Spay and neutering services for Cats and Dogs. We are conveniently located in Kitsilano.

About the Procedure

With a traditional spay, an incision is made into the abdomen in order for the surgeon to be able to access the uterus and ovaries. This incision needs to be large enough for the surgeon to visualize organs at the back of the abdominal cavity and reach their hand in to retrieve them. The ovaries are then loosened from their attachments to the body wall, their vessels ligated, and are removed. The incision in the abdomen is closed with several layers of suture. Because there has been a large incision through the abdominal musculature, there is often some degree of swelling and discomfort associated with the procedure. Exercise is restricted for several weeks.
