How are cat's neutered?

Neutering/castration is a surgical procedure, carried out under general anaesthesia and aimed at preventing reproduction.

It is an irreversible procedure:
a neutered cat will no longer be able to have a kitten.


Castration consists of the removal of both testicles. This is carried out through an incision at the scrotum.


The operation consists of removing either the ovaries (ovariectomy) or the ovaries & uterus (ovariohysterectomy).

change in nutritional needs of neutered cats

keeping your cat healthy after neutering

Reduce calorie intake by 25-33% by reducing the amount fed or feeding a diet with lower calorie density e.g. neutered cat diet

Poor control of calorie intake may be exacerbated by diets which fail to induce satiety, particularly if highly palatable, energy dense & fed ad libitum
