Big girl surgery 01/30/16

Hello, hello!  Mei-Ling here.

My little fursister Jade had her big girl surgery done on Thursday.  Our regular vet couldn't get her in until February 18th.  Normally that wouldn't be a problem, but we are expecting a series of storms coming through, thus, our roads will become dangerous and mucky.  Daddy found a vet in Grants that could take her the next day, so that worked well.

So, Thursday morning, we got up super early and headed off to Grants.  I had to get a booster shot, while Jade was getting spayed and microchipped.  I'm happy to report that everything went well.  This vet office was a very tiny place and didn't do things quite as my vet does.  Jade did not get the tiny incision on her side, instead, the vet made the larger incision in the middle of her belly.  The humans were told it was a good thing the surgery was done that way because her uterus was quite large.  Also, once the surgery was completed, the vet tattooed a heart on her tummy which is supposed to indicate that she has been spayed.

I am so jealous!  I didn't get a tattoo after I had my big girl surgery....
