Neutering Your Female Cat

The medical and social reasons for spaying your cat

  1. reduces the number of unwanted kittens.
  2. reduces the incidence of cat fights.
  3. prevents ovarian and uterine cancer.
  4. prevents pyometra a potentially life threatening disease of the uterus.
  5. dramatically reduces the incidence of mammary cancer.

All neutering operations are carried out on a day care basis so your pet will be admitted to the surgery in the morning and will he able to go home in the afternoon.


Neutering the female cat is done from the age of 6 months of age.

She will be clipped on her side usually and will have a small incision closed with one or two sutures.

The uterus and ovaries are removed and hence your cat will have no further seasons.

The sutures are removed 10 days after the surgery.

When you come to collect your cat you will receive full written instructions on her after care.

It is our policy to offer a pre-anaesthetic blood test to any animal having a general anaesthetic. This is carried out on the day of her operation and enables us to check that her liver and kidneys are in good health.
