|My vet will only do them 5-6 months old. She feels any earlier, one is taking the chance of complications, as it is still surgery, and they are still under anastesia. Granted a neuter is less intrusive than a spay, but its still a shock to their system and weakens their immune system.
My kittens got done at 5 1/2 months old. She wanted a full 2 weeks since their last show, to make sure they did not bring something home from a show, and thus, weakened their immune system, and a full 2 weeks, before their next show, so their not going into a show, not feeling their best, to make sure there is no infection, and their systems are not run down. It was a full week, before they were back to their normal run thru the house at warp speed like crazy boys, mol.
I do understand, why rescue organizations do it earlier, and not going to get into that discussion.
