We will take them off after the procedure and provide some topical antibiotic cream which will aid in healing.

How long will it take for my cat to recover?

Your cat should be back to normal within 4-7 days and will be able to go back home after the neutering procedure. If your cat is neutered under anaesthetic then they may not be able to go home until after the anaesthetic wears off.

After three weeks you can call the surgery if there is any need to see your cat again, however this is rare.

Is there a possibility of any adverse reactions to my cat neutering?
