Learn what it means sterilization and castration to help make the decision.
The process and effects
It is a type of operation where the veterinarian removes reproductive organs of animals. Males – the testicles (castration), and in females – ovaries and uterus (sterilization). Hormonal changes are transient and usually there are no major changes in the behavior of the animals. The only thing changed is the fact that those animals who are wilder will now be a lot more calmer..
Many believe that this is a good decision if you do not intend to keep animals for breeding.
There are more benefits: in females reduces the possibility of getting cancer which can lead to the death of the animal, it prevents the emergence of the so-called psychological pregnancy, it is particularly preferred to be done before the animal completed 1 year of age.
In the male castration it leads to a reduction of aggression, urinating and marking territory usually disappears, reduced anxiety and a habit to attack other animals, people or even furniture, males become much quieter, and the risk of many diseases is also being reduced.
It should be noted that the animal will still have its own character, it will defend themselves if they are being attacked. No matter what you do, the instincts are there and they always will be.
In general, the animals do not change, but usually the owner. It is more favorable to the animal, because the owner feels a certain kind of guilt because the animal had to go through a surgery.
Preparation and sterilization or castration
The most important thing is to arrange the details with your vet and prepare the animal for the surgery. The veterinarian usually advises that the animal should not be given anything to eat – for example, if the operation is in the morning, the animal should be hungry for at least 20 hours. This doesn’t apply to water. They are allowed to drink water as much as they want to. It is very important that the animals do not eat anything before surgery to avoid complications. This does not apply to small animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs.
Animals are usually still under anesthesia when you get to see them after surgery, so they must be covered with a blanket and left in a quiet and dark place to awaken. Even then they should not be given any food or water. Permission is granted only when the animal is fully awake. Also, the need to prevent the animal from making sudden moves it is recommended to protect the wound. Sometimes they put band – aid on the wound and the stitches are removed after 8-10 days.
