Hi All! I'm taking my two Maine Coon kitties to get neutered tomorrow. I'll be honest, my vet isn't the most helpful around (I'll probably be looking for a new one after the surgery) and wasn't really interested in answering my questions before the surgery!

Do you recommend doing the blood work and IV fluids during a neutering? Both male kittens are a few weeks over the 6 month mark and in most places I've looked it says that it's not required for males. I want to make sure I'm doing everything right by my little guys but I live in California and don't want to pay any unnecessary costs if I don't need to. Please advise :)

"Preanesthetic Bloodwork" is listed on the invoice from when we had Wile E neutered. I don't see anything for IV fluids though.

I have never heard of IV fluids being necessary for a neuturing. That surgery if done right should be quick and not super invasive so I'm not sure why they would be needed. I could see if it was a major surgery but not something so routine.. Then again i am not a Vet
