De-sexing your Cat

If you are not planning to breed from your pet, it is responsible to de-sex to benefit your cat’s health, welfare and behaviour. Neutering males helps to reduce behavioural problems such as aggression, frustration and territorial marking. We normally recommend de-sexing at 6 months of age. After de-sexing, it is important for your pet to be fed less than before the operation as their metabolic rate will be lower and therefore, it will be easy for them to gain weight.
Female health benefits
De-sexing (spaying) greatly reduces the risk of mammary tumours/cancer and completely eliminates the risk of ovarian and uterine disease (infection and cancer). In addition to this, de-sexing also prevents unwanted pregnancies and persistent vocalisation during seasons, usually at night time!
Male health benefits
Desexing (castration) prevents testicular tumours/cancer as well as prostate problems.Uncastrated males can spray around the flat persistently leading to a highly unpleasant living environment.
