Less pain and a rapid return to normal with keyhole surgery for dogs and cats

We are very pleased to be able to offer a very new procedure when your pet requires surgery. By performing the operation endoscopically your pet will have tiny wounds, meaning much less pain and a very fast return to normal. Your dog could be running around on a walk only 2-3 days later (as compared to the normal recovery time of 7-14 days). Human surgery has advanced so that most procedures are now performed endoscopically and the veterinary world is starting to follow this example. Here are a few of the procedures which can be carried out using our brand new state of the art video endoscope:

Abdomen (Laparoscopy)

  • Ovariectomy (endoscopic bitch spay)
  • Exploration of the abdominal cavity, e.g when investigating abdominal pain or swelling
  • Biopsy of the liver, kidney, pancreas or any masses
  • Resection of tumours with diathermy

Thorax(Thoracoscopy)

  • Pericardiectomy
  • Biopsy of masses
