August 27, 2012

I was plan to spay my ViVi long time ago but always canceled because of some incident happened, This time the surgery also delay to the next day due to emergency case happened in the vet and they are not suggested to do surgery for her in a short time. 

At her age of 1,i was always thinking wanna keep her generations but i can't take care of all her baby, to give people? who knows is she/he a pets lover? If she/he is pets lover now,who knows will they change their mind in the future? Rare a dog,is a whole life promise and responsible to them,are they afford to bear this heavy promises?

To sell? NO!!!!! I am not going to sell puppies in my life as i thought selling puppies is same with selling babies, it's really a bad thing!!!

With her age of 2, i knew a lots of information about good or bad of spaying/neutering, if you are asking the reasons to spay my dog, please spend a little time to read the articles below:

5 Good Reasons to Spay or Neuter Your Pet

Veterinary experts agree: Having your dog or cat spayed or neutered is the right, responsible choice. Need more convincing? Find out about some important benefits.

Medically reviewed by Jennifer Garcia, DVM
Want to do something for your pet that is great for his health and is also an act of responsible pet ownership? Have your animal spayed or neutered. When you make the decision to spay or neuter a pet, you are also making a socially responsible choice — each year, millions of unwanted dogs and cats are euthanized.
So when would a pet owner not want to spay or neuter a pet? According to Bonnie Beaver, DVM, a professor at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M University, the only instance should be if the dog or cat is a breeding animal. Some hunters feel that if a male hunting dog is castrated, he will not work effectively, but this is just an old wives’ tale. “There really hasn’t been any strong scientific evidence that says that this is the case,” says Dr. Beaver.
Important Reasons to Spay and Neuter Pets
Here are some of the pet health benefits of choosing to sterilize your furry companion:
  • Relieves stress. “Physiologically, animals are geared toward pregnancy or nursing,” says Beaver. “If they are not doing that, they are physiologically stressed.”
  • Cuts down cancer risks. When you spay or neuter your pet, it reduces your pet’s risk of developing certain cancers and may lengthen their lives. In females, spaying cuts down the odds of developing mammary, ovarian, and uterine cancer. In males, the risk of developing testicular cancer is decreased after neutering.
  • Prevents urinary tract infections. Having a pet spayed or neutered also lowers your pet’s risk of developing urinary tract problems. This can be particularly important for cats since urinary tract disease can be very serious or even fatal in felines.
  • Promotes better behavior. When you spay or neuter your pet, it reduces undesirable behavior. “It can decrease the roaming of males who may get hit by cars or get picked up as strays,” says Beaver. In dogs, it can lessen howling, barking, and urine marking. Male cats will be less likely to mark their territory with urine when they are neutered; spaying female cats will prevent yowling, which is what they do to attract males when they are in heat.
  • Eliminates female canine menstruation. Female dogs experience heat cycles approximately every six months or so, which can leave bloody stains around the house. “Female dogs that are not spayed have bloody discharge,” says Beaver.
How Will Your Pet Feel?
Spaying or neutering a pet is a major surgery, but these are also some of the most commonly performed procedures. Your pet will be given general anesthesia during the surgery, and pain medications are often given after the procedure to minimize pain or discomfort. After the surgery, your veterinarian may recommend keeping your pet indoors in a quiet place to recover. She may also suggest ways to keep your pet calm and prevent your pet from running and jumping. Stitches are usually removed 10 to 14 days later.
It is recommended that female dogs and cats not be spayed while they are in heat since they may be susceptible to increased blood loss. If you want to have an older dog or cat undergo sterilization, have your veterinarian evaluate your pet to make sure the animal is in good health before undergoing the procedure.
Your pet will be calmer and better behaved after surgery — reducing the breeding instinct can eliminate the desire to roam to find a mate. More importantly, your dog or cat will be healthier, more content, and a more devoted member of the family.

When is the best time to spay or neuter your pets? 

dogs neutered under 6 months develop less obesity and don’t establish some of the “male” behaviors that neutering is meant to treat. They are also less likely to jump a fence, fight, or get hit by a car. With no true proof of the risk of increased cancer--and the very real risk of bad behaviors or even physical injury from running away or fighting--I am letting my clients make their own decisions based on a debatable risk of cancer vs. the very real behavioral risks.

Spaying females before 6 months is less controversial than neutering; preventing the first heat nearly eliminates the risk of breast cancer which is much more common than bone cancer.

Finally, ViVi was done! She was very tired because i decided to remove her fat lump on her back too, she got about 6-8 fat lumps on her back,really quite many! yes i know that fat lump doesn't cause any risk or danger but since she has to do the spay surgery,i asked vet to remove all of fat lumps too at the same time so she only will suffer in a shot but not twice.

My pity ViVi,here can see she got 8 parts of stitches on back. Vet told me that the painful on back is slightly lesser than the stomach (the part where she spayed).I was really worried and heart break when pick her back that day,not dare to move her because afraid she will feel very pain.






























I am glad to see Dou Dou didn't disturb her .=)











The next day, i definitely know i am worry too much yesterday,ViVi seems like nothing happen on her and jump on sofa and ran here and there. *sigh* she is more naughty than Dou Dou. i started to feel headache! But happy to see her condition too.

Sun Bath~~~


Sleeping like nobody,can you see she already did the fat lump removal on her back?? haha!




To love and concern your pets, you should think seriously about spaying or neutering. Don't because of afraid they are pain or suffer or you think that is unnecessary,so you don't go for it.Please think further that if they are suffering cancer or sickness in the future,will you feel more painful? will you take care of them until the end of life?

 It is good for them and the most important is to make their life longer and healthier!
