My cat’s testicles are swollen, and they are causing him discomfort.

This is a big concern, some of the underlying causes of swollen testicles might be trauma, infection and testicular torsion, amongst others.

If he is due to be desexed it would be a good idea to get this done and consider having the testicles sent in to a laboratory for analysis so we can know what the cause is.

A hands-on examination from your local vet would be a great place to start, and as soon as possible.

If you’d like to chat in person, you can get a vet on a live video call or start a chat to discuss in more detail now.
