Visit Our Cat Spay and Neuter Clinic and Help Promote Healthier Lives
Sykesville Veterinary Clinic has a committed and friendly staff that strive to provide you with all the necessary resources and information to care for your cat. We are also strong advocates for the importance of spaying and neutering your cat, which is why we not only offer these services but are here to answer any questions you may have.
As a cat spay and neuter clinic we remove their ability to breed while also helping to promote a healthier and longer life for them. Spaying or neutering your cat should be done at a specific age (if possible) and has a handful of important health benefits, some of which we will go over below.
When to Cat Spay or Neuter at a Clinic
Our staff of professionals recommends that you should get your kitten spayed as young as eight weeks old. It is possible to do this procedure after this time frame has passed, but this is something that should be discussed with your veterinarian in order to make the best decision for you and your feline companion.
After the procedure has been performed, you will receive a set of care instructions and information from your vet regarding your cat’s recovery and medication to help with the pain. In some cases, a cone may need to be given in order to prevent licking and scratching of the wound.
The Health Benefits of Spaying and Neutering at Our Clinic
Female cats should be spayed in order to decrease the chances of your cat developing breast cancer. Spaying also works to eliminate the chances of your female cat developing ovarian or uterine cancer. Male cats should be neutered in order to prevent the chances of them getting testicular cancer. Neutering will also help reduce the risk of injury and transmission of disease, as unaltered male cats tend to roam and get into fights with other cats.
We proudly accept SNAP certificates, which are awarded to low income pet owners to assist with the cost of spaying and neutering. The SNAP assistant is made possible through the time and donations of individuals and businesses. In order to determine whether or not you qualify, be sure to ask one of our staff members for the correct form to fill out.
Sykesville Veterinary Clinic also realizes the importance of the significant number of animals looking for their forever homes. Because of this, we are giving a discount to individuals who adopt pets from our local shelter, The Baltimore Humane Society.
