Key hole spays now available

Summer Lane Vets is pleased to announce that we can now spay your female dog using key hole surgery. Known as a laparoscopic spay, this is an alternative to the traditional surgical method. As many of us will know from human medicine, keyhole surgery is less invasive and allows faster recovery time.

In a laparoscopic spay, your female dog will have her ovaries removed using a camera to find the ovaries through a keyhole incision. In a traditional surgical spay, the operation requires an incision to be made on the midline of the tummy. The uterus and the ovaries are removed through this larger hole.

Why use the laparoscopic method?

Small key hole wound = faster healing time

Only ovaries removed = less trauma and reduced risk of complication

Minimal stitches = less discomfort and wound licking

Laparoscopic surgery requires both specialist equipment and an experienced surgeon to carry out the procedure. At Summer Lane Vets we have both! We’re are currently the only clinic in Weston-super-Mare to offer the key hole spay.
