What is The best Age to Spay or Neuter a Kitten?
At St. Louis Cat clinic, we usually neuter and spay kittens at 3-4 months of age. They need to be 2 pounds or greater. There is no medical reason to wait until a kitten is older.
- There is no truth to the myth that early neutering leaves a male cat with a more narrow urethra and a greater chance of a urinary obstruction.
- Female kittens do not need to go into heat once before spaying.
- Kittens do not become nicer cats if they have a litter of kittens before they are spayed
