 Caring for Companion Animals

Spaying your Cat

 

Female cats can become pregnant from the age of 4½ months, although most wait until they are 7 or 8 months before coming into season for the first time.  Unless you are prepared for finding homes for litters, potential risks and costs of pregnancy and rearing the kittens, we usually "spay" female cats at the age of 6 months.

 

The operation requires a general anaesthetic and the cat will be given pain relief injections to help control any discomfort.  In most cases, there will be an incision, with sutures, on the cat's flank.  A full ovariohysterectomy is preferred and we will arrange to check the cat at 3 days post op and 10 days for suture removal.
