Desexing, also known as neutering, castration and spaying can be performed as early as 12 weeks of age and ideally by the time your kitten is 6 months old.

Desexing by 6 months of age usually results in a nicer pet, which is cleaner and has more socially acceptable behaviour. Desexing early also prevents those unwanted litters and reduces the chances of urine spraying, roaming and cat fight injuries.

We strongly recommend desexing all cats that are not intended for breeding. Contrary to popular belief a female cat does not benefit at all from having a litter of kittens.

At The Vet Centre we use modern equipment, anaesthetic agents and pain relief protocols. This helps to ensure a rapid and pain free recovery post surgery.
