Key hole surgery bitch spays

 We are really pleased to be able to now offer laparoscopic (key hole) spays!!

The benefits of having your bitch spayed via key hole is that it is much less painful, the wounds heal sooner and so they can get back to normal exercise sooner!

Jenna was our first laparoscopic spay a few weeks ago, her owners are really pleased with how much better she recovered than bitches they had done in the past the usual way.



During the procedure we insert a needle and inflate the abdomen with carbon dioxide. We then insert a 5mm camera port and a 5mm instrument port. We then remove each ovary via one of the small 5mm incisions. 


Jenna's owners noticed her quick recovery.  They told us "Beyond thrilled with how well Jenna recovered from her surgery. She was basically back to normal the following morning - the hardest thing was keeping her calm, and stopping her playing with the other dog. Could not recommend Laura and the team highly enough."


If you are interested in having your bitch spayed this way or would like more information please call and speak to Laura on 01625 501500
