1. Strictly follow the recommendations of a veterinarian.
The word veterinary technician – it’s the law. Follow the advice and do not self-medicate. If your doctor has prescribed cat antibiotics, give her antibiotics, and exactly as many days as necessary, even if you think that the pet is feeling better. All assignments must be observed – it depends on the success of rehabilitation.
2. Monitor the condition of the pet.
Possibly take a vacation for the first few days after surgery. A relaxed cat will need your help and careful monitoring of temperature, chair, seams, etc. on hand must be always phone veterinarian. In the case of worsening or if you have any questions be sure to contact him.
3. Handle the seams.
Recommendations for treatment of joints be sure to provide a veterinary specialist. Hygiene must be maintained, so as not to provoke inflammation.
The wound in any case can not be treated with iodine or brilliant green: it will cause a burn. Usually, veterinarians recommend chlorhexidine or a solution of Vetericyn – powerful and absolutely safe antiseptic. By the way, they are applied painlessly.
4. Don’t let the cat to lick the stitches.
The cat must not be allowed to lick the stitches, or they will become inflamed and will not heal. Cover “access” to the joints with a cloth or a special collar.
5. Arrange for cat the perfect place to relax.
During the day after surgery, the cat may be disturbed coordination, because the effect of the anesthesia will still hold. So she fell and didn’t hurt me, make her calm and warm place on the floor, away from drafts, doors, and appliances. The same applies to debilitated Pets. If your cat is not yet Mature, it is desirable to put on high surfaces (bed, chair, etc.).
Also after surgery in cats temperature is lowered. The task of the owner – not to allow the pet to freeze. Help make this blanket and warm soft bed with sides.
6. Restoring the immune system!
A nutritious diet gives the body strength to recover. A special diet for the cat will appoint a veterinary specialist.
To accelerate the process of rehabilitation enter the diet special prebiotic drinks (Viyo Recuperation). Prebiotics has already proven themselves in the treatment of people as an effective means to strengthen the immune system and more recently are also made for dogs and cats. Besides strengthening immunity, they positively affect the intestines. Prebiotics stimulate the contraction of its walls, which is very important in the postoperative period. The anesthesia causes atony (slow movement of the intestine), leading to constipation. If the operation cavity, in the early days of pet painful to push, and constipation cause great discomfort. Prebiotics work it out.
Ensure clean drinking water has always been pet-free.
During the rehabilitation period animal need rest. It should not be disturbed by other pets, children, loud noises and other stimuli. Rest and sleep – the most important steps to recovery.
9. To care for the cat should the owner.
After the surgery weakened pet experiences stress and sometimes even fear, and may behave inappropriately. Communication is not what he requires at this stage. Preferably as little as possible to disturb the cat, and care to entrust to one person to whom she trusts most of all.
10. Limit physical activity.
For the first time after surgery physical activity is contraindicated in cats. Over time, the life of the pet will once again be active and energetic. But how quickly this should happen and at what pace – will tell a veterinary specialist.
Be careful and take care of their Pets. We wish them a speedy correction!
