The medical and social reasons for castrating your cat
- it reduces the number of unwanted kittens.
- reduces the distance your cat is likely to stray from home.
- reduces the incidence of catfights.
- reduces the problems of territorial marking in the house such as spraying.
All neutering operations are carried out on a day care basis so your pet will be admitted to the surgery in the morning and will be able to go home in the afternoon.
Male cats are castrated any time from 6 months of age. There are no sutures. We do ask that you ensure that your cat does not lick the wound.
If this does happen please contact the nurse who will advise you on the best prevention.
When you come to collect your cat you will be given full written instructions on his after care.
It is our policy to offer a pre-anaesthetic blood test to any animal having a general anaesthetic. This is carried out on the day of their operation and enables us to check that their liver and kidneys are in good health.
