Desexing a female dog

Berry Haven Veterinary Group Surgical Case

Blossom, a 2 year old female Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was presented for desexing after having had a litter a few months earlier.

To ensure good blood pressure to her kidneys during the anaesthetic, we placed her on an IV drip. She was induced with Alfaxan IV then placed onto 2% Isoflurane gas.

A midline incision was made and the uterus removed after tying off both ovarian stumps, followed by the uterus just above the cervix.

Blossom was given a long acting antibiotic injection and a pain killer (Meloxicam). At a post op check 3 days later the wound looked great and she was very bright and alert. The wound healed very well and stitches were taken out 10 days after the surgery
