Spaying & Neutering Your Cat is important for reasons you may not know.
Unspayed females have a much higher risk of developing breast cancer later in life, which carries a very poor prognosis once diagnosed. In addition, they are susceptible to severe uterine infections which can be fatal if not caught early, and for which an emergency operation is usually required.
Male cats who are not neutered will tend to be overzealous when marking their territories with urine–urine which is stronger in scent. In addition, unneutered males are prone to testicular cancer, especially if their testicles do not descend properly, as well as prostatic and kidney disease.
At Aristokatz, we treat each patient that presents for any surgery as an individual and are very cognizant to each cat’s specific anesthetic needs as well as pain management.
Thank you for entrusting us with their care!
