Castration Surgery for Cats
Castrating your male cat is the best way to decrease urine marking, territorial aggression, dramatically decreasing unwanted pets, stop roaming, and overall will afford a more loveable, domesticated pet.
Before your cat can be admitted into our hospital, several wellness aspects must be ensured. We require all cats be current on vaccinations administered by a licensed veterinarian for Rabies, Distemper, and have a negative Fecal Exam performed in the past 12 months. A Physical Exam will be performed prior to surgery for new clients and their pets. We require Presurgical Blood Screening (INCLUDED in the Price) on all anesthesia patients to ensure proper functioning of Liver, Kidney, Protein, and Blood Sugar Values in addition to checking for Anemia and Platelets (clotting).
Having confidence and knowledge in all of the above allows our Doctors to ensure a safer anesthesia procedure and can affect the type or amount of anesthesia used.
After your cat is examined and the pre-surgical blood profile reviewed and evaluated, he will receive an Inhalation anesthesia allowing him to experience a comfortable surgery, and a quick easy recovery.
Castrating your cat involves removal of both testicles through a small skin incision requiring no stitches. Your pet is placed under general anesthesia and is monitored by one of our technicians for vital signs. Recovery occurs in a well supervised area and all manner is used to ensure a comfortable recovery.
We feel the above will help you as a pet owner understand the different aspects in what is involved in neutering your cat. Even though considered routine and offered at highly discounted rates, many of the items we require for safety and comfort are not included in many low cost services, or are considered optional and are introduced as additional expenses. Neutering your cat is a surgical procedure requiring skill, involves anesthesia – which has obvious inherent risks including death and during recovery – pain, which needs to be managed after the surgery is complete. We feel what we have outlined offers the best protection and comfort from the above parameters at a reasonable fee.
