Abstract
Owner's attitudes for tendonectomy, the advantages of this surgical technique, and postoperative complication were investigated by telephone survey. 18 cats on whom tendoncetomy was performed with or without concurrent ovario-hysterectomy or castration were included in this study. The first reason for tendonectomy was to avoid damage caused by the cat's scratching household materials. The first benefit of tendonectomy was decreasing damage to materials (89%). The primary concern of the owners of cats that underwent tendonectomy was postoperative pain after surgery (61%). Twelve cats (67%) that underwent tendonectomy recovered fully within the first three days and 6 cats (33%) recovered within two weeks. After combining the very positive rating and positive as positive, seventeen owners (94%) of cats that underwent tendonectomy had a positive attitude to the surgery.
