Your pet has been anaesthetized for the surgery. It takes a few hours to wake up. Because the body temperature of the cat drops during anaesthesia, it should rest in a warm and safe place, where it will not hurt itself while waking up.
“Accidents” may occur, because after narcosis the sphincters of the bowels and bladder may not be fully functional and the animal may be unable to control itself. Therefore, the animal should be placed somewhere where these accidents do not cause problems.
The wound has not been stitched, so there is no need for stitch removal. Your pet has received long-acting pain medicine and antibiotic injections. There is no need for medication at home.
Food and water should only be offered when the animal is fully awake, so food or water does no go “down the wrong pipe.”
The animal should be kept indoors during the surgery day. It can go out normally the following day.
