Parkside offers laparoscopic surgery not only for our own clients but also on a referral basis from other Vets in the area.
Laparoscopic spays are now available to most dogs weighing more than 5kg.
The main benefits of this new and exciting procedure is a significantly lower level of post operative pain, a faster recovery (2 days rest only rather than the normal 2 weeks), smaller wounds and the fact that dissolvable sutures are used meaning no need to come back to get the sutures removed.
Laparoscopic surgery can also be useful for the investigation and treatment of other conditions e.g. exploratory laparoscopy, organ biopsy (including liver and kidney) lap-assisted surgery e.g. for bowel and bladder procedures.
