Cat Neutering and Spaying
At College Manor Veterinary Hospital, we recommend every pet has their ovariohysterectomy (spay) or orchidectomy (neuter) procedure done as soon as it is deemed appropriate by the veterinarian. Typically, we recommend spaying or neutering your cat at 6 months of age. One of our wonderful veterinarians would love to meet you and your feline friend and discuss this VERY important procedure in greater detail at your convenience. Please feel free to call us at 905-853-4706 to schedule a consult today.
What is spaying or neutering?
Spaying or neutering your pet can help to prevent your best friend from having to go through otherwise unnecessary medical illnesses such as breast, or testicular cancers, prostate disease and unwanted pregnancies.
When should I neuter/spay my cat?
Here at College Manor Veterinary Hospital we recommend spaying or neutering your cat at about 6 months of age. There are of course “exceptions to every rule” and certainly, any issues or concerns you may have about the timeline can be addressed anytime during your puppy or kitten series of boosters.
What is the procedure to spay/neuter a cat?
When we neuter a male cat we remove both of his testicles. Likewise, when we spay a female cat we remove both her ovaries and her uterus. This procedure prevents both male and female cats from being able to reproduce. If you’d like more information on the procedure itself, the anesthetic or pain medications we use, recovery times etc., please call the clinic directly at (905) 853-4706.
