What Is Laparoscopy?
Just as keyhole surgery benefits humans, similar opportunities now exist for our pets. Keyhole surgery is a minimally invasive surgery that involves inserting a camera and specialised instruments through small incisions in the body wall.
A laparoscopic spay or neuter is an alternative to the traditional method. It is less invasive and allows a faster recovery time for your pet.LEARN MORE

What Are The Benefits Of Keyhole Surgery?
Laparoscopic Surgery Recovery
The biggest difference in laparoscopic surgery is how quickly your dog can recover from the procedure. Laparoscopic surgery is often quick to perform with less pain and a much faster recovery than traditional surgeries.
Once home, your pet should have a soft, quiet place to rest. Their abdomen will be sore. Try to keep your pet resting unless leash walking for elimination purposes.
Your dog may have been given fluids during surgery so he or she may need to urinate more than usual for the first 24 hours.
