The lovely Evans was so relaxed and enjoyed having a tummy scratch before his castration yesterday!
Benefits of Castration:
• Health issues. Unneutered male cats are at risk of getting and spreading infectious diseases such as FIV and FeLV from one cat to another via mating and fighting. They can also suffer more from urinary tract problems and infections.
• Unneutered male cats are likely to stray over a large area and will mark their territory with a very pungent spray (sometimes in the home). They are much more likely to fight – which can be a very noisy affair.
• They are also likely to have fighting injuries such as abscesses, and because they tend to wander over a large area they are also at greater risk of being involved in road traffic accidents.
When do we castrate?
We recommend castrating male cats at any age over 5 – 6 months – the earlier you neuter the less likely you will get behaviours such as spraying/fighting/roaming and you also lower the risk of him contracting illnesses such as FIV.
Our experiences have been excellent with all the staff and the service at this surgery. Everybody is caring and down to earth, going out of their way to accommodate yours and your pets needs.
We can’t fault them and would happily recommend Manor Farm Vets to anybody
Treatment can involve environmental management, behavioural therapy, pheromone therapy and medications
Just a reminder to everyone travelling with your pets, that the rules will be changing after Brexit
