For male cats, it can avoid the problems of oestrus caused by tumor and hypertrophy of prostate gland. In addition, frequent estrus male cats are most likely to have urinary tract obstruction, because there are secretions blocked, sterilization surgery can fundamentally solve this problem. For female cats, high estrus frequency can cause ovarian cysts, and the cats who have given birth will have problems such as pus accumulation, tumor, ovarian tumor and fibroids. Sterilizing cats can fundamentally reduce the health risks of cats, which is good for health.

       2. After sterilization, cats will not be infected with sexually transmitted diseases, such as feline sexuality.

       3. Let the cat get rid of the tension, irritability and loss of appetite caused by estrus, and restore the original lively nature. And for the male cat, it will also change the habit of venting.

       4. Avoid breeding blindly and control the number of stray cats.

       5. Improving environmental quality (an important part of environmental protection)

       When a male cat grows up, he will make a cat, that is, he is in estrus, and once every two to three months, he will like to run out, regardless of the difficulties and dangers, and will fight with the male cat in order to fight for the female cat, and will shout loudly. Therefore, people who live in the city will have their cats sterilized. On the one hand, it can reduce the risk index of going out. On the other hand, it can also reduce the trouble and trouble brought to the neighbors. After all, it is not a pleasant thing to hear the bleak sound of a cat when you are sleeping soundly at night.

       The best time for male cats to be sterilized is 6-9 months, before the first estrus.

       Because cats need hormones to help them develop. Male cats secrete androgens through sex pheromones, which affect bone development. If sterilization is performed before the bone stops growing, that is, six months ago, it will affect the growth and hair of the cat.

       If the cat has surgery after estrus, of course, it is OK. But if the cat has the estrous behavior of urinating, calling frequently and like to slip out of the house before the estrus, it may form a habit that is difficult to correct. Therefore, sterilization in the first estrus period can effectively reduce the probability of estrus behavior, and effectively eliminate reproductive system diseases, such as cancer.

       If it is a stray cat, sterilization is not recommended. If you have not considered adopting it, do not sterilize the stray cat.

       Many cats in the operation after three or four days will have vomiting phenomenon, this is because of the normal reaction of anesthetic to gastrointestinal stimulation, do not have to go to the hospital. If the cat vomits and refuses to drink water, give it 0.9% sodium chloride (normal saline), or go to the pharmacy to buy oral rehydration salt granules. It must be forced to be infused. At least 30ml per day can be fed with plastic needle. Continuous vomiting will dehydrate the cat and even lead to its own acidosis death. 30 ml of normal saline can also promote gastrointestinal peristalsis and prevent postoperative intestinal obstruction.

       But don’t take a bath for half a month. Female cats stop estrus soon after castration. If male cats are castrated after estrus, it will last about 20 days before they stop playing cats.

       Long term estrus of the cat, the mood will appear abnormal, such as spring call, irritability, loss of appetite, etc., sterilization can let the cat get rid of the tension, irritability and loss of appetite caused by estrus, and restore the original lively nature.

For a female cat, it usually takes 7-10 days to remove the thread. After the thread removal, it still needs 3-5 days for the collar to be removed until the wound is completely healed. Male cats generally do not need to remove the thread.

       It is suggested that the cat should stay in the cage and keep the environment quiet. If the environment is too noisy or crowded, it is easy to stimulate the cat to produce stress response.

       Once a cat is sexually mature, it can be considered for sterilization. Generally speaking, 6-8 months old is the best time for sterilizing cats. Early implementation of sterilization surgery, cats recover quickly, the risk of disease is low. Many parents of sterilized cats reported that cats who had been sterilized earlier tended to be pure and happy.

       It only takes a few minutes for male cats and half an hour for female cats to be discharged. Generally, after 1-2 days of recovery, the cat can take care of itself (the male cat can recover on the same day). After 5-7 days of recovery, you can share a good life with the cat.

       Therefore, as the owner, you only need 1-2 days to monitor the whole process of sterilizing the cat. It is a good choice to take the cat for surgery on weekends.

       Knowledge preparation: if you are taking your cat for the first time for sterilization, it is recommended to refer to the experience articles of other cat friends in lucky local cat website before operation, which can help you learn more about sterilization operation and postoperative care.

       Preparation for surgery: determine the immunity of the cat; contact a reliable veterinarian; in order to prevent the cat from vomiting due to anesthetic effect, fasting 24 hours before sterilization and water 8 hours before sterilization; take the cat to sterilization within the agreed time.

       Article preparation: special cat bag (box) or flat box, urine pad, eye drops (general hospital will give).

       Choose a regular animal hospital and skilled veterinarian, summer can also be a good way to complete the sterilization of the cat. It should be noted that:

       Don’t get heatstroke on the way to the hospital; if the cat’s breathing and heartbeat are very fast when you get to the hospital, you should wait for the cat to return to normal before anesthesia; after anesthesia, the cat’s temperature regulation ability is very poor, so you should take a free car on the way home after surgery; put it in a cool and ventilated room after going home.

       Sterilization can fundamentally reduce the reproductive system diseases caused by frequent estrus in cats, such as ovarian cysts in female cats, pathological changes in male cats, urinary tract problems, etc., and greatly reduce the risk of reproductive system diseases in cats. In addition, sterilization makes the cat get rid of the tension, irritability and loss of appetite caused by estrus, and restore the calm character before, which makes it easier for the cat to maintain a healthy state.

       Male cats can only be sterilized when they are adults.

       Before the growth and development of cats is completed, the disadvantages are greater than the advantages, which will cause abnormal bone structure and urinary tract problems. When cats are 6 months old, they can live on their own, with a life span of about 10 years. Domestic cats have reproductive capacity from 7 to 12 months after birth, and they are in estrus from January to March, from May to August, or from October.

       Cats have strong reproductive capacity, and multiple births a year will lead to the emergence of many stray cats. At the same time, if the owner indulges in the cat during the estrus period, the cat will not only call spring in the middle of the night, affect the rest, but also cause certain harm to the body because of the physiological needs of hormone stimulation can not be released. Therefore, if there is no plan to find a mate for the cat, sterilization is still very important for the cat.

       Extended data

       In recent years, it has been accepted that how old a cat is suitable for sterilization. It is more correct and appropriate to carry out birth control surgery at the age of 5-6 months. Compared with the popular view of ligation, it is necessary to perform birth control surgery if you do not intend to let your cat reproduce.

       Scientific reports have confirmed that the average life span of a kitten who has been birth control is longer than that of a cat without birth control. Of course, the risk of surgery is worrying, but complete health examination before operation and careful selection of veterinary surgeons can reduce similar risks.

       In the United States, most veterinarians have recommended birth control surgery at the age of two months, but Taiwan cats are busy getting sick at the age of two months, such as respiratory tract infection, mold, ear scabies, etc., and are also busy with vaccination.

       Therefore, most of them are recommended to be implemented at the age of 5-6 months. At this time, the cat’s health condition is relatively stable, and the risk of operation is relatively low. Moreover, it is better to operate before the estrus, so as to avoid the generation of sexual impulse after the operation.
