All about cats

What age can you neuter cats

Cats can be neutered at any age. Neutering cats helps reduce the overall population of unwanted cats. Neutering also reduces the nuisance cat population, which is a happy by-product. The surgery is the same for male and female cats. It is performed under local anesthesia. You will have a short recovery period and you will be able to return to work in a few days.

How old does a cat have to be to be neutered?

The minimum age for neutering is 6 months. However, some of our clients have chosen to neuter their cats as young as 4 months old.

Can you neuter a kitten?

Yes, we can neuter kittens. We will use a general anesthetic and the surgery can be performed as early as 6 weeks old.

What are the risks?

Neutering is a safe procedure. The risks associated with neutering include:

Some minor bruising, but this is minimal and will be completely resolved within 24 hours.

Most cats will not require antibiotics, but some may require a course of antibiotics to prevent infection in the incision site.

A small percentage will develop a small, superficial wound in the incision site. This is usually seen within the first 2 weeks after the surgery. Your veterinarian can determine if antibiotics are required.

How much does it cost?

The cost of neutering is based on a variety of factors, such as the age of the cat, the size of the cat and the number of cats to be neutered. Please contact us for a quote.

Can you neuter a male cat?

Yes, we can neuter male cats as well. You will have a short recovery period and you will be able to return to work in a few days.
