I have to say, while our monthly clinic vet does pediatric spay/ neuter, I wouldn't trust every one to do it, and I understand the term chop shops. Compared with other local clinics, I think we do batter aftercare for cats in recovery than any of the others and that's so important. Can't

I have all my kittens spayed/neutered when they are 2-3 pounds feral or not. Normally they are about 10-12 weeks old at this time. In male kittens if the testicles are showing this is great they can be done! So this would be a good time to do it. TAZZY'S ANIMAL TRANSPORTS/SIAMESE COLLIE
