How long to wait before spaying or neutering your cat?

The experts sometimes give us different opinions on this subject. You should have your cat spayed or neutered by six months of age.  Studies show that waiting until adulthood is not always best plus older cats require a longer recovery time. Kittens recover very fast and will be bouncing around again within a few days. After your cat is neutered or spayed, check the incision site for redness, pus or swelling which could be a sign of infection. See your vet if this occurs.

If your cat is older, make sure she has a comfortable place to rest after the surgery and pamper her with attention and treats.

The procedure is very routine and there are rarely complications.

Remember, your pets count!
