Yesterday morning we were overwhelmed with emergencies and sick pets. Therefore, I have a little show and tell for you.
This little one decided to try and eat a fish hook.
This requires a short acting or reversible anesthetic and then pushing the hook on through the way it was originally headed.
The next dog was an 8 year old intact female coonhound with a suspicious vaginal discharge and a white blood cell count through the roof. Surgery confirmed the diagnosis of a pyometra. In fact, with this being an 85 lb dog it was a pretty spectacular example.
This picture is actually from today but it cracks me up. This guy is waking up from a neuter and looks pretty hungover!
