What should be paid attention to when the cat is sterilized

       a) Take the cat home

       Don’t try to take the cat from the veterinarian. They are specially trained to hold cats. All you have to do is open the box and let the vet lay the cat flat. Cover the cat gently. Keep your head out of the way and keep the cat breathing smoothly.

       Eye drops should be given to cats in a timely manner. One drop should be given at intervals depending on the dryness of cat’s eyeballs.

       If you like, you can check the cat’s mouth, pull out the cat’s tongue, wipe the mucus in the mouth, and keep the cat’s mouth half open for breathing.

       You can also place a small folded towel under the cat’s shoulder and let the cat’s head drop slightly to prevent mucus (or vomit) from flowing from the cat’s mouth to the throat and prevent breathing. This position is called recovery position.

       You can gently hold the cat’s paw with your hand. Her paw will be very cold at this time.

       Avoid bumping, shaking and moving the cat without permission. Try to let the cat sleep more under the control of anesthetic. Because it hurts when you wake up.

       (I personally object to the so-called recovery needle after surgery, which is not conducive to the recovery of the cat.)

       b) From postoperative to recovery

       This stage takes about 3-5 hours. According to the cat’s physical fitness, the healthy cat wakes up faster. Some cats wake up an hour after surgery, while others sleep for a full day. What we can do when a cat is sleeping:

       1. Put the cat box in a quiet, warm place to avoid sunlight. Guard by the side, don’t leave.

       2. Before the cat’s eyeballs are dry and wrinkled, the eye drops should be dripped in time, and the cotton wool should be used to wipe off the liquid.

       3. Observe the breathing, pulse and body temperature of the cat. In case of serious abnormality, contact the veterinary hospital in time. (cat’s pulse: 160-240 beats / min body temperature: 38-39 breaths: 20-30 beats / min)

       4. Pay attention to heat preservation. If it is low temperature season, put a warm water bag in the cat’s box. Pay attention to keep indoor ventilation and dry, but avoid direct wind blowing to cats and cats.

       c) Within 2 hours after awakening

       1. Wake up precursor: limbs dream like occasionally quiver, eyeball began to turn slowly, many times slowly try to close eyes.

       Once there are these actions, it proves that the cat is about to wake up.

       2. Wake up

       Some cats will stagger around once they wake up. At this time, the anesthetic effect has not been completely dissipated. If the cat is not conscious, she must follow her closely to avoid bumping, injury and jumping with brute force. Especially for the female cat, it may lead to the loss of abdominal tie line and bleeding.

       Some cats wake up for a while and then go into a coma for a period of time. As long as the body temperature, pulse and breathing are normal, there is no problem.

       The male cat will urinate once after waking up. The amount of urine is very large. Moreover, because of the anesthetic effect, he often chooses the place where he does not urinate to solve the problem, such as on the bed or in the closet. At this time, try not to intimidate him. It is better to prevent and relieve the disease. The urine of some cats and cats will be bloody and stained orange red, which should be normal. Closely observe the subsequent reactions.

       Soon after awakening, the female cat will resist the gauze dressing after operation, licking, biting and tearing. You can use small scissors to cut the parts that seriously hinder the cat’s movement, so as to alleviate the discomfort of the cat. We can consider wearing Elisabeth collar to the cat, but for those who are irritable and arrogant, this method is not advisable. We should try our best to keep the cat calm after surgery. You can also consider making cotton surgical clothes for cats to protect the knife edge. The operating clothes should be breathable and comfortable to avoid inflammation.

       For the female cat after operation, the most important thing is to ensure that there is no infection, damage and other accidents before the stitching is removed. Do not go to the hospital without authorization to bandage the cat. You can put the self-made surgical suit on the outside to protect it.

