What is Keyhole Neutering?

A Laparoscopic Spay (otherwise known as Keyhole neutering) is an alternative to the traditional method. It is less invasive and allows faster recovery time.

In Keyhole neutering (a Laparoscopic Spay) your female dog will have her ovaries removed using a small camera and vessel sealing device, through a keyhole incision (ovariectomy). In traditional neutering, this procedure would involve a long incision on the midline of the tummy. The uterus and the ovaries are then stitched with thread and removed through this larger hole.

What are the benefits of Keyhole Neutering?

The main benefits of performing Keyhole Neutering are:

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