5. At what age can I have my cat spayed or neutered?

   Spaying or neutering can be done any time after 4 months of age. We recommend having the procedure done BEFORE 6 months of age if possible.  Your cat is given a physical exam prior to surgery by our doctor to help determine whether your cat is healthy enough to undergo the surgical procedure. Current vaccinations are recommended at the time of surgery. Also a pre-anesthetic blood screen is recommended prior to undergoing anesthesia and surgery.


6.  What is the pre-anesthetic blood screening?

   This is a blood test that is run here in the clinic prior to surgery. It tests the basic organ fuctions and checks for anemia.  The pre-anesthetic blood screening helps us to reduce the risk of anesthesia during your cat's surgery.


7. How long do the sutures stay in after my cat's spay surgery?

   Procedures involving sutures require them to be removed in 10-14 days following the surgery.  Please call for an appointment for suture removals.
There is no charge for suture removals if the surgery was performed at the clinic.


8.  Why should I spay or neuter my cat.  He seems fine without this surgery?

    There are plenty of advantages to having you cat spayed or neutered. These advantages include decreasing the chances of breast tumors later in life, decreasing the chance of cystic ovaries and uterine infections later in life, decreasing the desire to roam the neighborhood, decreasing the incidence of prostate cancer later in life, helping prevent spraying and marking, and also decreases the surplus of unwanted kittens
