Valley Veterinary Care recommends that all non-breeding female cats be spayed before the age of 2 and ½. In this procedure, the ovaries and uterus are removed to sterilize a female cat and there are several health benefits associated with spaying your cat before the age of 2 and ½:
The risk of developing breast cancer is reduced to 0.5% by spaying before 2 years of age.
Elimination of the risk of ovarian and uterine cancer
Hormonal changes of heat cycles may interfere with diabetes and epilepsy treatments
Prevention of unplanned pregnancies
Elimination of unsociable behavior
Elimination of heat cycles every 2-3 weeks
