As the campaign name suggests, it is Feline Fix BY Five! Whenever it happens; as long as it happens
before five months of age. While many rescue organizations have embraced pediatric sterilization. many
private practice veterinarians have not. Too many people still believe the old myths, and support the
outdated standard of waiting until at least SIX months or worse—after they’ve had a litter of kittens. Our
understanding about animal health and science has changed—and our message should too.
We want the public to hear resounding agreement throughout the veterinary community. Wether they
are fixed at two pounds, three months, or 16 weeks — every cat should be fixed by five months
