Cat Neutering & Cat Castration

Breeders apart, we follow current guidelines from The Cat Group and the British Veterinary Association. We suggest that all female (queen) and male (tom) companion cats should be neutered from four months of age. Research from America indicates that both spayed queens and castrated toms live longer than their intact counterparts, are less likely to be hit by a car and less likely to require treatment for an animal bite – by a very significant margin in all three categories.
As with a canine bitch spay, a cat spay is an ovario-hysterectomy involving surgical removal of ovaries and uterus under general anaesthetic.

With a tom, we remove the testicles so he is unable to breed. Again, it’s a routine procedure for us but still comes with the attendant risks of major surgery.

 

The advantages of neutering your cat

 

  • Neither unwanted pregnancies nor accidental litters – plus no noisy night-time mating disturbances.
  • Prevents tricky complications like feline caesarean section and serious conditions like feline mammary cancer and infected uteri (pyometra) in females – and testicular cancer or prostate problems in males.
  • Reduces the risk of feline urine spraying and feline roaming that can end in death or injury in fights or on the road.
