Cat Recently Neutered- Urine Still Smells

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I recently adopted a 9 month old stray cat from animal control. He was just neutered 7 days ago and I'm wondering if I can expect the the smell of his urine to tone down at all....and how long before that happens? Right now the smell is incredibly strong. He's been checked out by a vet and was given a clean bill of health. I've been feeding him Royal Canin dry food and he's drinking plenty of water.

I can't remember exactly how long, but I think within another week or so you should start to notice the difference, (or should I say not notice it?)

It can take as much as a month, but it will probably be much less noticable within the next couple of weeks. I hear ya on the stink ... intact male cat spray is simply disgusting. *ack*

Thanks for the replies! Well its been another week and his urine still reeks.. I'm doing my best to wait it out. Hopefully it will improve soon.

The Royal Canin is a good food, but you might want to try adding a wet food at least once a day for a little extra hydrating. I'm just guessing, but that may help tone down the urine some.

I know how you feel ecause the last feral I had fixed had to spend about a month in the house in the cat playpen waiting to be fixed and he was one powerful smelling tomcat.

One of the things I ended up doing was getting a City Pet Ionizer to help keep the odor down.

They aren't expensive and I keep the unit on top of the cat playpen.

I hope his smells settle down soon for you.

I feel your pain - my 6 month old tomcat's urine is now eyewateringly acrid. He is being neutered next tuesday, I hope it doesn't take too long for the scent to ease up a bit.

I haven't' had much luck getting him to eat wet food. I will try again. I also ordered him a Catit fountain- hopefully he'll drink some additional water and dilute the urine a little. Thanks for the suggestions everyone!

It'll take about a month maybe a little longer till all the hormones in his body wear out that make the urine smell.
