How Is Neutering Performed in Female Cats? Post-Operation Care. Sterilization Fees


Neutering female cats is a common practice in the veterinary field. The neutering procedure is a surgical procedure to remove the female cat's reproductive ability. This procedure is performed by a veterinarian.

Neutering female cats comes with several important advantages. These are:

  • Population Control: Neutering helps keep the number of stray animals under control by preventing unwanted offspring from being born.

  • Health Benefits: The risk of uterine infection (pyometra) is reduced in spayed female cats. It also reduces the likelihood of certain reproductive organ diseases, such as breast cancer.

  • Reduction of Behavioral Problems: Neutering helps prevent some behavioral problems that can occur in female cats due to infertility. For example, excessive yowling (meowing) and misbehavior tendencies that occur during mating period are reduced in unneutered female cats.

Neutering is usually done when female cats are between 6 and 9 months old, although some veterinarians may do this at an earlier or later age. It is important to pay attention to the veterinarian's instructions for the cat to rest and recover after the operation.

Neutering is important for the health of female cats and the general animal welfare of the community. If you have a cat and would like more information about neutering, it would be best to talk to your local veterinarian.

How To?

Neutering a female cat is a surgical operation performed by a veterinarian. The process usually includes the following steps:

  • Anesthesia: General anesthesia is applied so that the cat relaxes and does not feel pain. The cat is put to sleep under anesthesia and becomes unconscious during the operation.

  • Cut: The veterinarian makes a small cut in the cat's abdomen. This incision is used to reach the uterus and ovaries.

  • Removal of the Uterus: The veterinarian removes the uterus. This process terminates the functions of the uterus and eliminates the risk of uterine infection.

  • Removal of the Ovaries: The ovaries are the organs that produce the cat's reproductive hormones. The veterinarian removes the ovaries and sterilizes the cat.

  • Closing the Incision: The incision is closed with sutures or closable stitches. This allows the cat to heal the wound.

Operation time is usually short and the cat is expected to wake up within a few hours. During the healing process, it is important to follow the instructions given by the veterinarian. These instructions may include wound cleaning, the use of pain medication, and activity limitations.

Your local veterinarian will be the best source to learn more about your cat's neutering process and to learn more about the procedure.

Post-Operation Care

After your female cat has been neutered, your veterinarian will give you some instructions on the recovery process. Here are some general points to consider:

  • Rest and Recovery: Your cat may feel a little dizzy after the operation. It is important to maintain a calm environment when returning home. Prepare a comfortable place for your cat and ensure that it is not exposed to too much activity. The healing process can usually range from a few days to a few weeks.

  • Wound Care: Your veterinarian will provide instructions regarding your cat's wound care. You may need to keep the incision clean and dry. If necessary, you can use the antiseptic solution recommended by your veterinarian. Your cat should try not to touch the wound area.

  • Pain Management: It is normal for your cat to experience mild pain or discomfort after the operation. Your veterinarian will give you information about pain relievers or their prescriptions. It is important to ensure that your cat regularly uses the medications given to relieve pain.

  • Food and Water: Your cat's appetite may decrease slightly after the operation. Your veterinarian will make recommendations about your cat's diet. He'll likely recommend serving small, easy-to-digest meals and making sure your cat drinks enough water.

  • Kittens or Other Pets: If you have kittens or other pets in your home, it's important to keep them separate during your cat's recovery. Letting your cat rest in a calm and stress-free environment can speed up the healing process.

  • Checkups and Stitch Removal: Your veterinarian will set a schedule for post-operative checkups and removal of stitches. Following these checks regularly will ensure that your cat is recovering well.

In the period after your cat has been neutered, it is important to carefully follow your veterinarian's instructions. If you have any problems or concerns, it would be best to contact your veterinarian.

Caterine Fees

The cost of neutering may vary depending on veterinary clinics, geographic location, and the cat's age, health and weight. Generally, sterilization procedures are one of the routine procedures performed in veterinary clinics.

Fees can vary, often depending on the complexity of the operation, the type of anesthesia used, the size of the cat, and local pricing. Also, some veterinary clinics may offer packages or health plans to offer neutering at more affordable prices.

To get the most accurate information, it's best to contact your local veterinary clinic and ask for a quote for the neutering procedure. Veterinary clinics can provide you with more information about the procedure and an estimated cost.
