We will be starting from the beginning in our efforts to reach the general public with our message to spay or neuter cats prior to five months of age in order to prevent unwanted litters, prevent mammary gland cancer, greatly reduce spraying and marking in male cats. We have already been reaching out to veterinarians and now wish to make this important information common knowledge. We hope to raise awareness through magazines, newspapers, the social media and anything else that would work.
It is most common for veterinarians to spay/neuter cats at or after six months of age by which time the male hormones have kicked in so they spray and mark; the female hormones often lead to mammary gland cancer and also unwanted litters of kittens. Our goal is to move the norm back by four weeks to five months, avoiding these problems. Concept approved by AVMA, AAHA, AAFP and other national vet groups, but public is not aware.
To end the overpopulation of cats and dogs nationwide through prevention of unwanted litters.
