The ovarian pedicle and uterine body were exteriorized, ligated and inspected for bleeding. The rectus fascia and the subcutaneous tissue were sutured. An intradermal pattern with absorbable monofilament suture was used to suture skin. Tissue glue was applied to incision. A green tattoo was applied on the abdomen to indicate patient has been sterilized. A microchip was inserted. RABIES VACCINE ADMINISTERED: NOBIVAC RABVAC Serial# 420628 EXP. 10/05/2021
Mass removal: (4x3" ulcerated dermal mass on sternum)
An elliptical incision was done using a #15 blade. Undermined tissue using metzembaums. Small bleeding vessels were cauterized. Mass appears as to be completely excised.

|A2126031||Monday, 08 March, 2021||Philomena is toy possessive, would not recommend to family with younger children in home and no other pets. She has become very anxious, at times cage fighting when being walked back in or out of kennels.

|A2126031||Tuesday, 09 March, 2021||Sweet as pie outside, but I agree that she is restless in her kennel. Philomena keeps bouncing her water bowl all over the place. I generally have to refill it 2-3 times a day and dry the floor. So far, so good today, but if I see her doing it again I'm just going to see how a door clip bowl works for her.||Tuesday, 09 March, 2021 6:4PM||Behavior|
