Surgery for Cats
When it comes to surgery for your cat, you don't want to trust just anyone with your pet. At Nashville Cat Clinic, we specialize in treating felines. Our veterinary team has the experience and knowledge specific to cat diseases and conditions that require an operation. If you have had a veterinarian recommend an operation for your cat, bring your pet to us.
Spay and Neuter
The most common type of surgical procedure for most pets is "fixing" the animal by either spaying a female or neutering a male. These surgical options prevent many problems caused by unchecked reproduction. Female cats will reduce their risk of mammary tumors if they are spayed. Having this procedure done early can prevent behavior problems and avoid unexpected litters. Did you know that felines as young as six months can have a litter? Talk to our veterinarians about the perfect age to spay or neuter your kitten.
Does My Cat Really Need Surgery?
If you have a veterinarian recommend surgery for your feline friend, it's in your cat's best interest. In many cases, you may have already tried medication, or the vet has decided that such products would not suffice for your cat's condition.
Having an operation may save your cat's life or prevent serious pain. In instances of dental problems, cats cannot get fillings for their teeth as people do. Instead, dental cleanings and extractions require anesthesia for your cat.
Is the Procedure Safe?
We will always conduct a series of tests on your cat's blood and vital signs to ensure it's healthy enough for any anesthesia used and the procedure itself. After the operation, your feline friend will likely need confinement to keep from hurting itself or other cats. Our staff will give you post-op instructions for how you can keep your cat comfortable and help it to heal at home. You will also need to bring it back for a follow-up appointment so we can see how well the procedure worked. For questions, just ask a member of our veterinary staff.
