At Cockburn Veterinary Group we know that you want the best for your pet. That’s why we are proud to introduce the minimally invasive surgery for neutering female dogs, the laparoscopic (keyhole) spay. Although bitch spays are deemed ‘routine’ surgery they are in fact invasive abdominal surgery. Keyhole surgery has been used in human medicine for many years and is deemed a superior technique with surveys reporting up to a 65% reduction in pain, faster recovery and fewer complications. We are now bringing these advantages to our much loved pets.
