    Warning, this could get mentally graphic.

    Slice the sack open vertically.
    The testicles will pop themselves out.
    The vet will snip each one off and tie a knot in the attatchment. Yes, a standard knot you would tie in everyday life.
    Stuff it all back in, and sew it back up.
    It only takes about 7 minutes!
    Unless your Vet is neutering toms, he wouldn't be making the incision on the scrotum of a canine.

    The incision is made in front of the scrotum in a dog. The tubes are usually tied with ligature also, but in felines, they simply tie them in a knot.

    Your Vet seems to do things very differently Myf??

    Megan - Doof had dissolving stitches and was up and ready to go with an hour or so

    They sometimes worry the wound so an elizabethan collar is a good idea just in case.

    Yes - tom = male cat.

    Your Vets just may do it differently Myf.

    I have had umpteen males neutered over the years, specially with the rescue, and I was a Vet Nurse myself and I have never seen the incision made over the dog's scrotum, only cats are done this way in my experience.

    I'd be curious to see if others who have had males neutered had the incison made over the scrotum. It could be just the way that some do it and I have never come across it.

    I did work experience in several vet clinics when I was in year 12 and got to "assist" in lots of desexing ops. It was facinating

    Myf, I have a question for you, seeing as how you're a vet nurse. My girl got desexed before Christmas. At the top of her incision a lump formed. It was a bit bigger than a pea (probably a pea and a half?!) and we watched it and watched it and it didn't seem to cause her pain so we waited until we got her external stitches removed until I asked the nurses, and they told me it's the internal stitches and was nothing to worry about but to keep an eye on it. It never seemed to hurt her and it's getting smaller. Does this happen often? And what is it exactly?
