First solo Cesarean Section

Today I completed my first solo Cesarean Section and I am really pleased with how it went!

It is my op's day we we'd nearly finished the op's list when we got a call to say she might be coming down so had been chatting about it and getting things ready, I said I was quite excited and would like to have a go. One of the other vets did the consult, came down to the prep area and said he was going to do the op. I asked if I could do it, it was the perfect opportunity while we were quiet and had lots of people around, and because I won't be having a second vet on call with me anymore... He said No, he fancied doing it, so that was that. I thought.
The nurses jumped in and said I should really do it, perfect opportunity for me to learn etc and had my back. I was really pleased they had my back and believed I could do it!

Simon, the other vet, was around but not scubbed in and talked me through the tricky bit of milking puppies out of the uterus but otherwise the surgery went really well.

She had seven healthy puppies and all went home well at the end of the day :)
