Instructions For Sterilization Clinic Participants

The night before surgery:

1. Make sure you can easily catch your cat for transport to the clinic location; you may want to keep your cat in a spare room or bathroom overnight, with a litter box, of course.

2. No food or water after 9:00 pm the night before surgery. (Young kittens under 3 months of age may have water and a very small amount of food available overnight to prevent anemia).

3. If your cat or kitten is showing symptoms of illness (lethargy, sneezing, nasal or eye discharge or diarrhea) please do NOT bring them to the clinic. Call the contact # provided to let us know and please take your cat or kitten to a veterinary clinic for treatment!

Post-surgery:

1. Please keep your cat or kitten quiet in a separate room for at least 24 hours after surgery. Do not allow them to jump or play with other pets or children to avoid ripping sutures open.

2. Offer water and a small amount of food, if they are showing interest and are fully alert.

3. Inspect the surgery area - especially on spays(females) - for any signs of redness, swelling, oozing or suture damage and contact the follow-up veterinarian immediately for instruction or examination.

4. Avoid exposing the surgical incision to dirt or moisture for at least 2 weeks and do not bathe your cat or kitten during this time (if that is something you do).

5. Watch your cat or kitten for signs of lethargy and make sure they are eating and drinking normally. They should be back to almost normal the following morning.
