Scrotal Ablation


Abe got a new lease on life. He is a Golden Retriever that was adopted from the Frederick County Animal Control Center by one of our good clents. FCAC regulations state that any animal that is adopted must be spayed or neutered before the new owner takes them home. Abe had been neutered at another facility and did well. He went home with his new family and was adjusting to his new life.

Abe is a very active dog and unfortunately, it was very hard for the owners to keep him quiet after his surgery. His scrotal tissue became very swollen, bruised and painful. He was so swollen that it looked as if he had never been neutered. He presented to Kingsbrook Animal Hospital for a scrotal ablation. Abe was given pain medication, anesthetized and Dr Cook removed the damaged scrotal tissue. After his recovery from anesthesia, Abe went home and is currently doing well.
