What is spaying or neutering?

Neutering involves a surgical procedure to make your cat sterile, or unable to have or produce kittens. It is important for population control and it offers a number of other benefits as well.

When should I neuter/spay my cat?

Our veterinarians recommend spaying or neutering around 6 months of age.

What is the procedure to spay/neuter a cat?
