A Spay In the Life (a Home-Made Video)

Ever wondered what goes into a "simple" spay? This common surgical procedure is really not so simple after all. While an experienced surgeon can make it look fast, it's really a lot tougher than it looks. 

Perhaps I've made this 16-minute procedure look too easy by speeding up this video eight times. Still, I think it demonstrates enough of this procedure's complexity that you get the idea. (Don't worry, it's not close up enough to be disgusting!)

The music, by the way, is by my boyfriend, the illustrious Dr. Brian Russell (doctor of music, that is). He's on banjo and acoustic guitar here.
