Neutering cats

Cat Spay

Ovaro-hysterectomy is the medical term for spaying or neutering female cats. The procedure consists of the surgical removal of the ovaries and the uterus. Surgery can be performed at any age but is best done at about 6 months of age before the cat comes into season for the first time.
