Why Choose Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery, often referred to as minimally invasive surgery, utilizes advanced technology to perform procedures through small incisions, using a camera and specialized instruments. This approach offers numerous benefits over traditional surgery, including:

Faster Recovery Times

The minimally invasive nature of the procedure allows for quicker healing, meaning your pet can return to normal activities sooner.

Reduced Pain and Discomfort

With smaller incisions, pets experience significantly less pain and discomfort during and after surgery.

Lower Risk of Infection

Smaller incisions mean there’s less exposure of internal tissues to potential external contaminants, greatly reducing the risk of post-operative infections.

Improved Surgical Outcomes

Enhanced precision and visualization during the procedure lead to more accurate and effective outcomes.

A Lap Spay Explained


A laparoscopic spay starts with pre-operative checks, including a physical exam and bloodwork, before your pet is gently anesthetized by our veterinary team. Once under anesthesia, we connect them to state-of-the-art monitoring equipment, ensuring their well-being by precisely tracking vital signs like temperature, heart rate, oxygen levels, blood pressure, ECG, and CO2.

During surgery, two ~1 cm incisions are made in the abdomen for the laparoscope and instruments. The ovaries are removed with tools that dramatically reduce pain and bleeding (when compared to a traditional spay), followed by closure using an intradermal technique, leaving no external stitches to remove or cause discomfort.

After surgery, your pet is carefully monitored as they wake from anesthesia, with pain management and checks for any complications. We'll promptly update you on their status once they're fully recovered and email you the post-operative care instructions for review 💜
