Which is better: to sterilize or neuter a female cat?
Can there be complications during the “operation”?
Hi Amanda, thank you for the question!
First the negative: There is always a risk with the anesthesia, but it is so minimal today that you do not count on it.
And then to benefits Sterilization: The female can not get kittens
Castration: The female can not get kittens – she does not come into heat, which in the long run is very frustrating if she does not mate – she does not attract cocks, so you avoid cat music – the female is not exposed to such a high risk of infection with FAIDS, leukosis etc. – she stays more at home – often she will be more affectionate playful and mischievous – she is not exposed to the risk of cancer, uterine inflammation, etc., that birth control pills carry.
As you can see there are many benefits to castration but only one by sterilization, therefore I would recommend that you castrate.
