Anaesthetic death is always a worry for the Thai lady owner and her husband. So, when she came to take back the hamster post-op, she snapped a picture from her handphone to show her husband that Spiky 2 had survived the anaesthesia.
Isoflurane gas + oxygen anaesthesia for a few times as it is hard to assess the depth of anaesthesia. The hamster reacted to the electrosurgery twice when I started cutting. So, she needs gas again. Finally, I managed to get out the wart which is friable and measured 3 mm across. See video.
The hamster has such a thick coat. On her right chest, there was a tumour around 1.3 cm across. To operate or not?
