Topics in Spay/Neuter Surgery

Presented by: Philip Bushby, DVM, MS, DACVS

MIssissippi State


Efficient spay neuter surgery 

Veterinary surgeons in high-volume spay neuter clinics use many techniques that are fundamentally different from the techniques generally taught to students in veterinary school.  Why is that?  And, how are the techniques different?  Through Powerpoint and video presentations we will answer these questions.  Participants will leave the presentation with a full understanding of the efficient surgical techniques used in high-volume spay neuter clinics and the ability to implement these techniques in the private practice setting.

Unusual spay neuter surgery 

How many times have you heard someone say, “It is just a spay” or “It is just a castration?”  While ovariohysterectomy and castration are the most common surgical procedures performed in private small animal veterinary practice, not all spays or neuters are the same.  Some animals presented for routine sterilization are not at all routine and may be challenging.  Through Powerpoint and video presentations we will discuss and demonstrate the surgical techniques used in the obese patient, the patient with pyometra, and the cryptorchid patient.  Participants will learn about uterus unicornis and hermaphrodites and leave with a full understanding of how to perform flank spays and how to locate a testicle in an abdominal cryptorchid.

Preventing and managing spay neuter complications 

We would like to think that surgical complications never occur, but they do, even for the most experienced surgeon in the most commonly performed procedures.  We will explore techniques to minimize complications during ovariohysterectomy and castration and learn how to manage complications when they occur.  Through Powerpoint and video presentations participants will learn how to minimize and manage intraoperative and postoperative hemorrhage, dehiscence and ovarian remnant and will learn techniques to minimize tissue trauma thereby minimizing postoperative pain.
