Hi Everyone,

I recently had Rosie spayed and thought this would be a good place the share the photo, I think she looks quite funny and I was surprised to see that her skin is as spotty as her fur....

Get uploading pictures of you cats looking a little sorry for themselves after vets treatment...

Hey Luke.. yes I was surprised to see Raven's spotty skin also.
She was spayed early December and there is STILL hardly any fur growth... it's taking AGES to come back :shock:
I'm a bit worried coz she has a buster collar on due to over-grooming a patch her leg... it seems I'll have to keep the collar on for ages at her fur-growth rate :cry:

When I got my girl spayed about 10 years ago they shaved her tummy. When did they start doing it on their side?

I've never seen the side spay thingy and my most recent cat was spayed a few months ago. I scoured the web and came across this:

Flank Spay

A flank spay is when a kitten has an incision made on her flank, half-way down the side from the spine after receiving general anesthesia. This type of spay procedure is usually done on cats that are lactating since the incision is out of the way of mammary glands.

It may be easier for the owner of the kitten to monitor the incision as the cat will not have to be handled. The incision is more visible since it is on the top part of the kitten's body.

The disadvantages of a flank spay is that it is sometimes harder to tell if a cat has been previously spayed or not. A veterinarian will need to have more precision during a flank spay since dropped vessels, ovaries or the uterus are harder to retrieve. It is also harder for a veterinarian to do a thorough examination of the kitten's abdomen during a flank spay.

Abdominal Spay

An abdominal spay is when an incision is made in the middle of a kitten's belly. Abdominal, or midline, spays also require a kitten to undergo anesthesia. The incision made goes through the skin and muscles of the abdomen, and the ovaries and uterus are then located. The correct arteries and veins are then found and ligated-tied off. The uterine body is also ligated. The ovaries and uterus are then removed. Before the veterinarian sutures the incision, he or she will check the abdomen to make sure there is no abnormal bleeding.

Diablo after surgery, not after spaying but after his luxating patella surgery, I think they shaved way too much of his beautiful fur and it is still growing back but his surgery was in November. He hasn't got any spots on his skin but after the fur grew just a tiny bit the spots came :P. I thought his fur would never grow back near the spine :P he was still naked there when his legs where covered in fur :P but then it started to grow there too so now he is covered but the fur has to grow alot still :).

Your puddy tat is a lot like mine in that she is a dark spotted Bengal, I find a lot of Bengal owners go for the immediately obvious rosetted cats but I've found the dark spotted cats to be just that little bit more wild in their nature and their glitter to be a bit more obvious.

Hi everyone!

I cracked up at the title of this topic, (sick mind at work here!) Anyway, it reminded me of a cartoon that I saw recently,
so I thought I would share it with you, even if it does have dogs in it.


Image

Gotta say, I've never seen a spay done thru the side... not sure I like it... definitely don't like the amount of shaved area.
Oh well, I hope you enjoyed the cartoon.
