Neutering your cat has many benefits. The procedure, which prevents male animals from reproducing, can help your cat live a longer, healthier life. Neutering will not change your pet’s personality.

By neutering your cat, you’re reducing or eliminating his risk for prostate and testicular cancer, as well as sexually transmitted diseases (FIV and Feline Leukemia) Neutering will also reduce or eliminate undesirable and embarrassing behavior, including roaming, fighting, and spraying. In addition, neutering your cat will help control the cat overpopulation problem, keeping more animals out of shelters.

Neutering, which involves removing the testicles, is a surgical procedure and does need to be performed with the cat under anesthesia. We follow strict protocols and continually monitor your pet’s vital signs to help ensure his safety..

Because we are a cat hospital, we do support TNR protocols. TNR stands for TRAP NEUTER RELEASE. If you are feeding a stray or wild cat that you can not handle or place into a carrier please call us and we will help advise you on a safe way to trap and transport this cat to our clinic. We are well trained and accustomed to dealing with feral cats. We have protocols in place as to our procedure to minimize the stress on the cat and the transporter. Please call us and we can help prevent unwanted kittens if we all work together.

To set up an appointment to have your pet neutered or to learn more about this procedure, please call or visit our clinic. If you are struggling with the decision of whether to neuter your pet, please call us or stop by so we can discuss your concerns.
