What is Cat Spaying or Dog Spaying?
Spaying removes the ability of a female to have young. Spaying your dog or cat is a surgical operation that removes both the ovaries and the uterus through an incision in the abdomen. Because the ovaries produce most of the estrogen in a female’s body, the pet no longer has a surge of estrogen, a heat cycle, bleeding from the vulva, or the tendency to attract males. The procedure for females is called a spay surgery or ovariohysterectomy

Benefits of cat and dog spaying
Spaying is the most common surgery for female pets because it has so many benefits for the pet and the family. Spaying:

  • prevents estrus cycles and vaginal bleeding,
  • prevents the birth of unwanted puppies and kittens,
  • prevents infection in the uterus (pyometra),
  • lessens mammary cancer, and
  • lessens cat yowling.


Best age to spay your cat or dog

Spaying is done at all ages. At some humane facilities and animal shelters, spaying is being done when pets are 6 to 8 weeks old so that no adopted pets will have unwanted litters. Pets spayed by the family veterinarian are traditionally scheduled for surgery between 5 and 10 months of age.

When scheduling surgery for a pet that has just had a litter, it is best to wait about two months after delivery so that the young are weaned, the mother has quit nursing, and the uterus has
returned to its normal size.
