I’ve never been spayed, but I think if I had to be, I’d want the doc to take his time.
Cats in Palm Beach County, Fla., didn’t have that option. More than 400 cats were spayed and neutered in 12 hours as part of the “Op Around the Clock” program, which is in its third year.
It reminded me of a vet’s office I saw back in my home state of Arkansas. It was called “Cat Surgery Express.” Worst name ever.
The cats are basically in an operation assembly line. (Or maybe it’s a dis-assembly line.) Either way, vets charge through – anesthesia, operation, post-op care. The result: a neutered cat who hasn’t even had time to resent you. This is a good idea in theory and in practice, but I were one of those cats, I’d asked to be put in the slow lane.
