The surgical removal of one or both testicles. In cats, this is considered a minor surgery. Unlike the other neuter surgeries, during the cat neuter, the patient does not have an I.V. cathetar placed, nor does he receive general anesthesia. Instead, the patient receives an intramuscular injection of a heavy sedative. The procedure is done quickly and the patient is returned to his supervised cage for recovery. There are no sutures or closure involved.
The recovery period is usually only a few days and we there are no restrictions on excerise post-neutering. Immediately following surgery, the patient may feel slightly drowsy but most likely not.
