Is the Veterinarian that refuses to spay a pregnant cat, even if only 1 week pregnant, going to take and keep the kittens your cat may birth? Just curious Don't use the vet with the bad reviews. Although a spay is a routine procedure, it is still a serious surgery that can have serious life-threatening consequences if not done properly or with aseptic sterile measures in place. It is comparable to an ovarian hysterectomy in people. There have to be more than just two veterinarians in your area, I would think.
