Spay Day Sundays in Boquete, Panama
Today, our gracious hosts took us for a personal and up-close tour of Boquete and surrounding areas. Little did we know that today was special. It was Spay Day at the Boquete Gymnasium.
Preop. Animals are shaved, sprayed with alcohol and sterile (ha-yeah right!) drapes applied.
This young fella is in preop waiting for the next surgical table to become available.
Cute Mr. Puppy will not remember his ordeal.
There is Kitty Kat ICU, with oxygen, heating pads and rectal thermometers (for some reason dogs never need ICU). Above is regular post-op. All animals have a person to take care of them and holding and petting them until awake.These Volunteers will spend the next 8 hours with these pets.
Happy owners and sleepy, freshly neutered pets, basking in the bright Panamanian sun.Tomorrow we travel to Panama City, where there have been riots in the street. Tomorrow either you all will get more pretty pictures of our travel or pictures of police in riot gear escorting us to our plane to Colombia. For my non medical readers, I have left the graphic pictures out of this post.
