Well so far everyone says they use ketamine and wont do anything else. Getting lots of "we have done Sphynx before and they have been fine" Its starting to drive me nuts. I am VERY much willing to drive to get my babies spayed and neutered if they will do without Ketamine.
My vet would probably do it, she's very accommodating, but I'm a very, VERY long drive from you. (Niederbayern. Beyond Passau toward Austria/Czech.)
But I know a handful of Germans with Sphynxes, I'll ask around.
Okay, I've had a couple vets recommended, but the owners didn't know which drug was used.
Herr Lehmann in Erlenbrunn near Pirmasens did the neutering and several other things (teeth etc) on a girl's Sphynx and she said she can highly recommend him. (I don't know which vet surgery it is tho)
Another said Rahimi in Kaiserslautern did hers, but didn't know what was used.
Waiting for one more in Zweibrücken, she hasn't got back to me yet if she knows anyone.
Dr. Rahimi in Kaiserslautern just got back to me and they will do it without ketamine!!!!!!!!!!
Got our first appointment their for Niko and Hazel next week and then we will schedule them for surgery. I was getting so stressed and called literally 30 vets asking and asking. Everyone said they use Ketamine and wont do anything else.
I've actually just had a message from a Sphynx owning VET...
She said that even if you didn't find anyone (as you have, now ) Ketamine isn't a problem -- provided they can completely rule out any heart conditions beforehand. She also said that she does use Ketamine on Sphynx, but never without checking heart condition first.
I'm so glad you found one tho!
If Dr. Rahimi wants to know who recommended you to her, it was Karin Bienfait, one of her customers.
P.S. Another recommended vet in your area was Frau Creutz in Bännjerrück and Dr. med. vet. Georg Grüning in Zweibrücken.
And PPS -- I'm jealous of how many vets you have available nearby! (I'm at the back of beyond. There is ONE vet, who only does pets, but luckily she is very good. She did vaccinate my horses though (because she has horses herself) and chip the youngster.)
