How A Veterinarian Does A Gender Reveal

A gender reveal is a big moment for expectant mothers to finally deliver the news to friends and family: it’s a boy! — or — it’s a girl! There are many variations and different ways to do gender reveals, sometimes even keeping mom and dad in the dark until the blue or pink balloons are released or by cutting into a cake and revealing a blue or pink interior.

But at the center of it all is the love and excitement of adding to the family. And if dog lovers think of their pets as their children, why can’t they do a gender reveal in the same way? 🙂

That’s exactly what one veterinarian did. And we think it’s amazing.

Watch the short but well-put-together video of the couple’s gender reveal here:

It’s a girl (dog)! Meet Kira, adopted from the San Jose Animal Care Center.

Isn’t she beautiful? 🙂

Some words from the vet herself: “While writing for Tails of a Shelter Vet for the last few years, I have made a conscious effort to remain professional and focused on the animals, not myself.

To be candid, however, maintaining Tails of a Shelter Vet has been an incredible challenge for me over the past year, mainly because I have been dealing with health issues during this time. Suffice to say, managing these issues has taken up a great deal of my time as well as mental and emotional energy.

Despite the multiple surgeries I have had, my doctors are not sure what more they can do. It has been a life-altering year for me and my partner. Yet, through the frustration and tears, we now have a new reason to get up every morning and live each day to the fullest.”
