Pet laparoscopy offers many advantages vs. traditional surgery. It begins with a very small keyhole incision, combined with advanced surgical skills, sophisticated camera display technology and specialized instruments that allows the surgeon to perform the operation with significant reductions in pain, decreased surgical complications and more rapid recovery time.

While the surgical and technological improvements involved in pet laparoscopy are significant, the ultimate beneficiary is to your pet. Spaying and gastropexy (bloat prevention technique) are the two of the most common procedures for which IVS Surgeons use laparoscopy. In both cases, you can be assured that your pet will experience decreased pain and blood loss with the procedure and their recovery time will be much faster than with conventional surgery. Bloat, potentially fatal and very painful condition affecting 20% of large dogs, can be quickly and effectively treated with the MIS procedure.

Additionally, pet laparoscopy is safe on pets weighing a little as five pounds. Now, even the smallest of pets can benefit form this enhanced surgical technique. To learn more about pet laparoscopy visit Irvine Veterinary Services on the web at
