Cat in a Green Vest


At Vet At Your Door, we are committed to the well-being of your cat throughout the surgical process. While we do not conduct surgeries ourselves, our partnerships with esteemed veterinary practices ensure high-quality surgical care without an exam fee. Additionally, we provide vital support in both pre-operative and post-operative phases, offering services like pre-operative lab tests, pain management, and cold laser therapy to aid in recovery.

Below are some commonly asked questions we get about cat surgery. 

What are common types of cat surgeries?

Elective surgeries like spaying and neutering, non-elective surgeries for conditions like broken bones, and emergency surgeries for life-threatening situations are common​​​​.

How can Vet At Your Door help with pre-operative preparations?

We can conduct necessary pre-operative lab tests to assess your cat's health, need, and readiness for surgery.

Should my cat be constipated after surgery?

Constipation post-surgery is common due to medications and decreased activity. It's important to monitor your cat's bowel movements and consult your vet if issues persist​​.


Is urinary incontinence normal after surgery?

Cats should urinate normally after surgery. If you notice any incontinence, it's essential to consult your vet as it could indicate discomfort or other issues​​.


What should I do if my cat isn't using the litter box post-surgery?

Post-surgery disorientation or changes in litter type may cause this. Ensure easy litter box access and discuss with your vet if the problem continues​​.

How can I tell if my cat is in pain after surgery?

Cats often hide pain, so look for behavior changes like less activity or hiding. Vet At Your Door can provide pain management solutions to ensure your cat's comfort​​.


What if my cat is not eating after surgery?

A decreased appetite can be normal due to medications or discomfort. We can offer advice on feeding and diet post-surgery to encourage eating​​.


What do I do if my cat’s stitches are coming loose?

Limit your cat's activities and check the stitches regularly. If they are coming loose, contact your veterinarian immediately​​.

Is it harmful for my cat to lick the surgery site?

Yes, licking can cause infections and disturb the healing process. A cone or protective clothing might be necessary to prevent this​​.

Can Vet At Your Door assist with post-operative care?

Absolutely, we provide comprehensive post-operative care including cold laser therapy for pain and inflammation, as well as regular rechecks to monitor healing.
