How old does my dog/cat have to be to have spay/neuter surgery?

Posted on

Humane Ohio will spay/neuter kittens when they’re eight weeks old and at least two pounds, and puppies when they’re eight weeks old and 2-4 lbs. (depending on the breed). It’s a myth that you can’t spay/neuter kittens and puppies when they’re so young; they actually bounce back from spay/neuter surgery very quickly! Pediatric spay/neuter is safe and is less stressful on the animal than waiting until he’s older.
