Another big draw for me at the Minnesota State Fair is the veterinary surgeries. Vets donate their time to demonstrate the necessity of spaying and neutering our pets. I observed the spaying of an approximately eight-month-old black cat, starting with the pre-op preparations by technicians (behind glass as we observed on the bleachers) to the actual surgical procedure enlarged for the audience on televisions. The following photos show the incision and removal of the ovaries before the uterus was removed and then the final stitching by the good doctor. Fascinating!!
