What Age Should You Spay or Neuter Your Cat?

Spaying and neutering are a critical aspect of pet ownership. The biggest dilemma for pet owners is — what is the appropriate time to get your cat “fixed”?

Key takeaways:

– There are three options, at 6 to 8 weeks, at 5 to 6 months and waiting until after the first heat at 8 to 12 months.

– Most vets prefer spaying or neutering at 5 months when anaesthesia and surgery is safe for the pet.

– Spaying helps reduce the risk of ovarian and uterine cancer while neutering is purely for behavioral reasons.

While there might be some differing opinions about the proper age to spay or neuter your cat, there’s no disputing that it’s one of the most responsible things a pet owner can do, not only for the life of a pet, but also to reduce pet overpopulation.
