Cat Neutering and Spaying

Spaying and neutering are important procedures that will bring your cat many benefits, throughout his or her life. Here at Mill Creek, we do an ovariohysterectomy (removal of the uterus and both ovaries), commonly called spaying and for males, it is a castration (removal of both testes), commonly called neutering.
