What age can a male cat get fixed

A male cat can be neutered as early as four-weeks-old.

What are the risks of neutering my cat?

Neutering your cat is a very safe procedure and very rarely does an owner have an adverse reaction to the procedure. The most common adverse reaction is that the cat has a little bit of discomfort, but it's very minor.

Are there any complications with neutering my cat?

The complication that we see is that after neutering, the cat has an increased tendency to get urinary tract disease. We recommend that the owner have the cat checked by a veterinarian every four to six months after neutering and have a urine sample tested to ensure that the cat is not getting urinary tract disease.

How do I get my cat neutered?

The procedure is performed under sedation, and the cat is anesthetized and placed in a sterile drape. The procedure is performed either on a sedation table or in an anesthetized cage.

How much does neutering cost?

The cost is approximately $100.

Do I need to take my cat to the veterinarian for neutering?

Yes, you need to take the cat to a veterinarian for the procedure.

When can I bring my cat for neutering?

You can bring your cat in as early as four-weeks-old and from that point on, you can bring your cat every six-weeks for neutering.

Domestic cats purr at a frequency of about 26 Hertz, in a range that promotes tissue regeneration. That's not as crazy as it sounds: High-impact exercise promotes bone health for the same reason, because bones respond to pressure by making themselves stronger. In their natural setting, cats spend a lot of time lying around waiting to hunt, so purring may stimulate bones so that they don't become weak or brittle. Read more
