How do you heal radial nerve damage in cats?
1. You apply a topical anesthetic. 2. One of the nerves is cut open in the cat with a scissors. Then you apply a numbing agent, such as neosporine or anestream. Some topical anesthetics are used to numb small areas such as the legs or the face, whereas anesthetic solutions that contain solvents often numb larger areas such as the chest, abdomen, and legs.
How can I keep my cat calm during surgery?
Cats with nerve damage can often be aggressive, and a gentle reassurance can help calm a cat who may be very anxious. Try keeping a cup of cold water nearby and placing it near the cat's head to avoid causing skin irritation.
Cats should be encouraged to drink ice water during surgery to stop dehydration. Try feeding them plenty of fresh water rather than ice, as this will prevent them from taking liquid into the lungs to flush the bacteria out.
