The Cat Practice

Surgical Services

Does your pet need to be spayed or neutered, or have a lump removed? While the idea of surgery for your cat can be worrisome, we’ll be happy to address your concerns and dispel your fears. We understand your feelings and have experienced them ourselves for our own pets! Because we have the only ABVP board-certified feline specialist not only in New Orleans, but in the state of Louisiana, we practice the highest standard of surgical care and safety at all times. Regardless of the size and scope of your pet’s surgical procedure, their safety always comes first.

Soft Tissue Surgery

With a veterinary surgeon board certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons on staff at The Cat Practice, you can be sure that if your feline family member needs a surgical procedure, your pet will literally be in the best possible hands. Our goal is to have your kitty be in the most experienced, modern, and safest surgical environment in veterinary medicine.

Spay/Neuter Procedure

Whether you adopted a kitten or new cat, you may be wondering how soon you are able to get them spayed or neutered. This routine yet essential surgery is always available at the Cat Practice. Getting your best friend spayed/neutered has added behavioral and medical benefits. As the responsible pet owner that you are, your cat will thank you for elevating their quality of life.

The Benefits of Spaying and Neutering Cats

Spaying:

  • Prevents queens from going into heat thereby eliminating excess vocalization and abnormal behavior
  • Makes females less likely to go off and roam in search of a mate
  • Reduces the risk of breast cancer
  • Prevents ovarian and uterine cancers
  • Prevents pyometra, an infection of the uterus

Neutering:

  • Can reduce aggression in males
  • Makes males less likely to escape the house and go in search of a mate
  • Makes males less likely to engage in spraying/marking

Orthopedic Surgery

Sometimes our kitties suffer a traumatic injury that results in orthopedic damage: damage to bones, tendons, ligaments, or joints. Accurate and timely diagnosis is essential to getting your cat feeling better and back in action quickly. At The Cat Practice, we can assess, treat, and manage these orthopedic problems on a short or long term rehab basis. At The Cat Practice we make sure to treat any musculoskeletal issues that may occur. We can assure you any follow-up visits and consistent monitoring will be provided so that your cat is well taken care of during the entire process.
