so I have been calling around the vets in our area looking for someone who does a Keyhole Spay and then I found out yesterday that OUR VET will do an ovary sparing spay but it's not lathroscopic....it is still the traditional incision. What does everyone think that about? I know this is going to sound dumb, but if you leave their ovaries does that mean she will still go into heat?? And if you are leaving their ovaries then can you do the spay earlier instead of waiting til after their first heat?? I like the idea of leaving the ovaries for the hormone reason, but still have questions!

I'm not sure about the keyhole spay, hearing it on here is the first I've heard of it.
I would assume that if they're anything like us, if you left their ovaries that they would still go through all the normal stuff except for having babies but I'm not a vet and I'm new to all of this.

Update on Gypsy:

So it's been exactly a week since she got spayed and she has been recovering well. She is up and mobile, carrying on as usual. Keeping her chilled has been a task to say the least.
My only concern is that she is waking up throughout the night just wanting someone with her. He separation anxiety has gotten worse...I guess she's thinking
" the last time I couldn't see you I got cut open and ended up with this cone on my head" lol
Anyways, the other thing is that the past few days I've been waking up to her vomiting once in the morning then she is fine the rest of the day.

Any thoughts?

Is she on any medication after her surgery? It could be upsetting her stomach a bit.

She was for the first 4 days but not anymore. We are taking her to the vet today for a check up just to make sure that everything is going as it should. Because I think she popped a stich as well.

Update:

Gypsy is doing great.
We took her to the vetbecause she has a bulge where her stiches are. The vet said not to worry because you can't push it back up into her belly.
Vomiting has ended and we are working on her being away from me and Not having her freak out.

So all is good?

Just to clarify a few things. Your girl is deaf because she is white. Not that I would ever recommend breeding a white but technically speaking you could breed her to a plain and have an entire flashy litter with no deafness.

OSS (ovary sparing spay), your bitch will still go through a heat cycle every 6-8 months. She will have limited discharge as the uterus has been removed but she will still trigger males to breed with her as well as potentially go through false pregnancies. She also is still at risk for mammary gland cancer as she gets older.

The bludge you are likely feeling is a reaction to the internal stitches. It's very common. If it gets larger, she will need a round of antibiotics.
