Your kitten can get neutered from 5 months of age, we do not recommend letting your kitten outside until this is done as there is a risk of girls becoming pregnant and males wandering/fighting.
Unfortunately in the UK we have lots of unwanted kittens who can not find homes so to help prevent more unwanted kittens we recommend neutering at a young age.
There are also lots of benefits to getting it done.
Castration – will reduce the chances of your kitten wandering, roaming and fighting. It also removes the risk of testicle cancer and other health problems linked to hormones in older cats.
Spey – prevents unwanted pregnancy, reduces wandering, stops male cats stalking your house/cat if she comes into season. It will prevent uterine and ovarian cancer. It will also minimise the risk of mammary (breast) cancer.
Both of these procedures are DAY procedures so your kitten will be admitted and discharged in the same day. They are also generally safe procedures. Any of our vets will be happy to go into more detail and we perform pre-operative health checks on all kittens within a few days of the anaesthetic and operation.
We send all our kittens home with some pain relief after the operation to keep them comfortable. Females get a collar to prevent them licking their wounds.
