They're just so cute!! When Kiba got spayed it got all red and inflamed and she ju st felt like crap. Got her some pain pills and she was good as new. LOL. We wanted to stop giving her the pills cuz she was just EVIL!! (BTW I'd never do that to a dog anyways).
I'll do my best describing what happens at our office. I am not a vet, so this will be a very basic explanation.
The dog is placed under general anesthesia and intubated. A small incision is made, just above the scrotum. The testicles are then pushed up through the opening. The ligaments and the spermatic cord are clamped and sutured where they are cut. Once the testicles are removed, the incision is sutured closed.
During every procedure that I have seen, there is very limited bleeding. The whole procedure is very quick.
I should also add that at least at most clinics, surgery is done just like any surgery at human hospitals. The animals are on monitors, and watched carefully. The environment is sterile and all instruments are sterile.
Somehow... I think that they might have preferred cake and ice cream... lol! They look so sweet! It's always a bittersweet thing... you know you're doing the "right" thing - but it's hard to put oyur babies under the knife!
Hey, they got the same thing Cooper & Tucker got for their 6 month birthdays, except it was two neuters for us! They didn't wear e-collars either, but Tucker sure had to after the surgery to remove his histiocytoma.
