Desexing your cat is part of being a responsible pet owner. Not only will you be reducing the chance of an unwanted litter and cats living on the streets, desexing is also beneficial for your cat’s health! Desexing can improve your cat’s temperament by reducing problematic behaviours such as roaming, aggression, mating behaviour, or heat cycles.
Did you know, cats can get pregnant as teenagers? That’s before 6 months of age when they’re still new to this world themselves!
New research recommends desexing cats before puberty which can be as early as 16 weeks. This prevents any chance of unwanted litters, and comes with no increased risk for short term or long term health effects.
