Cat sterile not only aims to control the cat population by preventing it from breeding, but also benefits the cat's health and behaviour.
Some of the benefits of cat castration
1. Prevent cats from wandering and fighting
One of the benefits of cat castration is to control aggressive behaviour related to hormones. Cats that are not neutered generally have a strong urge to roam away from home in search of other cats to breed, especially during the mating season.
2. Reduce the habit of spraying or spraying urine
Once cats are neutered or sterilised, they tend to behave well and not be aggressive. For example, male cats most likely no longer mark their territory by spraying urine around the house.
3. Prevent certain diseases
In cats, castration is beneficial for preventing testicular cancer, prostate problems, and reducing the spread of diseases caused by viral infections, such as the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV).
Cat Castration Procedure
1. The vet will put the cat to sleep on the operating table by giving him sedative and anaesthetic injections. The doctor will also give painkillers.
2. After that, the doctor will start sterilising the part of the cat's body to be dissected.
3. In male cats, two small incisions are made on each side of the testicular sac (scrotum), so that each testicle can be cut or removed.
4. In female cats, an incision is made in the abdomen, so the ovaries and uterus can be tied and removed.
5. After the cat's reproductive organs are removed, the doctor will stitch the incision wound and close the wound
