How to care for a cat and a cat after sterilization and castration

Castration and sterilization do not leave significant wounds. However, caring owners should follow the rules for caring for pets after surgery.
On the day of surgery and upon returning home:
• The owner should remember that the animal will completely depart from anesthesia only after 6 to 14 hours, and while the drugs are still in effect, it should be placed in a warm and comfortable place from which it cannot be dropped – under anesthesia in cats and cats the coordination of movements is disturbed.

• When the pet wakes up, it will need to be drunk, but you cannot leave a bowl of water nearby.

• Ask the veterinary specialist who performed the surgery when you first feed your pet after the procedure. This time can vary from 6 to 24 hours depending on the type of anesthesia applied. For the first feeding, you should choose semi-liquid pet food that is familiar to the pet. Do not worry if in the first days after surgery the animal does not show appetite – this behavior is normal.

• The first 5 days after the operation there should not be a filler in the pet tray – this is important in order to avoid infection of the suture and wound.

Care of the seam in cats
• Before removing the stitches, the cat should be dressed in a special blanket.

• Treat the suture with a gentle antiseptic recommended by your veterinarian.

• Some stitches dissolve themselves – the specialist should inform you about the type of stitch

• The treatment mode of stitches will also be recommended by a doctor.

• The day of the removal of stitches will be called by the vet (usually 7-14 days after surgery)

Care for a wound in cats
• Do not allow your pet to lick and comb the wound

• If the cat shows an increased interest in the wound, a special collar should be worn.

• Treat your pet’s wound with an antiseptic as recommended by your veterinarian.

Transition to new food
The first three days after surgery, it is important to protect the pet from stressful situations. This also applies to food: let him get the usual feed. But from the fourth day, you should begin to transfer it to a new feed that meets the needs of a neutered cat and a sterilized cat. This transition should be carried out gradually: first, add only 10% of the new feed to the old feed, and then gradually increase the amount of the special diet.
