A kitten should be at least eight weeks old to be spayed or neutered. Some veterinarians will neuter kittens younger than eight weeks of age, but some others do not perform this procedure until the cat is at least eight months old.
What are the risks associated with getting a cat fixed?
The risks vary depending on which part of the reproductive system is being removed (e.g., ovaries, uterus), how many times it has been done previously, and what breed of cat you have (for example: female cats who have had three litters may suffer from more problems after they stop producing eggs). The best way to find out if your pet needs to get fixed before she becomes pregnant again is by having her examined by a veterinarian. If she does need surgery she will require general anesthesia so that there are no complications during recovery; however most pets return home within 24 hours post-surgery without any complication. There are also some things you can do for your pet’s health care while she is recovering from surgery such as giving calcium supplements and making sure that her diet contains plenty of protein through canned food or wet food containing meat products like chicken.
How much does it cost? Is insurance accepted? What about reclaiming my deposit when my pet dies/sold/stolen etc.?
