ok the last of our cats is getting fixed on monday , i had my females done over 2 months ago now and still got 2 females to go once there old enough. he goes in monday morning but has to stay over? i knew females had to here but i dint know about males? i thought it was more of a simple op? its been so long since i had to have a male cat done 5 years ago , so maybe things changed ? as back then they came out early evening.

I guess each vet decides what they are going to do. My males and females I brought in at 6:00 am and they were on their way home with me at 3:30 pm.

I have always read that the male is by far the simpler yet my male also stayed over night for "observation". My wife suspects this is a way of padding the bill, but I will reserve my judgement and let you know this is the same experience I had.

It depends what time the operation is scheduled for. If he is going to be done late on in the day, they may want to keep him overnight as he may not be out of the anaesthetic in time for you to take him home.

If I were you, I would ask the vet why they want to keep him overnight (and there may well be a satisfactory reason, at least your mind will be at rest!)

When I worked at a clinic, they told everyone they'd go home the same day, but when something went wrong (which was relatively rare), it's like in human medicine... they aren't exactly completely honest, they say they are keeping them for "observation" that night, and it's true, but it's usually because someone wasn't watching respiration or the heart monitor went out (we had horrible equipment). Usually things were o.k. the next day, but you know, it's just one of those phrases that has multiple uses. I suspect some vets use it to pad the bill too.

Obviously, I didn't work there long.

Nah, he will hate THEM...you will be the hero because you are bringing him back home. He doesn't know that you knew what they were going to do, LOL!

Glad to hear it went well, warm healing vibes for hima and thank you for giving another cat the gift of spay/neuter!

Yes....even my cats who have lived together for over 8 years will hiss at each other when they get back from the vet. Just give it time..and everything will be ok.
