Abstract | The present study was conducted to ascertain the prevalence of most common feline genital surgical affections in a teaching veterinary hospital, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Cairo University, Egypt and different pet clinics at Tanta and Cairo governorates during a 3-years period from October 2016 to March 2019. A total of 11334 cats (included 6029 queens and 5305 tomcats) belonging to different ages and breeds were included in this study. Feline genital system surgical affections were registered for age, sex, breed, and the main complaint from their owners. A full data of each case was collected including case history, clinical examination radiographic, ultrasonographic and laboratory findings in addition to histopathological examinations according to the previously designed examination sheet. A total number of 1684 of cats suffered from female genital surgical affections; 53 tomcats suffered from male genital surgical affections. The prevalence of uterine and ovarian surgical affections was recorded in addition to male surgical affections in tomcats. Female genital surgical affections were the highest recorded problems among cats. The present data enable veterinarians in Egypt to ascertain their needs for diagnostic tools and surgical interference that must be present at any pet clinic.
