That is what I had hoped when I first read about it but yeah, it doesn't seem like that is the case. Which is really too bad since it is such a problem with spayed bitches.

$140 savings is not worth a 6 hour drive (assuming you meant 3 hours either directions) and a missed day of work to me. Local vet.

I'd vote option #1 as well. Seeing spays pretty muc h every day, I've yet to see one have a longer than two inch incision, and that's pretty rare (it was a shelter dog in season, so there was oozy tissue)

I'd think that an ovariectomy would still cause the same amount of all involves fishing around in there.

I'd do local vet with the optional bloodwork. I don't know enough about ovariectomies to really comment about that.

Just makes me glad I have boys
