The International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM) has launched a campaign to highlight the need for all cats to receive pain relief after neutering.

Neutering is a surgical procedure and therefore associated with pain. However, in a UK-based study published in 2013, while perioperative analgesia was widely used in both dogs and cats, only 33% of cats received post-operative analgesia following neutering compared with 75% of dogs, and neutering was considered more painful in dogs than in cats.1 iCatCare's veterinary division, the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM), encourages the routine assessment and treatment of pain in cats. However, recognition of pain is not always straightforward and the perception that cats experience less pain than dogs with neutering may largely reflect different behavioural responses to pain between the two species rather than genuine differences in the experience of pain. This campaign highlights the reasons many cats are not receiving post-operative analgesia, and aims to encourage clinics to review their policies on prescribing analgesics for routine neutering procedures.
