Benefits of Cat Sterilisation​

Cat sterilisation, commonly referred to as neutering (in males) and spaying (in females), is a surgical procedure that prevents cats from reproducing. In Singapore, it is highly encouraged as part of responsible pet ownership.

Benefits of Cat Sterilisation​

Sterilisation — much like cat dental cleaning — also offers several health and behavioural benefits:

  • Reduces Risk of Certain Cancers: Spaying female cats helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumours, which are often malignant. Neutering male cats can prevent testicular cancer.
  • Decreases the Risk of Feline HIV and Leukaemia: These diseases are commonly spread among cats through fighting, which is often related to mating behaviour. Sterilised cats are less likely to roam and get into fights.
  • Longer and Healthier Lives: Studies have shown that sterilised cats generally live longer and healthier lives. They are less likely to roam far from home, reducing the risk of accidents or injuries.
  • Reduces Aggression and Roaming: Male cats are less likely to display territorial aggression and roam far from home post-sterilisation, decreasing their risk of injury.
  • Lowers Urine Marking and Spraying: Sterilised cats are less likely to mark territory with strong-smelling urine.
  • Decreases Noisy Mating Behaviours: Spaying a female cat also eliminates her heat cycles, which can prevent yowling and other disruptive behaviours.

On the day of surgery, bring your cat to the clinic at the appointed time. Our team will guide you through the admission process. Your cat will then be prepared for surgery, and you will be kept informed throughout the process.
