Spay / neuter
About feline SPAY
When a female cat gets spayed, her ovaries and uterus are removed which means no noisy heat cycles. Spays are performed under general anesthesia with careful monitoring. Your cat is given pain medication and, in most cases, is ready to go home at the end of the day.
About feline NEUTER
Neutering is the removal of the testicles of a male cat; the penis is left intact. The surgery is done under general anesthesia with careful monitoring. Two small incisions are made. Your cat is given pain medication and, in most cases, is ready to go home at the end of the day.
