  Tips after cat sterilization

Cat sterilization is a common procedure in which the cat's uterus and ovaries or the testicles of a male cat are removed. With the aim of preventing the desire of cats to mate and the occurrence of reproduction, however, the cat after sterilization may need attention, and take some measures until its safety is confirmed, and this is what we will explain in this article

Monitor the cat after sterilization

The cat must be monitored after the sterilization process, and it is important to see the veterinarian if any of the following symptoms appear on it

Loss of appetite, refusal to eat for more than 12 hours after sterilization, or lethargy and difficulty moving
She has persistent diarrhea or vomiting, or is unable to urinate within 12-24 hours after the sterilization procedure
Opening the surgical wound
Her stomach bulges
Difficulty breathing, or persistent panting
The operation wound becomes red, smells bad, or small lumps appear near it

After a cat is spayed, it is normal for small amounts of blood or pus to ooze from the surgical wound for 24 hours

Other tips after cat sterilization

It should be noted that the advice and instructions of the veterinarian must be followed carefully, which often include the following

Giving the cat the necessary medications after the sterilization process, and not stopping it without consulting the veterinarian, even if the cat is in good condition
Not leaving the cat alone for at least a full day after sterilization, and giving it love and care to keep it calm
Do not give the cat any painkillers without consulting the veterinarian. Although the cat after sterilization may feel pain for 5-7 days, giving it painkillers without consulting may expose it to poisoning
Providing comfort for the cat and not allowing it to go out or merge with other cats, while placing it in a safe place away from heights or stairs
Observe the cat's spayed wound, and keep the dressing dry and clean
Ensure that she does not continue to bleed, and urinate regularly
Do not allow the cat to lick the operation wound, to avoid infection or cat fungus, or get rid of the sutures early, and this can be done by installing a protective piece for the wound that can be obtained from the veterinarian’s clinics, or cat care stores
Monitor the cat's urination within the first 24 hours after sterilization by checking its litter box, and taking it directly to the vet if it has not been removed at all
Provide the cat with a healthy diet according to the veterinarian’s instructions, and gradually in the quantities of food provided to it, in addition to providing it with fresh water throughout the day, noting that the cat’s loss of appetite within 12-24 hours after sterilization is normal
Not bathing the cat within 10 days of sterilization

a summary

It usually takes 10-14 days for the cat to fully recover, as the stitches disappear on their own or they are removed by the vet, depending on their type
