Charlotte is a year-and-a-half old Rottweiler who was brought to the clinic for a spay surgery (OHE: ovariohysterectomy.)
Charlotte’s spay was delayed several times due to infection/inflammation of the area around Charlotte’s vulva. This was treated by cleaning the area and by administering topical and oral antibiotics. When the infection had been resolved for a while and the patient’s skin looked healthy, the decision was made to proceed with the spay.
