the cat sterile, unable to produce offspring. It stops the production of the reproductive hormones that result in mating behaviour, aggression, and the heat cycle. It also improves the overall health and quality of life as the cat grows and matures.

When should I neuter/spay my cat?


It is best to spay or neuter before the cat reaches puberty, usually at between 6 to 8 months. Another reason for waiting until the cat grows up a bit more to reduce the risk of anesthetic complications.

What is the procedure to spay/neuter a cat?


Cat neuter is performed under heavy sedation, that cannot be reversed once the testicles have been removed. A spay is a more invasive procedure that requires a full general anesthetic as we have to open the abdomen to remove the female reproductive organs.
