Its not just about avoiding homeless puppies. When we spay a dog we surgically remove the ovaries and uterus. This prevents life-threatening uterine infections and eliminates the risk of ovarian and uterine cancer. If she is spayed before her first heat cycle (around 7-8 months age) we almost eliminate the risk of mammary tumors (breast cancer). Half of these tumors are malignant in dogs, and surgery is required to have a chance of cure. Spaying your dog may save her life.
After she is given an injection and falls asleep, she is given a tracheal tube to breath through and provided with inhalation anesthetic and oxygen for the duration of the surgery. The surgical sight is shaved and scrubbed three times with a surgical disinfectant. The surgeon’s hands are thoroughly scrubbed, plus sterile single use gloves are worn. The surgeon also wears a sterile gown, cap, and mask. Your dog’s belly is draped off to prevent contamination. A sterilized surgery pack contains all the necessary instruments. The muscle and skin are sutured in several layers after the surgery.
