Laparoscopic ovariectomy (keyhole spay)

Laparoscopic ovariectomy also known as a ‘keyhole’ spay is a minimally invasive surgery to remove the ovaries through a small incision in the abdomen. This avoids the large wound required to remove the ovaries and womb in a conventional neutering. Because the surgery does not require a large incision the patient has less discomfort/pain on recovery and they usually return more rapidly to usual exercise compared with open surgery.
