“Keyhole” or laparoscopy has been successfully used for many years in human surgery as it has many advantages when compared to traditional open surgery. 

At Brentknoll Veterinary Centre, we are proud to offer Laparoscopic neutering (this service is available to female dogs only.) 

We are one of the few Vet Practices in the UK offering keyhole spays for pets as small as 3.5kg

What are the benefits of Laparoscopic spay surgery? 

  1. Minimally invasive method of surgery 
  2. A reduction in pain post-surgery so normal activity can resume more quickly. 
  3. Smaller incisions, so fewer complications and bruising. 
  4. Faster recovery times; Back to normal exercise within 5 days! 
  5. Keyhole surgery provides excellent visualisation of the area undergoing surgery, which can help minimise surgical complications. 

Traditional open abdominal surgery, which requires a long 6-15cm incision along the midline of the abdomen, can result in greater tissue trauma compared to the keyhole. 

Keyhole surgery requires 2 or 3 small (1-2cm) ports, making small wounds and minimal tissue trauma. This results in Reduced pain & less chance of your pet licking its wounds, decreasing the chance of infection and reducing the length of time for strict rest after surgery.

What to expect from a Referral:  

After receiving a referral request from the referring vet (either by email, fax or phone), our referral nurse will ensure we have the relevant history, referral letter and client information. We will then contact the client directly to arrange a suitable appointment time. 

Referrals begin with a 30-minute appointment to fully examine the patient and discuss treatment plans thoroughly with the pet owner. A detailed Referral report, including findings, results and treatment recommendations, will be sent via email to your Primary Care Provider. The report is then discussed with you via your Primary Care Provider.  

If follow-up procedures are required with ourselves, we will advise your Primary Care Provider of this within your pet’s reports. If you would like a copy of the report, this can be requested from us or your primary care provider.
