    Hiya

    I was at the vets yesterday with Jinxy, and i asked the vet about getting him netured, she checked him, and said he is not ready yet (but it was the same vet we seen last time, and she says he is a big boy now! in terms of build i am guessing lol! :D always nice to hear he is doing well though)

    We were told it is £54 for him getting neutered.

    Does it cost more for a female to get spayed?


    Thanks.

    It does.

    Usually the Cats Protection will help out with vouchers, even if you are working and not on a low income. A very nice Lady from the Staffordshire branch was very kind and sent vouchers direct to our vets so our cats could be spayed/neutered we paid around £6 towards the cost of each cat.

    Most vets accept the vouchers so it may be worth getting in touch with your local branch and making an enquiry, as Tesco says every little helps.

    Don't know if she was supposed to do it for us but was very kind and did :D

    Can't remember how much it cost to have Piglet done...so long ago!

    He was 5 months at the time.

    I believe it's cheaper to neuter the males though.

    Glad he is all sorted with jabs now...xx :)

    Hey Jinxy, im not to sure on the actual cost of the nueter/spaying but i have done a lil looking into as soon enought i'll have to get my 2 done when there old enough!!! lol.
    It's defo more expensive to do the girls... i dont think its by to much, but its because the female's operation is abit more complicated!!!! xx

    Hiya, i thought that with it being a more complicated op, it might have been more expensive.

    Unfortunately the cat were going to be getting (was free from a neighbour) ended up going to another person, she was not spayed.
    Just need to wait on Jinxy getting to the stage when he needs neutered, i am quite worried about him getting it done, but i know it is the right thing to do.
    Thanks :)

    Hope your all having a lovely weekend x

    yeh its more expensive to have a girl done here compared to a boy

    my two boys got done last year when they were about 5 1/2 months old, i have just got a new kitten today who we believe to be a girl and she will be done as soon as she is old enough :) but right now she is ruling the roost over the 2 boys :D
