Laparoscopic Keyhole Spays

Parkside Veterinary Practice is committed to working at the forefront of veterinary medicine, for the benefit of our patients. As such we are pleased to be the first practice in the region to be able to offer laparoscopic spaying, in addition to current services, to our clients and referring practices.Minimally Invasive Surgery using rigid endoscopic equipment allows for better visualisation of the surgical area, as well as less internal tissue trauma for the patient. With keyhole surgical incisions being between 0.5cm and 1.0cm in length, patients are much more comfortable and recovery time is dramatically reduced.1,2 This means less pain and discomfort for the patient and a much speedier recovery and a quicker return to normal activity.

If you are interested in utilising this service please contact us and ask to speak to Mr Gemmill.