       Because the ovaries and fallopian tubes of female cats are entangled with organs such as * *, once there is any mistake in the operation, the cat will not be able to urinate, and the consequences are unimaginable. So when your cat can pee, you can breathe a sigh of relief.

       d) Postoperative diet:

       It is suggested to buy formula tinned cats from pet hospitals, feed them for 2 days after operation, and then slowly replace them with ordinary canned cats and cat food. reason:

       1. There are antibiotics in the special formula can after operation, which can prevent postoperative infection. I personally do not recommend the practice of intravenous antibiotic infusion after surgery, I think it is not necessary. If properly cared for, cats and cats are not susceptible to infection. In addition to interfering with the autoimmunity of cats, the massive use of antibiotics will affect the cat’s function and leave hidden dangers.

       2. It is specially designed for cats with poor appetite after operation, which can stimulate appetite. Because of the side effects of anesthetics and the weakness of cats after operation, the appetite of cats will be seriously affected. To induce the cat to eat, one dose should not be too much, only enough to finish two bites. Heat to body temperature if necessary.

       3. Balanced nutrition, not causing constipation or diarrhea. For postoperative cats, especially female cats, constipation must be avoided. When cats exert force, it is easy to cause abdominal ligation line to fall off.

       If you can’t buy the canned formula after surgery, you can autonomously:

       Chicken paste + chicken liver paste + fish paste (beef puree) + egg (chicken liver must not be large)

       After mixing evenly, steam without any seasoning.

       When feeding cats and cats (at least 2 times a day is recommended), 1 / 6 tablets of Xianfeng Liu and 1 piece of lactase are added. (drugs can be stopped 3 days after operation)

       Guarantee cat food and water supply at ordinary times.

       If your doctor does stitches for cats without stitching,

       Basically, just keep the wound dry,

       If you want to go back to the hospital for stitching,

       Besides, you should pay attention to keep the wound dry,

       And avoid the cat licking the wound,

       Bite the stitches off,

       You can wear headgear for your cat (available in pet store. If you are handy, make it yourself, because it may only take a week)

       Of course, cats don’t adapt,

       Don’t be soft hearted. Take it off,

       The female cat’s wound can be removed in about a week,

       The food we eat is still the same,

       You don’t need any supplements,

       The cat’s feed is very nutritious,

       If you find that the cat’s wound is always wet,

       Or the cat is in a bad mood,

       Be sure to take it to the doctor.

       Do you want to change the crystal cat litter?

       I’m afraid that the dust of coagulated sand will do harm to the wound,

       When two of my family were ligated, they continued to use coagulated sand,

       You can take the doctor’s advice.

       Basically, my meow started to jump in three days

       Although the doctor suggested that it would be better not to do so, he seemed to be better

       At least his own feelings

       But the wound is really good, it should take a week

       Because sometimes it’s going to open the wound, so we all shut him up first

       I hope he doesn’t move too much

       One of the things to note is

       Don’t let him do strenuous exercise

       Because intense exercise… Can crack the wound,

       Pay attention not to let him lick the wound

       Some kittens love to lick the wound, the result let the wound inflame or worsen, this is taboo

       So some doctors will put protective covers on kittens. That’s Queen Elizabeth’s headgear

       Although a lot of cats don’t like that because they don’t have the same weight when they walk

       It’s hard to eat and drink, but it’s better to wear it first

       Because my family meow didn’t take it before, so I licked the wound

       He bit off all the sutures. As a result, the wound grew pus, so the doctor had to guess the suture

       Let his wound grow on his own, but there is a hole in his belly… No sewing

       It’s just the whole thing. It’s disgusting. I have to rub it on him several times a day

       He is really a new laborer when he takes medicine

       3. Don’t touch water

       For the same reason… Wounds get inflamed when they touch water

       Try to eat light food

       It’s basically the same as people. It’s better to eat light if you have injuries

       5. Don’t let them eat too much

       It’s not superstition that cats get fat after birth control

       It’s true. When the wound is healed

       First of all, don’t have the idea of tonifying his body

       In order to avoid kitten overweight, harm to health

       Whole course nursing of cat and cat sterilization operation

       A: Timing of operation

       a) Physiology: in principle, it is ideal to operate after a cat’s physiological maturity and estrus. At this stage, the cat’s reproductive and corresponding organs are mature. Too early surgery, easy to cause urinary calculi and other reproductive system, urinary tract diseases.

