Cat Neutering and Spaying

Neutering or spaying is the surgical removal of specific reproductive organs in your feline. Having your cat spayed or neutered is an important consideration for their long-term health, can positively change a cat’s behaviour and prevent reproduction, therefore helping to control overpopulation. At the Airdrie Animal Health Centre, you can be sure your cat is in great hands with our experienced veterinary surgeons.

What are the benefits of spaying or neutering a cat?


Spaying or neutering your cat can help prevent certain health or behavioural issues from occurring. Spaying female cats before their first heat cycle can dramatically reduce their chances of breast or mammary cancers. Spaying will also eliminate the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancers and diseases. Neutering your male tomcat will prevent testicular cancers and diminish the likelihood of prostatic cancers. Also, with tomcats, neutering them can help towards preventing dominant or aggressive behaviour as well as decrease the likelihood of urine spraying around the house. Spaying or neutering your cat is also the best way of preventing the overpopulation of animals.

When should I neuter/spay my cat?


Spaying or neutering your cat can be done as early as 4 to 6 months of age. If your cat has passed this age range and they have matured, spaying or neutering can always still be done to prevent your feline from reproducing, however, sometimes spaying or neutering a mature or obese cat can be a more complicated surgery. If you have questions about having your cat spayed or neutered, please contact the staff at Airdrie Animal Health Centre.

Overheating Dogs and What to Do About It

It’s that time of year again, where the sun is out and the temperature is hot. It’s tempting to spend all your free time outside soaking in that Vitamin D, and of course bringing along your favourite furry friend, but be cautious; warm temperatures can mean overheating and even possible heat stroke for your dog.
