Is my dog a boy or a girl, Fortitude Valley Vet?

Imagine my surprise when I was doing a routine female dog desexing surgery at Fortitude Valley Vet to find two testis attached to what seemed to be a uterus with vas deferens, instead of ovaries! Upon closer examination of this doggie's genitals, it seemed like a tiny penis protruding out of the vulva. How interesting!

It is national desexing month in July. Click here, here and here to find out why you should desex your pet.

Here at Fortitude Valley Vet, every desexing surgery comes with intravenous fluid therapy (to minimise drops in blood pressure under general anaesthetic and ready access to the circulatory system to administer drugs), local anaesthetics (to minimise pain) and additional pain relief (anti-inflammory medicine to reduce swelling).
