Well, the time has come for Jill to come in for her neutering operation which is called spaying. So, she’s coming to the surgery today and we’re going to carry that out and I’m just going to go through the process that your cat would go through when you’ve 0:12 to be neutered.
So, first thing that happened to Jill when she came in about an hour ago – she was wade but then she was given a premed injection. This is just a sedative which makes her, as you can see, kind of a bit sleepy and ready now for her full anesthetic. So, we’ll just wake her up and take her through. Come on, Jill. Here you go. Alright, you can see just looking at her eyes that she’s zonked out already.
… down to the uterus. And what the operation is going to do is just remove her uterus and ovaries to prevent her having kittens. Can I have some 2:08, please? Thank you. And I’m just going to tie off the ovaries with this bit of 2:28. It’s a very quick operation, very simple and most vets would have done it hundreds and hundreds of times. And it only takes about 7 or 8 minutes.
Hand over the nylon please? And the final part of the operation is just to put some stitches in the skin and she’s ready to wake up. Right, there she is. Finished operations; a little bit sleepy. Now we’ll pop her in there through the cover and within about 20 minutes or so, she’ll be up and bouncing around again. Perhaps she’ll take it easy for a few days at home and then she’ll have the stitches out after about 10 days and she’ll be back to normal. I hope she forgives me for it.
Well, it’s the afternoon now and Jill’s come around very well for anesthetic. She’s feeling a little bit sore and a little bit miserable. She’s going to home and recuperate now and when you take your cat home after they’ve been neutered, it’s important that they take it very easy in the evening. They need to go home and maybe have a little bit of very light food but all they really do is sleep. And then you need to keep them in over the next few days with not actually running around, jumping up balls and things because that could just damage the stitches. Then, after 10 days, we’ll have to stitches out and then they could be pretty much back to normal. So, Jill’s going to go home for about a hour and a half and then in a week or so, she’ll be back terrorizing the neighborhood mice and birds and things.
