How To Prepare Your Cat For Surgery

How To Prepare Your Cat For Surgery

A cat may need to undergo surgery either due to a disease or injury. You might be anxious about the procedure as a cat owner, especially if your pet has not undergone the procedure before. At Avalon Animal Clinic in Indianapolis, we completely understand your concerns for your cat.

Our veterinarian will ensure that your pet is comfortable before, during, and after the procedure. We will explain everything about the procedure to help you remain calm throughout the entire process.

How Should You Prepare Your Cat Before Surgery?

Your veterinarian will advise you on the adjustments you should make just before the pet surgery. This includes what and when you should feed the cat. If there is any drug you should give them, the veterinarian will let you know. Make sure your cat stays indoors to prevent it from feeding while outside. If there are people in your house, inform them about the adjustments too.

Taking Your Cat for Surgery

Make sure you arrive at the clinic on time. The veterinarian will need time to conduct various tests in preparation for the procedure. Ensure you leave your contact there so that the veterinarian can inform you of any development and on when to pick your pet.

Caring for Your Cat After Surgery

After the pet surgery, your cat will stay in the clinic for some days. When you pick them, you will be advised on the post-surgery care you should practice before they fully heal. You will be administering various medications to your pet and maybe feed them on a special diet. Follow the instructions given by the veterinarian and ask them questions in case something is not clear.
