Default Does anybody here have any experience with chemical castration? Suprelorin

Our castrated cat pees in our home against everything. He is healthy and not stressed. Our vet adviced to have him chemical neutered to solve this problem. What do you think? Is it harmless for him? Could it help?

I don't understand. He's already neutered. How much more neutered can he get?

What tests have been done to rule out illness? Are their other cats? How many litter boxes do you have?

Default hi

All behavioral and medical options are exhausted. Only medication is left.
I am willing to just keep on cleaning up his spraying. But I am wondering what is best for him.

There are medications sure, but I don't know what you mean by "chemical castration". He's already neutered, it doesn't make sense.

The most common medicine for this problem is amitriptyline.

You didn't answer any of my questions. And I also am interested in what you are feeding. It's quite possible he has idiopathic cystitis, which is an inflammatory condition.

If you aren't, I recommend you feed an all canned, low carb, grain free diet.

Default hi

Thanks for your response.
The name of the medication is suprelorin (see title)
I didn't respond to most your questions, because to mention all the things we did for him is like writing a book.
The short version is. We have 6 cats which mildly irritate him, but he seems happy and active. He sprays his territory. He has ways to separate himself from the other cats if he wants. He has acces to places (with magnetic flap) where the other cats cannot come. Our walls are full with shelves for the cats, lots of scratching posts,...
All is in order believe me, I know alot about cat behavioral therapy.
He had bloodwork and urineanalysis.
Never any blood or problems with urinating.

I missed that in the title


I found this

Suprelorin - Cat

I, personally, would not go this route, but I understand your desperation. Perhaps it is worth a try.

Just be sure to keep him, and all the cats, on a canned food (or raw) diet for proper hydration.

Diet plays a much larger role in behavior than most people realize.
