    Hi all

    well we got the results from Flippers vasectomy hes only be half done! They sent away the 2 tubes that they cut and kept and 1 is the tube one is muscle. So the vets have said they will re do him free of charge.

    I am not sure I understand your question, but will try and answer it. You need to ring local vets in your area and ask if they do ferret vasectomy as not all vets do. They like the ferret to be an adult (1 year old plus) and in season at the time of the operation. The cost will depend on where you live.

    Hi DK, the question asked of you re: vasectomy - sadly it relates to a cat :(

    The person wants a cat to have a vasectomy and not be castrated as per usual procedure *and* he/she doesnt even own the cat :(

    Please check out this thread for more info :)

    Just seen the thread, why do you feel its cruel to have a cat neutered? some male cats can and do live a happy life un neutered as a pet (But these cases are very few and far between) maybe his original owners are having him neutered to hopefully stop him straying away looking for girls! He is their cat and it is their choice you have no say in the matter

    also I very much doubt a vet would vasectomise a cat anyway ferrets are only done because females MUST be brought out of season or they can suffer with long term health problems, it often works out cheaper for people with a few ferrets to have a boy done, it means no babies and its natural
