Spay and Neuter: Cats

Do you have a new furry feline friend, or a cat that has been part of your life for years? Much care goes into the first few months of a kitten’s life, preparing them for a life of exploring without worrying about contracting diseases – or reproducing. Low cost spaying and neutering services provided by Affordable Animal Hospital Covina can help you regulate your cat’s behavior and protect them from other dangerous diseases in the future.

What to Expect from Spaying & Neutering Procedures

Getting your cat “fixed” involves a surgical procedure performed by our experienced veterinarian. These procedures are routine, and our facility performs countless cat spay or neuter procedures every year.

Female cats can go into heat every six months, resulting in unusual or occasionally erratic behavior. Spaying involves removing the fallopian tubes, uterus, and ovaries from a female cat through a small incision in the abdomen.

Male cats are able to reproduce as early as six months of age, which can result in aggressive tendencies or other behavior problems. Neutering surgically removes the testicles, taking away their ability to reproduce and regulating hormones.

Both are simple procedures performed in the comfort of our Covina spay and neuter clinic. The procedure is fairly quick, and your pet will likely be able to return home the same day as the procedure. Your pet will be cared for by our dedicated staff, and you will be informed of their progress after surgery.

Your Cat’s Recovery

Our veterinarian will provide instructions and tips to care for your cat after the procedure. Though recovery is fairly quick, your cat may experience some discomfort in the initial phase of healing. Our skilled veterinarian will also likely prescribe a pain medication for your cat to make them more comfortable while healing.

Your cat will typically need a few days to a week of recovery time before the incision heals, and approximately two weeks until they can resume jumping or running. During that time, you should keep your cat away from other household pets and keep them indoors as much as possible to avoid contamination, infections, or other complications. Your cat must not lick, bite, or scratch the incision as this can lead to an infection. He or she will be wearing a collar to help avoid this risk.
