This is t... who has 6month + female cat. (Her name is T...)
Would like to get her neutralization surgery soon.
Could you please let me know the price and when I can go there and get this done?
She never go outside before, do I need to put her in the cage when I go to there?
Thanks for your help.

I am Dr Sing from Toa Payoh Vets. Thank you for your e-mail to Judy.
1. My estimated fee for spaying your female cat is around $150 inclusive of anaesthetics, surgery and post-op antibiotics and pain-killer injection and tablets. The suture used is a dissolvable type and so you don't need to return for stitch removal. A dressing will be applied to the surgical wound and no e-collars are usually required. However, please confine your cat indoors preferably to a room for 7-14 days after surgery.
2. You must bring the cat to Toa Payoh Vets in a carrier cage as some cats do run away as they feel frightened in a new environment of dogs and other animals. Once I had to find a box and tape up the cover for a young lady who brought in a cat to spay inside a towel. The cat was spayed. But she was nervous when the owner came to pick her up to go home. Once a cat jumps out of the plastic bag, she would be lost forever.
3. Bring the cat in at 9.30 am and she should be able to go home at 12.00 noon. No food and water after 10 pm the day before.
4. It is best that your female cat has 3 vaccinations completed before surgery.
