Rhoda is an adult female badger who lives at the Wildwood Trust near Canterbury. She is now a lady of "a certain age" and should no longer be having pups. So that she could continue to live with her Wildwood family, she was spayed recently at Burnham House.
Rhoda is anaesthetised and clipped for surgery in our prep room. A tube is inserted into her throat to administer the anaesthetic gas and oxygen. The purple cuff provides constant monitoring of Rhoda's blood pressure while she is under anaesthetic. A dedicated nurse and sophisticated equipment also monitor her breathing, heart rate and rhythm, oxygen saturation, carbon dioxide level, respiration, temperature, and other parameters.
Jeremy performs the spay operation, removing the uterus and ovaries so she can no longer have pups. The operation lasts less than an hour and ends with neat stitches.
