Hi everyone.......
Promised to post these photos after Dahlias laser spay.
She also had 4 baby canine teeth pulled that had huge roots
and would not have come out on their own.They would have
ruined her bite so we pulled them all.I was in surgery and recovery
with her the whole time.She is 7 mos old and being unbred her uterus
was only the size of a dime! I kept waiting for him to pull a plum size
uterus out but he said "well there it is".It looked like a tiny piece of tissue!
Im like "what??'.She was so good not even fighting the gas or crying.
Afterwards we moved to a waiting room where I stroked and talked to
her for 5 mins when she came out of the gas effects.
She just rolled her eyes up to see me and crawled into my arms to be cuddled.
She didnt whimper or whine once.
Twenty minutes later she could stand and walk so we went home.
She was able to eat scrambled eggs 2 hrs post op and moistened kibble by evening.
She had no drugs for pain just some homeopathic remedy he
bathed the incision site with.Also there are no stitches to remove.
Well 24 hrs post op she is herself again!! The incision is barely visible.
She can walk and play as before.She went pee and poo this morning fine.
Only after effect is a raspy voice/dry throat from the tube down her throat.
I cannot reccomend enough this high tech spay procedure!!
Urge your vet to update to this technology as it is also used for cancer treatment and other things.
It was not that expensive either.
It cost me $145 plus the anestetic!
I am so glad I did this for her and gave her the gift of a stress free life as my loving companion.
See her photos below:

Best wishes,Dahlias MaMa

Immediately after returning home post op


Canines with huge roots


Closeup 24 hrs post op


Its barely visible!


Dahlia back to herself in 24 hrs!

She looks FANTASTIC!!! Great pics and I'm so glad the laser spay worked so well for her. I wish more vets would get the equipment to do it as it's so much easier on them. How neat that you were able to stay with her!

Thanks everyone for the kind words!
Dahlia is her sweet, demure self again.
The Lord heard her chi friends prayers and she
couldnt have had a more perfect experience.
Our vet is very experienced with small and exotic
animals also so a 3 lb chi was easy he said!! LOL.

Nobody in town does laser, but I'm impressed. Not only on how "neat" the area is but on the price. We pay right at that for an old fashioned spay.

i had lexie done by laser, using key hole surgery, it was amazing and id recommend to anyone to do it over traditional.

I had to travel nearly 3 hours to a vet that did it but i'd do it again if i needed to.

glad dahlia is ok xx

Laser is the way to go! I had my husband's little, bitty poodle spayed and they used the laser and she healed in what seemed like 2 days. You can't see a scar now at all (and that was about 7 years ago) and she never had any problems. I'm just impressed that your vet let you stay, I think that helps too along with lighter anaesthesia.
