Just for clarification for people who do not know, the vet puts the tatoo on
after the dog has been spayed, so that there is not any mistake of trying to
re-spay her if she were to get lost or stolen.

Is that a fairly common practice? Bella doesn't have a spay tattoo.
It is here and I also found where it is listed in web sites when you look up "dog spay tattoos".

I've never heard of that, While you had that camera out did you take pics of Clara, other then that one??
No, I am not the picture taker, my husband is. He has to get up early for a
class so I did not want to stretch it out with several pics and then downloads.
He will be off Sunday and I will have him take pics of her then.
:D

I sure hope so! We don't see miss Clara enough!

That tatoo is interesting, and a good idea. Seems like it would be practiced more often.

CC doesn't have one, maybe i should give her one! Jk she would never hold still, although I often thought of putting a C in each of her ears.

I wish they did that around here. When I adopted my dog the vet was pretty sure she was spayed....but she wasn't and now India is in heat and walking around in her little denim diaper :)! I wonder if I can ask for a spay tatoo (she's getting spayed in December)?

Wow! Without that tattoo - you'de never know she was spayed! you can't see even a hint of a scar (at least on the pic).

I thought about having my dogs tattooed with the words - "I have a microchip" too. Just so if someone steals them then eventually surrenders them to a shelter, the shelter staff will know to scan for a chip. Some shelters around here will ask if the person surrendering a dog/cat has a chip. If they tell them No, the shelter wont bother scanning them for one. When I worked at the local shelter, I was the only one who scanned for chips regardless of what the "owner" told us. Found a few chips too that we weren't told about. Most came back to the breeder (breeders are required to have identification on their dogs - either chips, tags, or tattoos)

I would call them up before hand and ask if they do this? If not, maybe they
would get the necessary equipment to do it if they were told the idea.

Exactly, there is not even a demarcation line.

When I was a kid my mom took our dogs to a vet who did a spay through a small incision in her side instead of opening her belly!

What they do here is rub a little tattoo ink into the incision, so there will always be a little green line where they were spayed. It's especially important in rescue, because we spay them so young that there is no scar at all.

Wow, I'll have to talk to our vet about doing that for Piper. That would be great to do on all females. I mean, you can tell with the boys, not so easy with the females. The Cat Rescue place here cuts a snip of the cats ear, just the edge on the right tip so if the cats are trapped again they dont even have to deal with a ride to the vets office before figuring out they are already done. But, never heard of the tats with the dogs.....excellent idea though! I'll bring it up to our new vet!
