Cat Neutering and Spaying

Surgical sterilization is part of being a responsible cat owner. By ensuring your cat is spayed or neutered, you are helping to control the feline population. Spays and neuters are routine procedures that are typically done in the first year of your cat’s life. These procedures are safe, and recovery time is quick.

What is spaying and neutering?


A spay is a surgical procedure performed on a female cat. During the procedure, the uterus and ovaries are removed. A neuter is a surgical procedure performed on a male cat. During the procedure, the testicles are removed.

When should I neuter/spay my cat?


We recommend that all cats are spayed or neutered by the age of 6 months.

What is the procedure to spay/neuter a cat?


A spay procedure is done under a general anesthetic for her safety and comfort. During a spay, your cat’s ovaries and uterus are surgically removed. We administer a fast-acting pain medication during the procedure to control any discomfort. Your cat is closely monitored during and after her spay by a veterinarian or a registered veterinary technician. A neuter is a routine surgical procedure, where the testicles of a male cat are safely removed via an incision in the scrotum. The procedure is done under a deep sedation. A fast acting pain medication is administered during the procedure to control any discomfort. Your cat will be closely monitored during and after the procedure by a veterinarian or registered veterinary technician.

Dear Clients,

Thank you for choosing Morinville Veterinary Clinic for your pets' veterinary needs. As we continue to adjust to the "new normal," we have implemented new protocols to keep you and our team safe.

It is still preferred that you stay in your vehicle while we bring your pet in for their appointment. However, as of Monday, July 21, 2020, we will be allowing one client to accompany their pet during their visit.

Along with wearing a face mask and using hand sanitizer, any client wishing to be present during an exam will need to record your name, phone number and email address for contact tracing purposes, in compliance with Alberta Health requirements.

Should you choose to come in with your pet, we kindly ask that you comply with the following protocols:

  • Our doors will remain locked. Please call us at 780.939.3133 upon your arrival.
  • Physical distance with staff and other clients while inside the building.
  • Face coverings must be worn to enter the clinic.
  • Use hand washing station upon entry.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
  • Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
  • If you wish to wait in your vehicle during the appointment, when you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
  • ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE

    If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
