Feline Neutering

Feline neutering is routinely performed at around 6 months of age, which is generally when your pet is becoming sexually mature.

We recommend neutering all male pets. The benefits to your pet’s health, behavior and helping to reduce the pet overpopulation crisis makes this decision easier ~ continue reading… 

Feline neuters are performed under anesthesia. While under anesthetic, a Registered Veterinary Technician will be monitoring vital signs such as blood pressure, heart rate, and oxygenation. At KBVH, we like to ensure that all necessary precautions are taken before any pet is about to go under general anesthesia. For this reason, we recommend patients have pre-operative blood work.

If your pet is not already micro-chipped, this would be a good time to do this.

 Once surgery is complete, your pet will recover in hospital, where he will be monitored until pick up, usually sometime that same evening.
We will send him home with post-operative pain medication, an head collar and an RVT will discuss post-operative care at the time of discharge.

 

 

Please feel free to book an appointment with an RVT who will provide you with an estimate, perform the preoperative bloodwork and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
