A Malay family from Chua Chu Kang brought in the 3rd female cat for spay. A beautiful white and grey cat, 1.5 years old. They don't want any vaccination.
I got an educational video made by my assistant Naing for vet students, showing how I spay this cat using the 3-haemostat method. The cat was on heat as you can see enlarged ovarian blood vessels. Incision is around 2 cm from the umbilical scar.
3.8 kg cat. Xylazine + Ketamine 0.2 + 0.8 ml IM.
First skin incision to skin stitched was 25 minutes.
Injection of induction drugs to skin stitched 49 minutes.
Spaying a caterwauling cat requires extra care and takes a longer time.

STUMP PYOMETRA IN A YANGON CAT
GIVEN CONTRACEPTIVE DEPO-M OR CONTRACEP
CAT'S STUMP PYOMETRA REMOVED BY DR AUNG OF ROYAL ASIA VETERINARY SURGERY
YANGON CAT DEVELOPS PYOMETRA AFTER DOSES OF MEDO-M OR CONTRACEP FOR SOME WEEKS. THE CULTURE IN THE PAST IS THAT OWNERS DO NOT WANT TO SPAY THEIR CATS BUT PREFER CONTRACEPTIVE INJECTIONS EVERY 3 MONTHS.
ACCURACY AND COMPLETENESS IN A SPAY SURGERY MEANS COMPLETE REMOVAL OF THE OVARIAN TISSUES. NOT LEAVING AN OVARY INSIDE THE ABDOMEN OR OVARIAN REMNANTS INSIDE AFTER SPAY.
