Laparoscopic (Keyhole) Surgery

At the Pets’n’Vets Family, we are proud to introduce Laparoscopic (Keyhole) Surgery at the Roundhouse!

Laparoscopic surgery allows the surgeon to carry out common open surgeries through smaller incision sites with the use of a camera, a light source and instrumentation.

The main benefits of performing Laparoscopic Surgery are:

  • A reduction in post operative pain
  • A quicker recovery time
  • Smaller wound size
  • Less complications associated with poster operative wounds
  • Less risk of post operative infections
  • In some cases, shorter hospitalisation times.

The key to laparoscopic surgery is it’s minimally invasive!

Some examples of the services we can provide are:

  • neutering female dogs >15kg
  • exploratory laparotomy
  • elective gastropexy surgery
  • biopsy of abdominal and thoracic organs

Treating a wide range of common, and uncommon orthopaedic and soft tissue conditions, including:


  • Cruciate ligament disease injury (TTA and extracapsular suture)
  • Medial and lateral patella luxation
  • Elbow dysplasia (including CT scans and arthoscopic assessment and management)
  • Arthrodesis (carpal and partial/tarsal)
  • Arthroscopy
  • Fractures

Soft tissue
