Viewer discretion advised. Oh, did you already see the photo?
Well, I am a veterinarian, so at some point you are bound to see something like this!
Anyway, I just wanted to say, I performed my largest dog spay.
In the interest of confidentiality all you get to see is the internal organs.
She was a mature dog at just over a year of age, and over 100 lbs. This was the largest uterus I have taken out that wasn't diseased. It took me a long time, and a lot of ligation of pedicles, checking the gutters for bleeding, and even making more ligatures more for my peace-of-mind as that last thing I wanted was a post-operative complication. It's taken be almost 3 years in general practice to get to this point. Obviously I do not get enough surgery practice! These last two practices have had gentlemen that prefer surgery over appointments and they steal all the surgeries. Well, not quite, they get more surgery days than I do anyway.
I just wanted to be proud of myself for getting this done on my own!
