These notes are intended as a guide to post operative care of cats that have been spayed at Gordon Vet Hospital. They should not replace the recommendations of your regular veterinarian.

For more information on why we spay cats and some information regarding the procedure please click here.

Care of your cat after Spaying

Your cat has been spayed through an incision in her abdomen. This procedure involves internal surgery and therefore needs care for sometime after the event. Unfortunately cats do not always understand that they must rest so we need you to assist us with her recovery.

Immediately After

When you pick your cat up from Gordon Vet Hospital she may be a little drowsy. This is quite normal following an anaesthetic and surgery. The drowsiness should reduce over the next 24 hours. There will be some bruising as in humans. Please keep her in a quiet, warm place and give only small amounts to eat and drink for the next 24 hours. Please administer medication as directed on the label.

Take Care

Most Cats have recovered fully within a few days. Unfortunately the disadvantage of this is that your cat may start jumping and running around!  Please try to keep her as quiet as possible for seven days after the surgery.  The sutures will need to come out 10-14 days after surgery. Note: If there are no external sutures; they are all under the skin.  Please make an appointment for 3-4 days time so that we can check the surgical site. 

Problems

Generally there are very few complications after the operation, however some signs to watch for that may indicate a problem are:

  1. Dull and listless (especially after the first 24 hours)
  2. Red or irritated around the surgical area
  3. Swelling or lumpiness around the surgical site

If you have any questions or are concerned, please Gordon Vet Hospital anytime on 9498 3000.

Absolutely love the service here. I switched from other Vets to this Vet as the staff here are quite attentive and really care about your furry baby! I have basically seen most of the Dr's here and all of them so far have been fantastic, friendly and fun to speak with! Easy to locate and enough parking available! 5 Stars indeed!

We found a stray, agitated dog in front of our house last night. We phoned but got no help from the Council ranger who gave two options: tie him up in front yard overnight or "let him loose, he'll find his own way home" :( So we phoned Gordon Vet: they stayed open a few minutes so we could run him up and he could have a bed and dinner. Thank you Gordon Vet Hospital, hope he gets home soon!!! :)
