Cat Spaying and Neutering at Maple Grove Pet Hospital

Ensuring a Healthier, Happier Future for Your Cat

At Maple Grove Pet Hospital, we prioritize the health and well-being of your feline companions. One essential aspect of responsible pet ownership is spaying (for females) and neutering (for males) your cat. These procedures not only benefit your cat’s individual health but also play a crucial role in addressing broader issues, such as overpopulation, unwanted euthanasia, and the prevention of certain feline cancers.

When to Consider Spaying or Neutering Your Cat

Your kitten can be spayed or neutered as early as 6 months of age. These procedures are recommended for both kittens and adult cats, and here’s why:

Preventing Overpopulation: Every year, countless cats end up homeless or in shelters due to overpopulation. Spaying and neutering your cat helps control the feline population by reducing the number of unwanted kittens.

Unwanted Euthanasia: Overcrowded shelters often result in the euthanasia of healthy cats due to limited resources and space. By spaying or neutering your cat, you contribute to reducing the chances of unwanted euthanasia.

Protection Against Certain Cancers: Spaying a female cat eliminates the risk of ovarian, breast and uterine cancers, while neutering a male cat reduces the risk of testicular cancer. These procedures can significantly increase your cat’s chances of living a long and healthy life.

The Process at Maple Grove Pet Hospital

When you choose to have your cat spayed or neutered at Maple Grove Pet Hospital, rest assured that their health and comfort are our top priorities:

  • Pre-Surgical Evaluation: Before the procedure, we ensure that your cat is current on their annual exam, vaccinations, and testing for parasites. This ensures that your cat is in optimal health for the surgery.
  • Lab Work: Prior to anesthesia, we perform comprehensive lab work to assess your cat’s overall health and identify any potential issues.
  • Microchipping: We recommend considering microchipping your cat, especially if they have outdoor access. Microchipping provides a permanent form of identification, increasing the chances of a safe return if your cat ever gets lost.

A Responsible Choice

Spaying and neutering your cat is a responsible choice that not only benefits their health but also contributes to a healthier feline community. We are committed to providing safe and compassionate care for your cat during these procedures.
