Abstract

In the article results of examinations got in case of surgical accesses through the flank and ventral wall of the stomach’s implementation on purpose to the cats’ ovariohysterectomy are given. The research work was carried out on healthy sexually-mature cats. Surgeries were done in the upper third of the right flank abdominal wall and in the behind the umbilical zone. The cross-cut on the boundary of groin and illium area in the direction from the hook-bone’s front border to the fourth nipple of the mammary gland of the appropriate side was applied on the side abdominal wall. It is established that in case of the accomplishment of cat’s ovariohysterectomy with the use of suggested surgical access through the side abdominal wall a duration of an operation and a period of healing are in line with those which are in case of application of median laparotomy. It is proved that the surgical access with the cross-cut done in the upper third of the right flank abdominal wall and on the boundary of groin and illium area in case of cat’s ovariohysterectomy secure better opportunities for the fulfillment of the surgical method than the median one. It is also noted that in case of cat’s ovariohysterectomy the surgical access through the upper third of the right flank abdominal wall with the cut in the direction from the hook-bone’s front border to the fourth nipple of the mammary gland of the appropriate side could be recommended as an alternative of an access through the middle line of the stomach.
