Special Instructions

Please watch the toes for any signs of swelling, redness or discharge. You may notice that your cat is a little uncomfortable for a day or two. After that amount of time, it should walk and behave normally. Keep your cat from jumping as much as possible. Please use shredded paper in your cat’s litter box for the next 10-14 days. If you have any questions or problems please feel free to call. Watch the neuter incision daily for signs of pain, heat, swelling, redness, or discharge.

General Information

Your cat has just been confined in our hospital and has received the best care we are capable of giving. He may not have eaten or drank as he would at home and, therefore, may seem to be overly hungry and thirsty. Do not overfeed or give excessive amounts of water as this may cause vomiting.

YOUR PET HAS UNDERGONE SURGERY. Do not allow excessive playing, jumping, or running as this may cause damage to the incision and delay the normal healing process. If you observe any drainage from the incision, please call the clinic immediately for advice on further care.

Please read and understand the instructions completely. If you have any questions about these instructions, medications or the care of your companion PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO ASK!
