I assume that medical treatment has been tried and if not being of any benefit then I advice you to have the surgery done. The operation is relatively superficial and quick. The post operative period will perhaps be a more critical time and the cat should spend a few days under supervision.
Good luck. Please keep us informed of progress.



Our cat had this operation when he was 16 years of age and lived until he was 21 with no problems...all the best
