Dorothy Maleary, a 4 year old Jack Russell Terrier has been a patient of ours since she was a puppy. Dorothy is generally fit and well and we see her for routine boosters and yearly check-ups.

Just recently her owners decided that the time was right for them to have Dorothy spayed. Neutering female dogs is a procedure that is considered to be very important for the future welfare of the bitch as they mature. It is especially important if you do not intend to breed from your bitch. Although spaying is a surgical procedure that involves a general anaesthetic it is regarded as routine. The risk of a number of serious condition should a bitch not be spayed is far greater than the operation.


So Dorothy was admitted into the hospital to have her surgery. Dorothy was a delightful patient she really enjoyed all the fussing and attention. The surgery went well with no complications. The picture above shows Dorothy receiving lots of well-deserved TLC following her surgery. The moment was just too sweet to miss; Penny thankfully caught it on camera.


Later that day Dorothy was discharged into the care of her owners. After a couple of days rest and relaxation she was fully recovered.
