Epilepsy and Castration

January 12th, 2011, 10:40 AM
My cat has just been castrated at 10 months, he couldn't have it earlier as he developed Eplepsy who is now treated with tablets, since three months ago.

Last night after we bought him home, he had a few seizures and we had to give him a tablet so he could calm down, he stopped fiting but he couldn't rest, it was only this morning when he appeared to be himself but he has just been sleeping all day and in the dark room.

Should we be worried about him, or is it something that happen with eplieptic cats after castration. He is sleeping and looks happy, but he hasn't moved out of the room apart from using the litter tray.

Have you contacted your vet to let him/her know? I know any surgery is hard on a cat so hopefully it is just the stress and he will be back to normal soon :pray:

Epilepsy is a risky business. My dog (16 now) was never been fixed because the risk of putting her under was too great.
I would contact your vet and let them know what he is experiencing. I would imagine knowing his history they watched him carefully when he was neutured. I'm really surprised they didn't keep him a bit longer. I would think part of his problem now is the stress he underwent. Sleeping after surgery is normal. Sleeping for a long time afterwards is not.

He woke up and said hello to us, he eats like no tomorrow, had a walk round the house and he is sleeping again, he looks calm and stretching out.
The vets thought that he would be better staying at home, cause he gets stressed very easy. However if he still like this tomorrow we will ring the vet.
