Kittens can be fixed at any age, but it is best to wait until they are between 12 and 16 weeks old. This is when the surgery will leave the kitten in good condition and his testicles haven’t started producing testosterone. The younger a cat is fixed, the less likely he will develop cancer later in life. It also gives you time to train him properly before going ahead with the surgery.
The average cost for this procedure ranges from £60-£120 which includes anaesthetic fees if applicable plus additional costs associated with recovery such as antibiotics or painkillers. At least two weeks should be given to recuperate after neutering so make sure your vet has pre-booked an appointment for you once all paperwork has been completed – you won’t want to miss out!
