posted by Jim Murphy

There are lots of myths regarding the neutering of your cat out there. We’re going to clear up a few of them.

myth – Early neutering is more likely to prevent bad behavior as opposed to cats neutered at a later age.

truth – It doesn’t matter when you have your cat neutered. There is the same reduction in negative behavior after the cat  neutered.

myth – Neutering your cat will make him fat.

truth – The only thing that makes your cat fat is lack of exercise, the wrong diet and overfeeding.

myth –  If a kitten is neuter too early, it’s growth will be stunted.

truth –  Your kitten will reach it’s full size but will not develop a more masculine appearance.

myth – If a kitten is neutered too early, it will have a narrowed  urethra will can cause urinary obstruction.

truth – There is no association between early neutering and urinary obstruction.

 

I hope this clears up some of your concerns regarding neutering. Remember, your pets count!
