Q. I'm bring my fur girl (shih tzu) for a sterlization at a vet clinic on Friday. She hv went for blood test already. I'm afraid if the operation is safe

Answered By

A. Spaying and neutering our dogs is extremely safe and a very standard procedure. Vets joke they can do these surgeries in their sleep, and believe me there are many people taking care of your pet through the entire process. If you've done the bloodwork and it's came back then everything should go very smooth. It's very important to fix our pets so that's great you're going through with the process.
