Cat Neutering and Spaying
It is important to have your cat spayed or neutered as it can help them live a longer healthier life, as well as, help control the cat overpopulation within our cities.
What is spaying or neutering?
Spaying and neutering is the surgical removal of your cat’s reproductive system. A spay is the surgical removal of a female cat’s ovaries and uterus while neutering is the removal of a male cat’s testicles. Having your pet spayed or neutered can help reduce the risks of some diseases and behavioural issues that may develop.
When should I neuter/spay my cat?
Kittens should be spayed or neutered when they reach sexual maturity which is usually between five to six months of age.
What is the procedure to spay/neuter a cat?
A spay is the surgical removal of a female animal’s reproductive organs, so she cannot become pregnant. A neuter is the surgical removal of a male animal’s testicles so that he cannot impregnate a female.
What are prices for spay/neuter a cat?
For spaying or neutering, your cat will be admitted to hospital and a thorough physical exam will be performed. From here, an anesthetic protocol will be established for your cat. For females, their ovaries and uterus are surgically excised and for males, their testicles are surgically excised. They are given pain medication following the procedure. All of our surgery patients receive an exam 10-14 days post-surgery.
Our service price includes intravenous fluids, pre and post-operative pain medication and nail trim. All prices vary based on the size and maturity of your cat.
