DVM aims to set Guinness speed record

Article

Naples, Fla. - It took Dr. Randy Eisel, of Naples, Fla., 10 hours to neuter 56 cats last month. His goal: to raise spay/neuter awareness and earn a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.

NAPLES, FLA. — Dr. Randy Eisel wants to be known as the veterinarian who neutered the most cats in one day.

Fast work: It took Dr. Randy Eisel, of Naples, Fla., 10 hours to neuter 56 cats last month. His goal: to raise spay/neuter awareness and earn a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.

The small-animal practitioner who works with animal control in Collier County, Fla., spent a 10-hour shift last month neutering 56 cats — a feat he believes is worthy of the Guinness Book of World Records.

A pet sterilization category does not yet exist. Eisel says he's filed the paperwork with Guinness and was waiting for a review committee's response at press time.

But the veterinarian's real agenda is not about setting a world record.

"The whole point of this thing was to promote spaying and neutering. But who knows? Guinness might actually agree to accept this."
