Here at Acorn Veterinary Centre we are very proud to be able to offer laparoscopic (keyhole) spays.
This procedure is done through two or three tiny incisions in the abdomen rather than a larger abdominal opening and has been proven to reduce postoperative pain by up to 65% compared with traditional surgical spays. The procedure also allows for greater precision. Laparoscopic spays eliminate pain and bruising caused by the pulling of tissue associated with traditional spays.
The main benefits of keyhole surgery are:
- Less post-operative pain and discomfort
- Halves the recovery time compared to a traditional spay
- Two or three smaller incisions rather than one larger incision
- Less risk of complications and infections
If you are interested in further information regarding laparoscopic procedures or would like to find out about booking an appointment for your pet, please call us on 01527 853304.
