Idea Exchange: For a quick tie down, use a leash


A reader tip for positioning cats for abdominal surgery.

For a quick tie down for a cat undergoing abdominal surgery, place a leash across the table at the point where the cat's neck will be, with the ends of the leash secured to the table. Place the cat on the table with its neck and legs on top of the leash, and then tuck the legs under the leash. The cat's weight is sufficient to hold the legs and keep the patient in dorsal recumbency. The whole process takes about five seconds!
