Cat Neutering and Spaying

Domestic cat population control is very important. We have many local rescue organizations in the Greater Moncton Area because of our cat overpopulation. The goal is to give all cats a healthy, happy life with minimized risk for illness or stress, and it has been proven that surgically sterilized cats live much longer with less presentation of illness overall.

What is spaying or neutering?

Spaying or ovariohysterectomy is the surgical removal of the ovaries and uterine horns in a female cat. Neutering or castration is the surgical removal of the testicles from the male cat.

When should I neuter/spay my cat?

Spaying and neutering is recommended in cats before they reach “teenager status” or sexual maturity. The traditional time is at 6 months of age. Most cats experience their first heat (females only) or behaviour changes such as spraying/aggression (mostly males) around 7 months of age if not surgically altered on time.

What is the procedure to spay or neuter a cat?

Spay or neuter procedures are day surgeries, which means they are dropped off the morning of and picked up later in the day. They must be fasted (no food or drink), and will be groggy that evening. They will be back to their regular selves by the next day, but must rest for 10-14 days as their surgical site(s) heal.
