so Millie had her spay today. She’s 21 months and had 2 heats (and 2 phantoms too) Millie is my second dog, my first being a DDB who was spayed after 1 heat cycle because of my lack of knowledge of large breeds. She’s just let me look at her incision and I am gonsmacked! It’s only about 5cm long. Mollies was soooo long in comparison. That must have been about 6 years ago now (she only lived until age 5 ) I have also since changed Vet. Why such a big difference? Looking back, we had problems for a few months with slight incontinence following that spay although it did resolve itself. Have procedures changed within the last few years? I just can not comprehend why the size of the incision is so very different, particularly as Millie is older than our previous dog was at point of spay so therefore bigger!
