Castration

Animal: Cat
Breed: Moggie

Pet Symptoms: I have a 5 year old male cat that I would like to get castrated, is this possible for his age?

Our Advice: Castration can be done at any age provided he is otherwise healthy. Most vets will carry out a pre-op check to make sure he has no current illness or problems with his heart or circulation etc.

Most vets will also offer pre-op bloods, but these can add to the cost of the operation as castration is usually a comparatively cheap surgery to other routine operations.
