Benefits and risks of spaying/neutering cats

At Dibaq Group, we know how important pets are in our lives, and this time we are going to focus on spayed/neutered cats and the importance of proper nutrition.

We’ll therefore discuss the benefits and risks of spaying and neutering and the best diet for kittens at this stage of their lives.

Benefits of spaying/neutering cats

If you have a kitten at home, you’re probably considering spaying or neutering it, if you have not already done so. At Dibaq, we want to give you some tips to help you make your decision.

First of all, let’s look at some of the advantages of this practice:

  • Spayed / Neutered cats have a longer life expectancy.
  • It guarantees birth control. Spaying / Neutering your cat is the most effective method of preventing unwanted litters.
  • It makes cohabitation easier, helping to prevent urine marking in the home and reduce aggressiveness towards cats.
  • It provides important health benefits for cats and prevents problems associated with gestation.
  • It lowers the risk of mammary and uterine problems in female kittens.

As you can see, there are obvious advantages, but what are the risks?

The risks of spaying or neutering your cat

On the other hand, there are some risks associated with spaying/neutering that should be considered:

  • Obesity: after spaying or neutering, cats are three times likelier to be overweight. This is because stayed / neutered cats have bigger appetites and tend to eat more and gain weight. This is something to watch out for.
  • Kidney stones: a sedentary, indoor lifestyle and obesity are factors contributing to the development of kidney stones.

The importance of water and nutrition

Now that you know the benefits and the risks, it’s important to point out that water and nutrition are the keys to keeping your spayed or neutered cat healthy. And don’t forget that exercise is also important to the health of your furry friend.

It’s essential to provide a proper diet and identify the nutrients that ensure all the necessary benefits. But before we discuss diet, keep in mind that you can help to prevent kidney stones by encouraging your cat to drink more water.

As for nutrition and preventing obesity, the key is to offer specific food for spayed or neutered cats that is suitable for the animal’s age.

That’s why at Dibaq Group, we offer special diets for spayed/neutered cats, such as Fitmin Purity Castrate. This product provides all the benefits that kittens need. Below you can find details on its properties and benefits.
