Tips You Should Know As A Cat Owner: Learn How To Properly Sterilize Your Feline (2021)


Learn how to properly sterilize your four-legged friend.

Once every four months, your cat begins to loyally look into the eyes of all men, while gracefully arching its back, and the dog simply loses its mind at the sight of its fellow tribe? The pills do not help, and you are not going to set up a nursery at home …

Time “X”

Then, perhaps, it is worth saving your nerves, your neighbors, and the four-legged pets themselves, and think about sterilization (or castration, as this procedure is called, if we are talking about males). There is nothing wrong with this operation. If it is carried out in a good clinic with an experienced veterinarian, then the health of the animal will not be harmed in the slightest. On the contrary, after such an operation your pet will live longer, become much calmer, and will not suffer from diseases of the reproductive system. And in females, after sterilization, the risk of breast tumors is reduced. If you decide to rid your pet of love boredom once and for all, keep in mind: you can carry out the operation only after the cat or kitty turns 7 months old, the dog – two years old. You should not postpone this procedure for a long time, especially when it comes to cats: the older the purr becomes, the stronger the reflex takes root in him, as a result of which, during love frenzy, he begins to mark corners. Doctors say that, for example, only a miracle can wean a five-year-old cat from this habit, but surgery is powerless here. And the operation performed on a 5-6-year-old dog will no longer contribute to the prevention of oncological diseases.

Remove “excess”

Before the operation, animals under the age of 2 years undergo a regular veterinary examination, they have their temperature measured. But for their older brothers, the doctor may prescribe an ultrasound of the internal organs and a blood test. In addition, some clinics require the animal to be vaccinated and treated for worms. All animals, without exception, should not be given food 12 hours before surgery.

During the operation, the testicles are removed from the male scrotum without touching any other organs. For females – either only the ovaries (this can only be done by nulliparous animals), or the ovaries and uterus. The postoperative suture is usually located either in the middle of the abdomen or on the side. The second option is considered less traumatic for the animal, since the internal organs do not press on the wound and it heals faster.

The only complication that can arise after surgery is excess weight. Reason: Sterilized animals are less mobile, and since they consume less energy, you need to carefully monitor their diet. Experts advise to simply reduce the daily portion. In all other respects, your favorite (or favorite) will remain the same as before: the opinion A that after sterilization animals become depressed and unhappy is nothing more than a myth.