       Avoid operation in estrus period, which is easy to cause massive hemorrhage.

       In order to prevent the cat from disturbing the people at night during the estrus period, a piece of chlorpheniramine can be fed around 6:00 in the evening. Be careful not to take medicine for more than 3 days. Any medicine has side effects on cats and cats. Medication is not a long-term solution. On the one hand, the effect is not very obvious. On the other hand, cats are not satisfied for a long time. They are in a depressed state, which can cause hormone secretion disorder and lead to reproductive system diseases and even cancer.

       A mother cat should consider surgery after her health has recovered (at least one month after giving birth).

       b) Time: after 8 months for female cats and 9 months for males. (the sexual maturity of different breeds of cats varies greatly. Generally speaking, Asian breeds are earlier than other breeds, and short hair breeds are earlier than long hair breeds.)

       B: Before operation

       a) Vaccines:

       You have to be in good health and vaccinated. (for details, please refer to the relationship between sterilization and vaccine)

       b) Apparatus:

       1. A large paper box or something that can at least hold a cat lying on its back.

       2. Clean small cotton mattress, fluttering under the box, can make the cat comfortable after surgery. (for disinfection, you can soak the washed mattress in drip or 84 solution, and then expose it to sunlight for 1 hour.)

       3. Clean little quilt. Due to the operation itself and the strength of the anesthetic, the cat’s body temperature is very low after the operation, and the body’s ability to keep warm is very low.

       4. Eye drops. With ordinary people with eye drops (such as chloramphenicol eye drops) can be. When cats are anesthetized, their eyes can’t be closed. If the vitreous body is exposed to the air for a long time, it will lose water. You can even see that the cat’s eyes are bright and big, and their eyes are sunken like walnut skin. So from the end of the operation, be sure to drop eye drops for the cat in time until she regains consciousness.

       £©No food, no water and cleaning:

       General anesthesia is used for sterilization, especially for female cats.

       The anesthetics used by veterinarians are basically a kind of injection called 846 mixture. This kind of anesthetic has been eliminated from doctors because of its strong reaction. It is estimated that this is the consideration for the profit of pet hospitals. As a result, cats are prone to vomiting after being anesthetized, and the vomiting at this time is completely unconscious, and the body will not make corresponding adjustment and protection measures, which will easily cause vomit to plug the throat and nasal cavity, which may lead to suffocation of cats.

       Therefore, fasting 24 hours (at least 10 hours) before surgery, only water. Four hours before operation, no water was allowed.

       Preoperative fasting can not only reduce the risk of cats after anesthesia, but also can promote the recovery of appetite and eat as soon as possible. In order to keep the cat in good health even after a day’s fasting, we must take good care of the cat’s life and strive to lay a solid foundation for the cat.

       Two days before the operation, you can give the cat a bath, must use warm water, the time should be short, dry as soon as possible after washing, pay attention not to catch cold. Because the cat after at least a month, it is best not to take a bath, in order to avoid wound inflammation or because of body resistance reasons, cold. (cats and dogs are different, especially not used to bathing, especially the cat’s skin will naturally secrete a kind of grease, clean fur, maintain health. Bathing often can destroy the cat’s function. Therefore, if the cat is kept indoors for a long time, it is not very dirty and there is no need to take a bath, especially when the temperature is low in autumn and winter.)

       d) Weighing:

       It’s better to weigh the cat at home. In this way, the cat is more relaxed and weighs more accurately. The weight of cats is the absolute basis for doctors to determine the amount of anesthetic injected into cats. Almost half of the risk of surgery comes from the control of anesthetic dosage. A little more anesthetics will directly lead to prolonged coma, brain and nerve damage, and even euthanasia. So weighing is very important.

