Squish, squish

I had a lot of fun today. I spayed an in-heat small dog. This usually fills me with trepidation (any dog spay does- it's a long storey) but this one went ok. But the fun part came later. I removed a big marble sized sebaceous cyst from a dog's back. I got to so some cool wound closing stuff, like walking sutures and vertical mattress sutures (I haven't done these since vet school and was happy I remembered how) and afterwards, I sliced open the cyst and shelled out a perfect little white ball of hair and sebum and oil from the cyst! It was extremely cool!!!!! I find weird stuff cool.

You speyed a bitch in heat!!!
Jeez... you are brave... we always send them away to settle - far easier later, even if early pregnancy!

Like the sound of that cyst though :)
