Hello. My name is Carole Wilbourn. I'm the cat therapist here in New York City. This clip is going to be about how to neuter a cat. Well, a male cat is neutered. That's done by making an incision into the scrotum and removing the testicles, and then tying off ligaments. However, a female cat is spayed. This is major surgery. When a cat is spayed, first of course, the cat is put under anesthesia. And the procedure consists of removing the ovaries and the uterus. Again, it's major surgery, so the female cat usually spends at least one overnight with the veterinarian. When the female is released, she may have sutures that will have to be removed within ten days, or they may be dissolving sutures. So at 10 days or so, you would take your cat back for a check up. So, that's the story. Once again, this is Carole Wilbourn, the cat therapist in New York City.
