Laparoscopic surgery, a minimally invasive technique in which doctors insert short, narrow tubes into small incisions in a pet’s abdomen and use the tubes to cut, sew, and manipulate tissue, is often the best option for many procedures, including spays.
At Seven Oaks Pet Hospital, we are thrilled and proud to take this advanced approach to the next level. We are one of the only veterinary hospitals in the Sunshine State to offer single port laparoscopic spays.
What does this mean exactly? Our surgeons are able to spay your pet using only one incision, typically around the navel. The benefits to a single port are obvious and all related to your pet’s comfort.
Our approach shortens your best friend’s hospital stay, cuts down on potential blood loss and the likelihood of post-op infection, improves their recovery period, and, of course, causes less pain.
That means fewer stitches and less time in the cone for your little one and peace of mind for you.
If you’d like to schedule a consultation to see if a laparoscopic spay is right for your pet, call us at (813) 929-4100 today! Our veterinarians will be happy to discuss the process in greater detail and to conduct a thorough physical exam to determine whether or not your animal companion is healthy enough for surgery.
