    Frena, can I ask what the long term outcome has been for your companion? I am going through this with my 6 year old Doberman. She developed severe adhesions from a spay surgery in August. In February she became very sick and it turned out she had a blockage due to adhesions. She went through a 5 hour surgery. They had to untangle her intestines and the surgeon said he has only seen these types of adhesions twice in 20 years. 10 days later she had to have another surgery and they removed 3 inches of her intestines. Now here we are 5 months later and she just went though another blockage surgery and once again, severe adhesions. We cannot keep putting her through surgery every 5 months. But the surgeon has said that this is so rare that the few medications that have been tried do not have enough documentation for them to know if they are effective in preventing the recurrence of intestinal adhesions. This is so heartbreaking. Spay surgeries are elective and now I so wish we had never had it done.
