Too small for spay?

My cat is really small, about nine ten pounds,is it safe to get her spayed?




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

I've spayed cats as small as 1 pound (when I used to do juvenile spays for the humane society.)

If your vet feels that Lluvia is healthy then she should be fine to spay!

You can also ask Dr. Marie for a second opinion on your pet's condition.
