Check in Your Cat(s)
Clinic Pick Up Instructions
Please be patient with our volunteer staff. Sometimes a clinic may run late due to a large number of females, which take longer to sterilize. Each cat recovers from anesthesia at a different rate, and some cats take longer to wake up than others. For their safety, cats can only be released after they are awake and responsive. A Coalition volunteer will call you when your cat(s) are ready for pick up at the number you leave at Admissions. Please keep your phone near you the day of surgery!
Please Be Prompt
Once you receive your pick up call please leave promptly to retrieve your cat(s) at the clinic. We will have over 100 cats at the clinic and your cat(s) will be ready to go and fully recover safely with you.
Your check out paperwork will provide valuable information:
Surgery Recovery Instructions
Monitor Cats in Traps Overnight
An exception for feeding after surgery should be made for kittens. They may be offered a small amount of canned food the night of surgery as soon as they are fully recovered from anesthesia. This helps keep their blood sugar normal.
Monitor Post-Surgical Behavior
Normal behaviors during recovery include deep sleep, head bobbing, wobbly movements, rapid breathing, shivering, agitation and hypersensitivity to light and sound. Bleeding from the ear tip may occur but should stop by the next day. Although normal, cats should not be released until they no longer exhibit these behaviors.
Abnormal behaviors include continued bleeding from the surgical site, difficulty breathing, vomiting, and inability to awaken from anesthesia. If they are exhibiting these behaviors contact your Veterinarian immediately, The Life Center in Leesburg or Blue Ridge Vet in Purcellville.
Release the Cats
If a cat is not yet fully awake or still exhibits abnormal behavior the day after surgery, and you have concerns about the recovery of the cat, do not release it. Instead, call your veterinarian immediately or The Life Center in Leesburg at 703-777-5755 or Blue Ridge Vet in Purcellville at 540-338-7387 and then call the Loudoun Community Cat Coalition at 571-293-2386 so that we are aware of the situation.
