Kitten Neutering Questions

Hello everyone, and what a lovely day we're having!!

My kitten Chester is only 3 months old but I am planning ahead and would like some answers about neutering. I am definitely getting him the snip as I think it is the responsible thing to do. My questions are about the actual event. When I lived with my mum and dad we had a female dog spayed and I remember her being very disorientated and worried and I am thinking about Chester now as I don't want him in lots of pain. I know he's a boy so the operation isn't as bad because there is a smaller incision. Also how long does it generally take? How long does it take for the cat to get back to their normal selves?

I hope people don't mind but is it ok to ask how much you paid to have your boy neutered?

I just want to prepare for him. Thank you! xxx

Wasn't groggy or anything and healed very quickly. You'd nor even know he'd had it done

Re: Kitten Neutering Questions

Costs of neutering vary from surgery to surgery and town to town.
The cost of Meeko's neutering was I think 65 but I'm sure if I had looked around at other vets I could have found it cheaper.
He was 5 and a half months old when he was done but some vets will do it earlier some insist on a 6 month minimum.As for recovery,he was neither up nor down.He came back from the vets ,out of the carrier had a quick visit to the litter tray,screamed for food and stuffed his face.Next was a quick rummage in the underwear department,decided all was fine and went off to batter hell out of his toys.After around 2/3 hours of manic playtime he slept through till morning and that was it

Re: Kitten Neutering Questions

I had both my girl and bot done at 6 months (nearly 2 months ago) and they were both perfectly fine. She was a bit slower and careful about what she was doing than him but both were eating stright away and playing, maybe not as rough as usual though.

He will be fine, I promise x

I've never had a boy that hasn't recovered completely by the time we got home. My vet charges 35, in Suffolk.
