June Long, DVM: For me personally, and I am sure it differs depending on the surgeon, the most difficult [spay] would be a fatty spay no matter how big the dog is. I have had like Chihuahuas and Yorkies and they are so difficult because of their condition so everything is slippery, everything wants to rip, and I really have to take my time with those and I also watch them very closely post-op as well. As far as the type of spay I have seen that is a little more tricky when it comes to post-op complications, particularly hemoabdomen, are pregnant spays because all the vessels are bigger, you have to really tighten your ligatures, really tie to make sure you are getting that hemostasis. In post-op, the uterus is gone so everything shrinks so then your ligatures aren't always as tight as they were when you left them.
