Laparoscopic surgery involves the use of a tube with a tiny light and camera mounted on the end and the necessary surgical tools, which are inserted into one or more small incisions to perform the procedure. Surgeries such as a dog spay, Gastropexy (or Stomach Tacking), Cryptorchid Neuter, Liver Biopsies, and Abdominal Exploratories can now be performed with two small incisions with little to no recovery time with our Laparoscopic equipment. In addition, Gastric Foreign Bodies and GI Tract sampling can now be performed with our Flexible Endoscope with no abdominal surgery required. This allows us to offer our patients the best standard of care with surgeries while causing little to no pain for your pet.
Benefits of Laparoscopic Surgery:
~Less pain for your pet than traditional surgery.
~Much faster recovery time. Let's face it. Your pet may not always listen to your requests that they not jump or play after their surgery. Now they can and you can feel secure they will still be safe.
