Behind the Scenes in the Operating Room During a Spay Procedure
Written by: Elizabeth L. DeLomba, DVM
You stand at the counter signing forms, and the staff member of the veterinary hospital takes the leash out of your hands. The tears well up despite the fact that you know that your sweet Daisy will be fine.

Watching your pet disappear into the back room of the veterinary hospital for a spay or ovariohysterectomy is frightening primarily because you have no idea what happens once your trusted companion enters that \"twilight zone.\" Even though you trust your veterinarian and the staff, you wonder what exactly is being done to your pet.

Well, as a practicing veterinarian for many years, I can tell you exactly what happens once those doors swing shut.
Describes prep, operative procedure, and post-op.
