Cat Neutering and Spaying

Spaying or neutering your dog is a very common procedure to help reduce pet overpopulation, prevent certain diseases that can develop from them keeping their sex organs and can aid in controlling certain behaviour problems. As part of an overall health program, we will discuss with you the right time to spay/neuter your pet as well as the further benefits and risks that are involved.

What is spaying or neutering?


Spaying or neutering removes the sex organs that are in a large part responsible for hormone levels in your pet. This can help control numerous behaviour problems. Additionally, their metabolism will drop after the surgery, so it is important to reduce their feeding amount to avoid gaining weight.

When should I neuter/spay my cat?


The age at which we recommend your cat should be spayed or neutered is 6 months of age at the earliest. Doing the procedure early has a higher risk for developmental bone problems.

What is the procedure to spay/neuter a cat?


Your cat will need to fast overnight and brought to the clinic at 8 am on the scheduled day of surgery. Males will have a small incision made in the scrotum and are typically sent home the same day. Females will have an open abdominal incision and typically are kept overnight at the hospital.

Dear Clients,

With the recent increase of COVID-19 cases in our region, we are temporarily moving back to curbside service. Effective Tuesday, December 14th we are not allowing clients in exam rooms with their pets. Here is what you can expect:

  • Come in to let us know that you're here for your appointment. 2 clients will be allowed at a time in our reception area for food and med pick up and to inform us that they are here for their appointment.
  • Please wait in your car after letting us know you've arrived. Once you have notified us that you are here for your appointment we ask that you wait in your car and we will come out and collect your furry family member for their appointment.
  • The doctor will call once the appointment is done and you can then come back to the reception desk to take care of the invoice and collect your furry family member.
  • Face masks are required when interacting with our team and entering the building. Please sanitze your hands if you come inside.
  • Food and medication pick-ups inside. If there are more than 2 people in our waiting area, we ask that you wait outside until there is sufficient space.
  • Washrooms will be closed to the public until further notice.
  • These measures are temporary and we will reassess as time goes on. Please keep a lookout for any further updates from our team. Together, we can all help in stopping the spread of COVID-19. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call us at (613) 542-7337.
