Spaying your kitten

Follow Us on Facebook

We recommend having your female kitten spayed at 4 – 6 months of age.  A “spay” is an ovariohysterectomy (removing both ovaries and uterus).  Although routine, it is a major procedure, which is why we take extra precautions to ensure your kitten’s safety and recovery.

There are many health benefits to having your kitten spayed, including:

•    Significantly reduced chance of developing breast cancer later in life (if spayed before 1st heat cycle)

•    She won’t develop pyometra, a potentially fatal infection of the uterus.

•    No possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer

•    No risk of Mastitis

    • Examination
    • Pre-anesthetic Bloodwork

    • Recheck & suture removal 10-14 days post surgery

Many people are surprised to learn that nationwide more than 3 million cats and dogs are euthanized in shelters each year.  Often they are the offspring of cherished family pets, even purebreds. Many homeless animals have to be euthanized because there are more dogs and cats entering shelters than there are people willing to provide them with loving homes.  Even if you do find homes for your pet’s offspring, that means fewer homes available for pets in shelters.
