    STERILIZING YOUR CAT OR DOG: THE RIGHT THING TO DO

    CAT AND DOG STERILIZATION: THE RIGHT THING TO DO

    Decided to sterilize your cat or dog? Give yourself a pat on the back for being a responsible pet owner. Spaying and neutering reduces pet overpopulation and abandonment. It also saves you certain inconveniences from your cat going into heat, marking its territory, etc. Sterilization can also prevent infections and tumours of the uterus in females.

    CAT AND DOG STERILIZATION: HOW DOES IT WORK?

    Sterilization is a surgical procedure, so your pet will be under general anesthesia. To alleviate stress and pain and reduce the risks, our teams follow a strict process that includes anesthesia protocols, painkillers, and stress relief before, during, and after the operation and during your pet’s stay at the clinic.

    DURING THEIR STAY AT THE CLINIC

    Your pet will be pampered from the time they enter one of our veterinary clinics to the time they leave. They’ll receive a blanket, food, water, toys, and lots and lots of love! Basically, whatever they need to make their stay as comfortable as possible. Our team also makes sure to reduce sources of stress and anxiety by:

    • Choosing a spot for them in the cattery or kennel that fits their personality
    • Making sure they’re comfortable on the way to the operating room
    • Eliminating noise, odours, and other stimuli

    STERILIZATION, STEP BY STEP

    BEFORE SURGERY

    When you bring your cat or dog to the clinic the day before surgery, you’ll know they’re in the best possible hands: those of your Globalvet veterinary team. Cats are placed in a cage in the cattery and dogs are housed in a large cage or pen in the kennel.

    The team will do a preoperative checkup, including blood and urine analyses and a physical exam, to get a good idea of your pet’s overall condition. Anesthesia protocols can be adjusted based on their findings to ensure your pet’s safety. Your cat or dog will also be given painkillers to keep them comfortable.

    Have an anxious animal? Our teams are trained to administer calming products like anxiolytics to help them stay calm and speed up their recovery.

    DURING SURGERY

    Depending on their weight, age, and state of health, your cat or dog will be given a carefully calculated combination of anesthetics to ensure their safety and limit risks.

    When your pet wakes up, painkillers will again be administered to alleviate any postoperative pain.

    AFTER SURGERY

    Once the surgery is over, the veterinary team will take over, monitoring your furry friend’s vital signs as they’re coming out of anesthesia and making sure they’re doing well and have everything they need until you come to bring them home.

    AT WHAT AGE SHOULD YOUR CAT OR DOG BE STERILIZED?

    Great question! The ideal age for getting an animal fixed depends on the species (cat or dog), sex, and size. Why size? Because larger breed dogs, for example, have a longer growth period. So how do you know? Ask your veterinarian. They’ll tell you the best time to perform the operation based on these criteria.

    Having your cat or dog spayed or neutered early in life can help you avoid the hassles of heat and can even deliver certain health benefits, like preventing mammary tumours and other problems in female dogs.

    That said, it’s never too late to have your cat or dog sterilized—even when they’ve reached adulthood. At any stage of life, the procedure can prevent prostate problems in males, false pregnancies in females, and age-related issues in both sexes.