       Choose accurate weighing equipment as far as possible. If you can’t, you can choose an ordinary spring scale in the supermarket. The lower the maximum weight, the more accurate it will be. If you want to know whether the spring scale is accurate, you can select some items of 0.25kg, 0.5kg, 1kg, 2kg, 3kg in the supermarket in advance to weigh and verify.

       It is better to put the cat in a container before leaving for the hospital, so as to make the cat as quiet as possible. When the pointer is relatively static, read the value. Then weigh the weight of the container and subtract the two values to get the weight of the cat.

       C: In operation

       There’s nothing to say in the operation. We can’t help. However, we still introduce the general process of the operation, so that we have a clear idea, so that postoperative care is more targeted.

       a) Let’s first introduce the operation itself

       Male cat: the scrotum was incised longitudinally and the vas deferens were excised.

       Female cat: open the abdominal cavity and remove the ovaries, fallopian tubes and some parts.

       b) Let me introduce the general process

       1. Weighing: if it has been weighed at home, just tell the doctor.

       First of all, if your child is a boy, you don’t have to worry at all. Just pay attention to whether the doctor has ordered eye drops or ointment during the operation. The aim is to prevent the cats in the anesthetic from drying their eyes because they can’t close their eyes. After a few hours, everything returned to normal.

       If it’s a female cat, there may be more worries. First of all, the doctor’s clinical experience must be rich, the knife edge should be controlled within 3 needles, if the knife edge is too long, the cat will suffer more than a few days of crime. Under normal circumstances, excluding preparation time (such as shaving), the time on the operating table should not exceed 20 minutes, which shows that the doctor is skilled enough. It is necessary for the female cat to use enough eye ointment. She is still under anesthesia for a few hours after the operation, and her eyes are still fixed. Doctors should take this into consideration. After the operation, it must be placed flat (put in the flat bottom basket to take home), otherwise it will be very bad for the wound. It should be admitted that the female cat operation is more painful for the cat, because it is opened after all. But don’t underestimate the cat’s recovery ability. Usually after 50 hours of operation, they can eat and go to the toilet normally, and even bite and play with their owners.

       The only reason is that the recovery is faster, which is attributed to the superb skills of Dr. pan. Secondly, as long as the operation is normal, the cat’s recovery ability is almost the same. Therefore, if the doctor you are looking for is an experienced doctor (do not let the intern perform the operation, you can strongly request. If you don’t care about that much, the life of the child is very important. It doesn’t matter if you offend anyone. You can achieve the goal). It will be normal after 2-3 days of operation. Just because the knife edge has not fully healed, so we should especially watch him not to jump around to prevent the wound from bursting. The suture can be removed in 7 days, not necessarily in the hospital of operation, but in the nearby hospital. It’s a very simple job to take out the thread.

       I didn’t know so much about fasting and water deprivation. I didn’t know so much about it during the operation alone. It was only banned for four hours, and she was OK during the operation. Some cats also vomit after one day’s prohibition. Each cat has different sensitivity to anesthetics. It is normal to vomit or not to vomit. After surgery, some cats will go to the toilet in bed, but they are not alone, struggling to urinate. Therefore, incontinence and incontinence are normal, mainly depending on the cat’s sensitivity to anesthetics.

       Don’t worry too much. If you take this step, you can choose a good doctor and take good care of it for 2-3 days

       Good luck!

       It can be a little later. It’s a little earlier now. The organs haven’t matured yet. We can do it in 7 or 8 months.

       As far as my own experience is concerned, there is no big change in the sterilized cats. They should eat as they should and sleep as they should. The lively ones are still lively. Many of them become very sticky after sterilization. Ha ha

       There are anti components in the special formula can after operation, which can prevent postoperative infection. I personally do not recommend the practice of intravenous antibiotic infusion after surgery, I think it is not necessary. If properly cared for, cats and cats are not susceptible to infection. In addition to interfering with the autoimmunity of cats, the massive use of antibiotics will affect the cat’s function and leave hidden dangers.

