Background: Routine neutering of bitches is typically carried out by ovariohysterectomy (OVH) in Veterinary Medicine, seen by many as a simple procedure. During the conventional approach the points of attachment of the uterus and ovaries are double ligated with absorbable or non-absorbable sutures or even with titanium clamps. It has been described the use of non-surgical polyamide tie-raps as a hemostatic closure method by some authors but there are few papers describing the consequenses of such use. The aim of this study is to report four cases of surgical complications associated with nylon tie-raps use on OVHs on bitches referred to the Veterinary Teaching Hospitals of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (HCV-UFRGS) and Passo Fundo University (HV-UPF), both at the State of Rio Grande do Sul.Cases: 1- An eleven-month-old bitch was admitted at the HV-UPF nine days after OVH performed elsewhere, with omentum evisceration due to suture dehiscence. During emergency surgery both ovaries were found surrounded by nylon tie-raps and fi brous tissue adherence. Peritonitis signs were recognizable. Bilateral ovariectomy with nylon 2-0 was performed and the remaining uterus was removed. 2- A fi ve-years-old bitch was referred to the HV-UPF ten days after OVH performed elsewhere, with apathy and suture dehiscence. Free liquid was identifi ed around the bladder and kidneys using t
