neutering your own dog

Postby tinkerbb2 » Tue Apr 15, 2008 11:36 pm

Has anyone had their bitch spayed in B.g, our bitch has only had one season and the vet here says to wait until her second and then not travel for 2 months after. As she is young we don't know when her next season will be, so how long is a piece of string ?
We were a bit uncertain about having it done out there, are the vets as good, can anyone recommend a vet in the Elhovo region ?
Much appreciated

Hi Tinker
My bitch was spayed at 6 months due to health reasons. But I think its best to wait for the 1st season . She lived till she was nearly 13 years old If I was you I would have my dog spayed in BG it will save you a fortune in vet bills. I know Dannia has had her puppy done and she lives in the Yambol region . Why not send her a pm I'm sure she will share her experience with you .
Good Luck
Lotti

Bulgarian vets are competent. It might not be easy to find one who speaks English but invest a few leva in an interpreter.

There is a very competent English speaking vet in Yambol. The surgery is very clean and modern - you shouldn't have any worries. Judi

Yeeks!! When I read the title of this posting, I had visions of someone standing there, with scalpel and forceps, doing a DIY job!! Thank goodness I got that one wrong - phew! By the way, does anyone know of a good English speaking vet in VT? Cheers. :oops:

Hi Tinker
Lotti is correct, we recently had our 6 month old pup spayed in Yambol.
The vet is called Yanko and is gorgeous, and speaks English and what's more he cares about animals.
The process was very different from our Staffordshire Bull Terriers op in the UK.

Immy has been done before her first season, me and my friend Jayne, took both our dogs on the same day.
They were both given pre meds, and we were asked to walk them for about 20 minutes nearby the surgery, which is clean and modern as Jude says.
They were both then given their anaesthetic one after the other and we stayed with them in the surgery this time until they were under.
Me and Jayne went off for a coffee, and about an hour and a half Yanko called us to say they were ready.

The beauty of it, is that you are with the dog until it goes under, and there when they come round, they are not left there all day like my Staffie was.

Neither dog needed to wear a collar, as although there was a little irritation the first day, they did not touch their wounds.
After 10 days they were returned to have the stitches out.

The cost for the spay was but which also included a microchip insertion, and painkiller which lasts about 36 hours, was 123 leva.

Hi Nikki,
Could you give me contact details for your vet please and a rough idea of where he is in Yambol. The vet I have been using for the last 2 years is ok but doesn`t speak English.

Hi Vi
Yanko is on Han Tervel Street which if you know where the Bre offices are, you go down that street (Preslav St, toward the direction of the Bulls statues on the bridge) keep on the Bre side and there is a 2nd road on the left which is cobbled.
Parking is outside.
The number is 046 661929
(I had to go in and ask at Bre where it was)

There is also Maria (where Yanko used to be in the old vets) on the outskirts of Yambol, who also speaks perfect English
046 664276
