When should I get my kitten spayed or neutered? - Prestige Animal Hospital

Generally we say between four to six months is a good time for a kitten - male or female - to get spayed or neutered. We tend to wait until six months in females, but males can be done as early as four months of age. One quick tip I want to give you guys as far as kitten care. The first thing we do is when we get the kittens and bring them home, we get a carrier. All cats should be brought to the veterinary clinic in a carrier because they can get scared and can jump and run away. What I recommend to people is don't put them in the carrier and bring them directly to the vet and then take them home, and that's the only time you use the carrier. Because they will hate going in the carrier and you will be fighting them the rest of their life to go in the carrier. So, what I recommend to people is when you get a kitten, put them in the carrier, give them food that they really want, leave the door open and let them go in and out, make it a happy place. Put them in, close it, walk around the house, walk outside and back in. Do that couple of times a week. That way when they're going in the carrier, they don't associate it with just going to the vet, getting shots and getting looked at, and your life as a pet owner will be much more pleasant...instead of having to come in with scratches on your arms for trying to squeeze them into that cat carrier.

We generally recommend having kittens spayed and neutered by six months. We don't want them going into heat or starting to develop roaming behaviors. Six months is a great time to spay and neuter kittens if they haven't already had that done at the shelter.

We generally recommend that around five to six months old for our females. Most people want to spay them before they have their heat cycles because that can be somewhat annoying to go through. And then for our males, if they are indoors, they can tend to mark their territory or spray. And so that's a big thing that we want to help prevent that behavior with neutering.
