Spokane cat lovers attest that neutering a male cat is a first-rate step in helping your little guy to grow into a loving, made to order household inhabitant. The chief reason to neuter a male cat is to reduce the occurrence of offensive behaviors that are typical in the feline world but objectionable in the human world.
The three most common unpleasant behavior problems are roaming, fighting and urine marking. Over 90% will reduce roaming and fighting this behavior with neutering and about .60% trims down this behavior right away. Urine marking will also be reduces 90% with neutering and around 89% will lesson this behavior problem immediately.
There is minimal recovery with this process. Most veterinarian clinics discharge kittens the same day as surgery. There should be no swelling or bleeding. It is wise not to bathe the kitten until the incisions have healed, generally 10-14 days following the time of surgery.
Another rationale to neuter a male cat has to do with the physical appearance. A cat neutered before puberty, around six months of age, don’t cultivate secondary sex characteristic such as a more muscular body, shields around the face and spines on the penis.
The feline neuter is one of the most basic surgical procedures performed in veterinary medicine. The cat is fasted overnight so that anesthesia is carried out on an empty stomach. The scrotum is opened with a tiny incision and the testicles are brought out. The cords are pulled free and tied to each other or a minute suture is applied to tie the cords and the testicle is cut free. The skin incision on the scrotum is diminutive enough so as not to necessitate stitches of any kind.
