They retain the ability to literally until the last days of life. So this concept menopause cats exists. And if you do not intend to at least twice a year sweetly enjoy his favorite new offspring, it is likely to choose her spayed.
Today, this operation has become very popular among many cat owners. Firstly, it gives an absolute guarantee of reproductive sterility of your cat. Secondly, this operation is carried animals quite easily, and usually does not have any serious consequences. And thirdly, care for the cat after sterilization does not require any special skills or financial costs. Although care for the cat in the postoperative period is not so difficult to know some of the rules should still be. So let's look at how to take care of the cat after surgery, and what surprises to be ready.
Immediately after surgery
When it comes to ovariohysterectomy, this abdominal surgery, which is done under general anesthesia. Therefore, the very first animal especially after the withdrawal of such an operation - control over his behavior after anesthesia. But to take care of the care of the operated cat needed before the operation. Thus, for example, or to carry the bag, which operated the cat will go home to put warm bedding. And even better on the road back to wrap it in something warm. The fact is that after surgery the cat's body temperature drops, and the animal will freeze.
The first day after the operation - the time emotional turmoil for the hosts. After all, they will have to see how the animal moves away from the anesthesia, and the sight of it, frankly, is not pleasant. Imagine what to watch helpless perturbation paws, uncoordinated movements and despair eyes his beloved cat. Your task in this period - to protect the cat, as it may fall down while walking, running into walls and corners, confused direction. Coming out of anesthesia cat may suddenly jump up and try to run away, she may get entangled in the wires and threads and even injured. Therefore, all potentially dangerous items must be removed, and the cat itself is not put on the sofa, chair or bed and other high furniture.
Arrange temporary pussy warm comfortable couch on the floor, in a place protected from drafts. Keep the cat lying alone on the right side, because otherwise increased load on the heart after surgery weakened animal. Do not worry for your pet atypical behavior. During recovery from anesthesia pussy can suddenly wake up and jump up, cross legs on the floor or on a bed, hissing or meow. At this point, the behavior of its inadequate. However, the animal frightened their condition as much as you. So try to calm the sufferer.
It is possible in the first hours after sterilization arbitrary urination and vomiting. So get ready for this trouble and make sure that the cat moves on such surfaces, which then will be easy to wash. It is also important to make sure that sleeping after anesthesia the animal is not bogged down vomit. If you own a cat lapping water still can not, but want to drink, give her water from a pipette - a lot of water the cat at this moment it is not necessary, it is important to not dry in the mouth.
Another frightening moment - open eyes asleep after anesthesia cat. Yes cats do not turn a blind eye, even during operation. So you need to dig into the eyes of a special solution, and firmly close the eyelids of the animal and break every twenty minutes until the pussy starts to blink independently or simply turn a blind eye. However, more detailed instructions, you are sure to get the vet when you pick up your cat after surgery.
About a day depart from your pussy anesthesia and start to behave quite adequately, although her movements are still uncertain. Fully coordinate their movements an animal can only after three or four days. By the way, all this time, the animal may refuse to eat. However, the need to feed the cat. The first feeding after the operation is allowed in a day, and to give the water an animal can and should after three hours. The diet and feeding regime can observe the old and familiar to the animal. However, do not give him food which can cause constipation or diarrhea.
All further care of the cat after surgery reduced to the processing operating seams. Cats do not perebintovyvayut after surgery, since the animal can easily remove the bandages. From operating you get dressed in her favorite blanket with special strings on the back. All the time until the stitches are removed the animal must be in the horse-cloth. For the seams do not need to remove the blanket completely. She just gently pulls the hind legs, and then put back. Seams should be handled according to the instructions from your veterinarian. Typically, this is done using chlorhexidine.
By the way, this seems to be a convenient and safe blanket may be related to the potential dangers of the animal. For example, oklemalas of postoperative ailments cat may consider themselves quite healthy and begin to lead normal for her active lifestyle. This ekstremalka ceremony will start jumping on the tables, a sofa, table and window sills, and to do so is still graceful and deftly it is unlikely. It is possible that frisky pussy doprygnet simply not up to the goal, catch hold of anything from strings and hang blankets.
Believe that removed the poor fellow with the hangers will be very difficult because the animal will actively discouraged to resist, twisting, hissing and floating claws and teeth. If this happens in your absence, the consequences may be the most pitiable. Therefore, for about two weeks (until you remove the seams and blanket) try to limit the movement of cats in the house.
Strictly speaking, it is this is the care of the cat after sterilization. If your animal is healthy, and the operation was carried out in a clinic with a good reputation, there are no serious complications should arise. However, at the slightest suspicion of possible postoperative complications sure to contact your veterinarian. In this case it is better to be safe than not watch. So be attentive to your cat, and remember that we are responsible for those who tamed.
