  • Cat Neutering Oxford | Boundary Vets

RSPCA and Cats Protection guidelines state that cats should be neutered by the time they are four months old due to their rapid reproductive development. A female cat's ovaries and uterus are removed during spaying. Castration involves the removal of a male cat's testes.

Should I let my cat have one litter before spaying her?

It's a frequently asked issue, but there are no established health advantages to allowing your cat to have litter; the same goes for dogs and rabbits.

General anaesthesia

For the neutering surgery, your pet needs to be given a general anaesthesia; at Boundary Vets, we have safety precautions in place to make sure they are safe throughout. Throughout the procedure and the healing period, your pet will be closely observed by a committed Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN). All anaesthetic carries some danger, but it's quite small—especially for neutering, as pets are usually young, in good health, and undergoing this treatment.

Age, breed, and the presence of underlying medical issues in your pet can raise the risk of anaesthesia. In order to identify any underlying ailments, we can do a pre-anaesthetic blood test before to your pet's operation. This can be discussed both when scheduling the procedure and the day of the procedure. In addition to two different forms of pain management, your pet will receive a premedication to help them relax. You may be confident that your pet will have the support of the Boundary Vets staff at every turn.

Your pet will stay the day with us

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. When our team is satisfied with your cat's recovery, they will admit them as "day patients" and release them 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. Please call us at 01235 538721 if you have any more queries after getting your pet settled back at home. We are always available to you and your pet.