       2. It is specially designed for cats with poor appetite after operation, which can stimulate appetite. Because of the side effects of anesthetics and the weakness of cats after operation, the appetite of cats will be seriously affected. To induce the cat to eat, one dose should not be too much, only enough to finish two bites. Heat to body temperature if necessary. 3. Balanced nutrition, not causing constipation or diarrhea. For postoperative cats, especially female cats, constipation must be avoided. When cats exert force, it is easy to cause abdominal ligation line to fall off. If you can’t buy the canned formula, you can make it yourself

       Chicken paste + chicken liver paste + fish paste (beef puree) + egg (chicken liver must not be large) stir evenly, without any seasoning, steam. Each time the cat is fed (at least twice a day), 1 / 6 tablets of Xianfeng Liu and 1 tablet of lactamase are added (the medicine can be stopped 3 days after operation). Guarantee cat food and water supply at ordinary times.

       ¡¤Take out the thread

       The operation of male cat is a kind of small operation in vitro, which does not need suture needle. It basically returns to normal 2 days after operation, and there is no suture removal problem.

       At least 7 days (7-10 days) after operation. It is better to go to the hospital to remove the thread, and facilitate the doctor to check the healing of the knife edge.

       If you have to take the cat’s stitches at home, prepare the equipment: alcohol lamp, alcohol (70% medical), sharp medical scissors, tweezers, cotton swab, cotton wool. Specific operation:

       The operator should wash hands (use finger brush to remove the hidden dirt in the nail), and wash with running water for 3 times. Soak in drip solution (or 84 solution) for 10 minutes and dry naturally without towel. Don’t touch anything with your hands easily.

       1. Ask an assistant to remove the postoperative clothing for the cat.

       There should be a stack of rectangular gauze covering the knife edge and fixed to the cat’s abdominal skin with adhesive tape (the hair on the cat’s abdomen has been removed before surgery, and it will take about a month to fully recover to the previous length). Take this piece of gauze carefully, you can see the blade of the cat’s knife. Generally, the sewing needle is a single stitch, and it should be 3-5 stitches. The knot is usually on one side.

       If the knife edge is red and swollen, and there is secretion outflow, it should be changed to: cotton swab dipped in alcohol, gently wipe the knife edge, three times. Repack it. Timely contact the hospital for treatment.

       2. Dip the cotton swab with alcohol, gently press it on the sewing needle, and slowly wipe and rub it. It causes the suture to separate from the skin.

       3. The sharp scissors were sterilized on the alcohol lamp at high temperature. Cut the thread close to the knot. The tips of tweezers were sterilized by high temperature on the alcohol lamp. Carefully clamp the knot and gently pull the thread out. There should be no bleeding, discharge and other phenomena. When suturing, the taut skin will slightly pop open, exposing the suture knife edge, there is a blood scab. Then dip the cotton swab in alcohol and gently wipe the wound, especially the thread hole. You have to be light. After 2 days, 3 times a day, alcohol swab can wipe the wound.

       In this way, you will be successful for the cat to a big hidden danger, the cat’s future will be more a happy guarantee!

       If your doctor does sutures without removing stitches for cats, basically, you just need to keep the wounds dry. If you want to go back to the hospital for stitching, you should not only pay attention to keep the wound dry, but also avoid the cat licking the wound and biting off the suture, You can bring a headgear to your cat (it’s available in the pet store. If you make it yourself if you’re smart, it may only take a week). Of course, the cat will not be able to adapt to it. Don’t be soft hearted and take it off. The mother cat’s wound can be removed in about a week. Even if the food is the same, there is no need for any supplements. The nutrition of the cat’s feed will be sufficient. If the cat’s wound is found to be wet all the time, Or the cat’s spirit is not good, we must take it to see a doctor.

