How to care for a cat after sterilization?

Sterilization (better known as castration) is the removal of the gonads by surgery. The operation is performed under local or general anesthesia, and after the procedure, the animals need some time to recover. How to facilitate this period for your four-legged friend? We learn to properly care for a cat after sterilization.

So, the procedure is already behind and now you have a weakened pet in front of you. What should I pay attention to first of all? We move in two directions: we make sure that the pet does not get hurt under the influence of anesthesia and that it does not lick the wounds.

The effect of anesthesia can persist for a day after the operation, and during this period the cat will have impaired coordination. Therefore, the pet should never be placed on high surfaces (bed, chair, etc.), otherwise it may accidentally fall. The best solution is a warm lounger placed on the floor. Also keep in mind that after surgery, the animals have a fever. Be sure to cover your pet with something warm (a plaid or sweater) so that he does not freeze.

After a successful sterilization, the animals recover very quickly. But it should be understood that for a cat the operation is more complicated than for a cat (more about this in the article “Sterilization of a kitten”). And that means she will need more time to recover. Physical activity during the recovery period after surgery must be excluded.

To prevent the pet from licking its wounds, use a special blanket (for cats) or a collar (for cats). At first, the condition of the wound must be constantly monitored. To maintain hygiene and prevent the inflammatory process, treat it with a special spray (for example, Vetericin), and if there is discharge from the wound, consult a veterinarian as soon as possible.

Make sure that there is always fresh drinking water in the public domain. But you should not rush with food. If the pet does not want to eat, do not try to force it. He will definitely eat when the appetite is normal.

Also, after surgery, animals can come in handy with diapers. Especially if you have a cat, not a cat, because females recover longer, or a kitten. In the first hours (and sometimes days) after the procedure, it will be difficult for a weakened pet to use the tray, and this is normal.

Now you know how to care for a cat after castration and for a cat after sterilization. Can anyone else help? Can. When the cat’s appetite is normal, make sure that its diet is of high quality and balanced. It is also useful for animals to give prebiotic drinks (for example, Viyo) for the recovery period. They will help to quickly “put on their feet” ward. And, of course, be sure to follow the recommendations of a veterinarian. For the postoperative period, he will prescribe antibiotics, and the scheme for their administration must be maintained.

And also, the best medicine is your attention, care and love. Perhaps you noticed how strongly during difficult periods pets are drawn to people, as if asking for help? Be reliable support for your wards, and they will definitely appreciate it!
