When To Desex A Female Kitten?

When the kitten is still very young (under 5 months old) it may be best to wait until your cat becomes sexually mature. This means that he will have reached his first heat cycle, which usually occurs between 6 and 9 months of age. If you opt for early spaying or neutering, then he can become pregnant at an older age than if you wait until later in life. Alternatively, if you are thinking about using a late-term method such as PGF2-alpha injection or ovariohysterectomy , speaking with your vet should help clarify all options so that you are aware of any potential risks associated with these procedures before deciding on them for your pet.
