The worst thing is already behind, the operation was successful, left only to move away from anesthesia and enjoy life. But will the cast catched be as playful, restless, as castration, or will it just eat, sleep and recover? Let's try to understand how the removal of theof the testicles will affect the behavior of the pet, whether something or everything will change, as before.
Immediately after surgery
In the first hours after coming home from a veterinary clinic, the cat will deviate from anesthesia. It is important to follow the doctor's recommendations during this period and keep track of your favorite. Approximately 5-6 hours, the pupil will begin to mournfully hide - this is, most likely, a sign that the anesthesia ceased to act and the cat started "scrubs", which manifest headaches. Do not worry - you just have to endure this period and give the cat more attention, surround him with care and affection, show your favorite toys and try to talk with him. Oddly enough, but the voice of the host calms the animal. Of course, only if the same host did not attend the operation and did not hold the cat in the quotes.
4-5 days after the operation of a pet will be shocked by the fact that before there was something like a tail, but now it is not. This state will go by itself, but you do not need to throw everything on the gravity. You need to play with the cat, give it more attention and support everything.
Life in the future
There is a myth that the cat becomes less cheerful and playful like Garfield without lasagna in the movie of the same name. But this is not the case. More precisely, the scientists have not yet succeeded in noticing any statistical laws between a decrease in mood and castration. It is noticed that the cat, does not feel sexual attraction, becomes more focused on his relationship with a person and is more admired with toys and various games. After castration, the character of the cat becomes more calm and balanced, aggression is reduced, but apatity does not manifest. Moreover, it is castrated pets easier and better to be trained, as we wrote in this article.
There is an opinion that after a castration in a cat, problems with a digestive tract( gastrointestinal tract) begin to develop. But simple logical thinking makes it clear that these two bodies are not completely connected. Here, the maniacal care of the owners appears rather, they want to "drown" the grief of their pet in the abundance of tasty and fatty food, which, in fact, leads to diseases of the SLEE-intestinal tract. After castration, there is virtually no chance of picking up a cat's leukemia, a peritonitis or an immunodeficiency virus, as well as all sexually transmitted infections.
Castro cats lose their desire for vagrancy, which greatly reduces the likelihood of getting into a car or into unprofitable people. After the removal of the testes, cats may suffer from overweight and obesity. The metabolism is slowed down, because the cat spends much less energy than consumes, which leads to overweight. Therefore, it is important not to overeat your pet, to adhere to a special diet for castrated cats or to use a special feed intended specifically for cats. Be sure to monitor the volume of portions!
