The best time for sterilization
In theory, the sterilization of cats is as early as possible. Sterilization before estrus can prevent the kitten from having sexual impulses and estrus after growing up. There are many pet doctors in the United States who recommend sterilization when the cat is 2 months old. However, when the domestic cat is 2 months old, the state of health is not stable, and there are often diseases like respiratory tract infection, mold, and ear mites.
The most scientific and reasonable recommended sterilization time is between 6 months and 1 year old. At this time, the cat is generally mature, and the sterilization can be performed as long as the cat is healthy. The operation time is generally two seasons in spring and autumn, because the weather is cool, it is convenient to take care of the cat.
There are many owners who have too many concerns about sterilization and have been considering delays. If the cat's various reproductive system diseases break out and then sterilize, the risk of surgery will increase greatly, and the older the cat, the worse the physical recovery, the doctors are not willing to take risks to perform surgery for older cats.
