Why Neuter Your Cat?

There are many health and behavioural advantages to neutering both males and females at an early age if they are not to be used for breeding purposes.

Queen (female) – Spay

Prevents the occurrence of the following:

  • Unwanted pregnancies (up to 3 a year is possible)Version 2
  • Infection of the uterus (womb)
  • Breast cancer
  • Reduces risk of cat AIDS and leukaemia
  • Seasons
  • Unwanted attention from male cats

Female cats should be kept indoors at all times until neutered. The recommended age is 4-5 months but the operation can be performed and is recommended in any older queen. Cats can be spayed any time during the breeding season. As soon as any kittens are weaned, the mother can be spayed.

Tom (male) – Castration

Prevents the occurrence of the following:

  • Spraying and unpleasant odours
  • Aggression (cat fights)
  • Wandering over large areas and becoming involved in road traffic accidents
  • Cat AIDS

The recommended age is 4-5 months but can be performed and is recommended in any older tom. Give your pet the chance of a longer, healthier life
