Cat Neutering and Spaying
At Crossroads Animal Hospital, we strongly believe that responsible cat ownership is synonymous with spaying and neutering.
What is spaying or neutering?
Spaying and neutering your cat is a routine surgery that significantly helps control the pet population. Spaying or neutering is the removal of the body parts necessary for reproduction. The neuter surgery consists of the testicles being removed so that he cannot impregnate a female cat. For the spay, it is the uterus and the ovaries that are removed so that she cannot become pregnant.
When should I neuter/spay my cat?
Most kittens we recommend spaying and neutering at 6 months of age.
