what the origin of the word "spay" is that describes an oviohysterectomy procedure in animals? i asked the vet today, but she didn't know...i was wondering if it was an arconym for something or if it was named after a place or a vet who invented the procedure...ie the first oviohysterectomy performed on animals was in Spay Germany (yes there is such a place) or the first oviohysterectomy in domestic animals was performed by Dr. Spay...or SPAY stands for Surgical Prevention Animal Young
anyway..i couldn't find anywhere on the net why a spay really is called a spay (my guesses are pretty stupid)...so does anyone really know????
speaking of...june did ok with her spay surgery and charlie had a bit of a rough time with her mammary tumour removal (her blood pressure dropped down low) but they are both doing ok now and can come home tomorrow morning.