       Do you want to change the crystal cat litter? I’m afraid that the dust of coagulating sand will do harm to the wound. Two of my family continue to use coagulated sand when ligating. You can listen to the doctor’s advice. Basically, my meow started to jump in three days. Although the doctor suggested that it would be better not to do so, he seemed to have recovered. At least it was his own feeling. But the wound was really good. It should take a week, because sometimes it would make the wound open, so we would close him first, hoping that he would not move too much

       One of the precautions is: 1. Don’t let him do strenuous exercise because it will crack the wound. 2. Pay attention not to let him lick the wound. Some kittens like to lick the wound, which makes the wound inflamed or worsen. This is a taboo. So some doctors will put protective covers on the kitten. It’s the Elizabeth King’s headgear Although many cats don’t like that because they don’t have the same weight as they walk, it’s difficult to eat and drink water, but it’s better to wear them first because my meow didn’t bring them before, so they licked the wound and bit off all the stitches. As a result, the wounds all grew pus, and the doctors only had to guess the sutures. Let his wound grow well, but his stomach had a hole. There was no suture It’s disgusting. I have to wipe it on him several times a day. It’s really a labor force. 3. Don’t touch water. The same reason is that the wound will become inflamed. 4. The diet should be as light as possible. It’s basically the same as people. If you have injuries, you should eat light food. 5. Don’t let them eat too much. It’s not superstition that cats will get fat after birth control This is true, until the wound is healed, do not have his idea of toning the body, lest the kitten is too fat and endanger health

       This stage takes about 3-5 hours. According to the cat’s physical fitness, the healthy cat wakes up faster. Some cats wake up an hour after surgery, while others sleep for a full day. What we can do when a cat is sleeping:

       1. Place the cat box in a quiet, warm place away from the sun. Guard by the side, don’t leave.

       2. Keep dropping eye drops, cotton swab will flow out of the eye drops clean.

       3. Observe the breathing, pulse and body temperature of the cat. In case of serious abnormality, contact the veterinary hospital in time. (cat’s pulse: 160-240 beats / min body temperature: 38-39 breaths: 20-30 beats / min)

       4. Pay attention to heat preservation. If it is low temperature season, put a warm water bag in the cat’s box. Pay attention to keep indoor ventilation and dry, but avoid direct wind blowing to cats and cats.

       c) Within 2 hours after awakening

       1. Wake up precursor: limbs dream like occasionally quiver, eyeball began to turn slowly, many times slowly try to close eyes.

       Once there are these actions, it proves that the cat is about to wake up. 2. Some cats will stagger around once they wake up. At this time, the anesthetic effect has not been completely dissipated. If the cat is not conscious, follow her closely to avoid injury and jumping with brute force. Especially for female cats, the ligation line may fall off and cause bleeding.

       Some cats wake up for a while and then go into a coma for a period of time. As long as the body temperature, pulse and breathing are normal, there is no problem.

       Male cats will urinate once after waking up. The amount is very large. Moreover, because of the effect of anesthetics, he often vaguely chooses the place where he will not urinate at ordinary times to solve the problem, such as on the bed or in the wardrobe. At this time, try not to intimidate him, and it is better to prevent and guide him. The urine of some cats and cats will be bloody and stained orange red, which should be normal. Closely observe the subsequent reactions.

       Soon after awakening, the female cat will resist the gauze dressing after operation, licking, biting and tearing. You can use small scissors to cut the parts that seriously hinder the cat’s movement, so as to alleviate the discomfort of the cat. We can consider wearing Elisabeth collar to the cat, but for those who are irritable and arrogant, this method is not advisable. We should try our best to keep the cat calm after surgery. You can also consider making cotton surgical clothes for cats to protect the knife edge. The operating clothes should be breathable and comfortable to avoid inflammation.

       For female surgical cats, the most important thing is to ensure that the knife edge is not infected or damaged before the stitching is removed. Do not remove the original bandage of the cat without authorization. You can put the self-made surgical suit on the outside to protect it.

       Because the ovaries and fallopian tubes of female cats are entangled with organs such as * *, once there is any mistake in the operation, the cat will not be able to urinate, and the consequences are unimaginable. So when your cat can pee, you can breathe a sigh of relief.

       d) Postoperative diet:

       It is suggested to buy formula tinned cats
