Advanced Techniques for Spay Surgeries

When you choose to spay your pet at Deer Creek Animal Hospital, you will benefit from the most advanced surgical procedures. We use laparoscopic techniques, whereby surgery is performed through small incisions and the organs are viewed via a state-of-the-art camera system. Minimally invasive, laparoscopy has a number of benefits:

  • Reduced tissue trauma
  • Less risk of infections and complications
  • Faster healing and recovery
  • Decreased pain

Laparoscopic spays are vastly superior to traditional methods. It is estimated that its use diminishes pain and recovery time for female dogs up to 65% compared to non-laparoscopic means.

The laparoscopic technique eliminates tearing of ligaments, potential tearing of the body wall, and possible hemorrhage by the main arteries that supply the ovaries, providing a much safer surgery for your pet. The increased safety and decreased pain associated with this technique makes if the gentler and more humane way to perform spays.

Our Expertise

Deer Creek Animal Hospital veterinarians only perform spays using laparoscopy. Our doctors are some of the country’s most proficient experts in the technique. Deer Creek veterinarians travel the United States teaching others how to perform this promising technique. Only about 35 practices across the United States employ this technique.
