If you are planning on having your cat or dog spayed or neutered, you need to make sure that you are ready to take care of your pet after the procedure. It will take your pet about two weeks to completely heal from this procedure
Limit Their Activity
One of the most important things you can do after your pet is spayed or neutered is limit their activity. Being spayed or neutered is a very physical invasive process that requires proper healing time, which means limiting activities.
Depending on your pet, this may require more or less intervention on your part. Your pet may just want to sleep and rest after the procedure. However, if your pet still wants to be really active, keep them in their crate or keep them in a smaller room or space so they can't be too active. When you take your pet outside, keep them on a leash so you can control their movement and activity.
Don't Bath Your Pet
You should not bathe your pet right after their procedure. If you bathe them too soon after their surgery, washing your pet could actually introduce bacteria to the surgery site. Wait until your vet says you can wash your pet.
If your pet is really dirty or smells, and you just need to clean them, use water-less shampoo instead. However, if you can put up with the smell, wait until your pet's body has healed enough to handle a bath.
Use A Collar
You should get a collar for your pets. It is going to be natural for your pet to want to lick and pick at the injury site from their surgery. This is not going to be helpful for your pet's healing process though. The best way to keep your pet from licking at the injury site is by asking for a soft collar to use on your pet while they heal. You want to protect the surgery site.
Check The Incision
Finally, make sure that you check on the incision site at least twice a day. Make sure that the stitches are in place. Make sure that there is not any prolonged swelling or discharge coming from the incision site. If something seems off, get your pet to the vet right away.
If you are interested in spay and neuter services, make sure that you are ready to take care of your pet after the procedure. You are going to need to keep a collar on your pet and limit their movement for two weeks. You are also going to need to check on their incisions at least twice a day and seek help if you notice the stitches are coming out right away.
