Here at St Davids Veterinary Hospital we are delighted to be able to provide laparoscopic or keyhole surgery for our patients.
In veterinary practice, this surgery is usually, but not exclusively, used for bitch spays but may also be used to treat retained testicles in dogs and for minimally invasive biopsy of abdominal organs such as the liver.
There are many benefits of the treatment, including less trauma and discomfort, with a significantly shorter recovery time than standard neutering procedures. You can read more about the benefits, costs and what’s involved in the procedure.
We are making this surgery available to non-St Davids clients from Exeter and the surrounding area. Simply ask your current vet to refer your pet for laparoscopic surgery or contact the reception team at St David’s to arrange a consultation. There is no need to change practices and any post-operative care can be managed by your usual practice.
For more information about laparoscopic procedures, or to book your pet in for a consultation with our vet, please call our surgery on 01392 271221.
