Spaying and Neutering
Cat spaying and neutering is the most common medical procedure for cats. Spaying and neutering refers to the surgical sterilization of animals. Once your cat has been spayed or neutered he or she can no longer reproduce. While cat spaying and neutering can be performed at any age, it is safer and less painful for the cat at 6 to 7 weeks old. In addition to preventing pregnancy, spaying and neutering eliminates the pets heat cycle, it reduces the urge to roam, and reduces the possibility of disease in the reproductive system.
