Given how quickly cats mature physically, cat neutering Oxford is advised for both male and female cats starting at four months of age.in compliance with the guidelines provided by Cats Protection and the RSPCA. A female cat's ovaries and uterus are removed during spaying. Castration involves the removal of a male cat's testes.

This is a frequently asked issue, and the answer is no—letting your cat have a litter has no proven health benefits; the same goes for dogs and rabbits.
Cat neuterings general anaesthesia
At Boundary Vets in Oxford, we have procedures in place to ensure your cat's safety during the cat neutering process in oxford, which will require a general anaesthetic. Throughout their operation and convalescence, your pet will be under the care of a committed Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN). There are always some risks associated with anaesthesia, but they are extremely minimal—especially with neutering, as pets are often young, in good health, and undergoing this treatment.
The age, breed, and presence of underlying medical issues in your pet can raise the risk of anaesthesia. Prior to your pet's operation, we can do a pre-anaesthetic blood test to identify any underlying illnesses. This can be discussed both when scheduling the procedure and the day of the procedure. Two different forms of pain treatment will be given to your pet along with a premedication to help them relax. You may be confident that the Boundary Vets crew will be there for your pet at every turn.
Oxfords cat neutering specialists
We will go over the permission form and the protocol upon admittance. Please be aware that the consent form needs to be signed by the registered owner (who must be above 18) or an authorised agent. Your dog, cat, or rabbit will be admitted as a "day patient," and if our team is satisfied with how well your pet has recovered, they will be released later that same day. The staff will go over all the information you require on your pet's post-operative care and pain medication during your pet's discharge appointment. Once your pet is comfortable again at home, please call us if you have any more questions. We are always available by phone for you and your pet.
Our telephone number is 01235 538721 should you need to contact us.
