Laparoscopic Spay in Makanda, IL

Here at Stone Creek Veterinary Clinic, we are proud to offer laparoscopic spays.

We are dedicated to staying on top of the latest offerings in veterinary medicine. We believe our patients and their owners deserve the very best care they can get. By offering laparoscopic spays, we are giving our patients the highest quality veterinary care available. Laparoscopic procedures are less invasive, are less painful for the pets, and have a quicker recovery rate.

Laparoscopic spays use a small incision to insert a camera into the abdomen. Another small incision may be necessary for the veterinarian to work. Instead of opening a pet up a few inches, only a pencil size incision is made for a laparoscopic spay.

Laparoscopic procedures are minimally invasive and generally provide quicker healing and recovery time. Laparoscopy also reduces bleeding and swelling for patients, making the recovery process easier.

Patients do not seem to have as much pain as typical spays, though we often send them home with pain medicine, just in case. Recovery is also much quicker. Pets just need to rest for a few days (if possible), and then they should be back to normal.

Laparoscopic procedures are easier on your pet, meaning they will be back to their normal selves more quickly. It is our goal to provide the highest standard of veterinary medicine, and laparoscopy is one way we achieve that goal. Using state of the art medical equipment, our doctors are highly trained in performing laparoscopic procedures.

Many owners struggle with the cost of the procedure. Though it is significantly more due to the cost of the instruments, the less invasive procedure that causes less pain and has a quicker recovery time is well worth it for many owners.

If you are interested in laparoscopic spays have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us today.
