Welcome to “Neutering, Spaying, or Castrating Your Cat,” a comprehensive online course brought to you by Petlearnia. This course is specifically designed for cat owners who are contemplating or preparing for their cat’s neutering (aka spaying in females or castrating in males) procedure. Like all of our courses, it’s been written by vets so you can be sure the information is safe and evidence-based.

What You Will Learn:

  1. Understanding Anatomy: Gain a foundational understanding of feline reproductive anatomy.
  2. Types of Neutering Operations: Explore the surgical options and alternatives available and how to choose the one that’s right for your pet.
  3. Potential Side-Effects and Benefits: Be fully aware of the pros and cons associated with neutering.
  4. Before and After Surgery: Everything you need to prepare for surgery day and a smooth and safe recovery.

Why Choose This Course?

  • Credible Information: Our course is written by qualified vets, and has been checked by a vet with a Certificate of Advanced Veterinary Practice in Small Animal Medicine (CertAVP SAM).
  • Interactive Learning: Engage with the content through videos, quizzes, voice notes, and clickable diagrams. All learning types are covered!
  • Self-Paced: The modular format allows you to absorb the information at your own pace and revisit it when needed. You’ll have access to the course for five years from the date you enrol.
  • Regularly Updated: We regularly update the course when new research is published. In addition, there’s a section for tips that other pet owners can contribute to, and we add these regularly, once they have been approved by our vets.

Making informed decisions starts with the right information.
