from the Latin neuter (of neither sex), is the removal of an animal’s reproductive organ, either all of it or a considerably large part. “Neutering” is often used incorrectly to refer only to male animals, but the term actually applies to both sexes. The male-specific term is castration, while spaying is usually reserved for female animals. Modern veterinary practice tends to use the term de-sexing. Many countries require that all adopted cats and dogs be sterilized before going to their new homes.

dari bahasa Latin neuter (tidak berjenis kelamin), adalah pembuangan organ reproduksi hewan, baik semua atau sebagian. “Neutering” sering digunakan secara salah merujuk hanya pada hewan jantan, tetapi istilah ini berlaku untuk kedua jenis kelamin. Istilah untuk hewan jantan adalah pengebirian, sementara istilah spaying biasanya digunakan untuk hewan betina. Praktik veteriner modern saat ini cenderung menggunakan istilah de-sexing. Banyak negara mengharuskan semua kucing dan anjing yang diadopsi harus disterilkan terlebih dahulu.
