At The Cat Doctor, we perform basic soft tissue surgeries your cat is likely to need in their lifetime. Our equipment for monitoring, anesthesia, and the tools used in the procedure are all specific for use with cats. If you haven’t already guessed, cats are our specialty in all the fields of veterinary medicine, and surgery is no exception! Bring your cat into our feline hospital in the Montrose neighborhood of Houston for their basic surgical needs.

Care for Your Cat After Surgery
After any procedure, your cat may be a little disoriented, lethargic, and not like their usual playful selves. It can take up to 24 hours for the anesthesia to completely wear off, so it’s best to give your cat a quiet, isolated place to rest during this time. Then, once they are a bit perkier, you need to make sure they do not over-exert themselves with too much playing, running, and jumping. We provide pain medication before and after the surgery, and will also give you medication as needed for their at-home recovery. Please follow our instructions so that your cat is comfortable while their surgical wounds heal. Depending on the surgery, we may ask that you bring your pet in for a follow-up appointment so we can make sure they are making progress and healing properly.
Should you have any questions before or after surgery, please don’t hesitate to contact us! We’re here to help both you and your kitty.
Did You Know?
Ever wonder why your cat meows? Interestingly, cats don’t typically meow at each other, only at us (probably to get our undivided attention).
