The male procedure for neutering cats are a bit different to the females for obvious reasons. However the reasons behind neutering cats, male cats especially, have different factors behind why people would want to have this procedure carried out.
The male neutering is called castration. It’s a different terminology from neutering female cats. Females are sprayed whereas the male cats are circumcised.
It’s a very straight forward procedure.
Typically you have to fast your cat overnight for the sake of general anesthetic that the veterinary surgeon will use to pacify your pet while the surgery is carried out. Water is the exception here though. He will need to drink as usual. Just his cat meat and/or biscuits you’ll need to part from him.
The surgery that is carried out will see the cats testicles removed. (or to be more polite his reproductive organs) It sounds really nasty and sore but it is a humane thing according to the humane societies information not only for the purposes of animal control but for the behavioral side of things with your pet.
Male cats in particular are very bad for marking their territory. For those that keep your pets indoors and not having the procedure done will leave all sorts of nasty odours around the home as your cat will go around marking his territory with his scent.
What’s pleasant to him isn’t pleasant on you.
Pre surgery there may be some blood work gets carried to make sure the cat neutering can be performed under the anesthetic. It’s just a precaution that some veterinary surgeons may want to carry out to make sure the cat isn’t allergic to anything and can have the surgery carried out without any hiccups mid way.
He’ll have a bit of clipping done around the scrotum area which will grow back as normal fairly quickly. The area will have an antiseptic soap or the like applied to it to minimize the risk of infection. Similar to the orange die that our own surgeons will use during surgery.
After that there’ll be a small incision made just to pull the testicles free. They’ll either get tied together or stitched and then removed. Then it’s some more of the antibiotic powder again to make sure he doesn’t contract any infections. The scrotal area will usually close naturally so there’s no stitches going to be required and there’s very little bleeding either.
All in all – the neutering cats male procedure is made as painless as possible and while some cat owners feel that it’s going to be sore on him, it’s really not. The whole procedure is over in 20 minutes or less in some occasions. The earlier the neutering cats procedure is carried out the better it will be.
There will also be an affect on how your cats appearance looks in the future as well.
If you get the cat neutering out the way before he reaches around 6 months old, it’s known to keep his little face the small and cutesy way that you got him as a kitten.
Male cats older than 6 months when they have the neutering carried out will eventually develop a more rounded face. It gives the appearance that he’s overweight.
It’s much nicer to know when you look at your pet that he’s looking in good health as well as knowing. Overweight pets that you love fill you with worry when you’re concerned their not getting enough exercise or burning off their food the way you’d expect. It’s often just the appearance the cat develops even though he could be in perfectly good health, but it’s much better to have him looking and feeling his best, so that you can relax more knowing you have helped him remain in good health.
His temperament is going to be greatly improved as well. You’ll have a cat that’s a cute and cuddly kitty for years and not displaying behavior of a hormone crazed raging bull terrier. He’ll be a lot calmer and more pleasant to be around.
