Indications for cat neutering
If the animal is kept in a city apartment, andthere is no way to provide him with the opportunity of regular mating with cat owners to better take care of your comfort, in order to avoid possible complications.

Recommended age surgery
It is important to choose the right age forof castration, as too early surgery can lead to underdevelopment of the urethra, which develops under the influence of male sex hormones. This in turn will increase the likelihood of urinary tract diseases associated with occlusion of the urethra.
The optimal age for castration is considered to be 7 - 9months. Against a later operation is the fact that approximately 5% of cases, it can not lead to the desired results, because adult males sex hormones are produced not only the testicles, but also by the pituitary gland.
And also the fact that older cats are the possible complications associated with the release of general anesthesia, due to the severe stress of narcotic drugs on the liver and kidneys.
