I had a five month old male kitten neutered with laser surgery, and a five month old female kitten spayed using laparoscopic surgery. I highly recommend laser surgery. It was minimally invasive with no stitches for the male. It was a very quick recovery and once we got him home, and he didn’t even need the pain meds we had purchased. He was fine and playing the next day even though he was supposed to rest. Laser surgery is less invasive and caused less trauma to my pet’s tissue.
