We now tattoo your pet to identify Spay Scars
At the time of surgery, a green paste is used to tattoo your pet because it is easily recognizable and is not mistaken for natural pigmentation. It should not be mistaken for infection or gangrene. We prefer to make a separate superficial skin incision adjacent to our S/N incision and apply ink into this incision. This is called a scoring tattoo since the skin is scored with a scalpel blade and then ink is then applied. These procedures for tattooing are very safe and are not associated with increased risk of incisional infection. By design, tattoo paste is intended to be safe for such purposes.
It is always a pleasure to find a nice green line when trying to determine if an animal has been spayed! There is nothing worse than performing unnecessary abdominal surgery. And, being able to identify that an animal is spayed can in and of itself be life-saving to pets entering shelters or found by Rescue groups.
