Veterinary Laparoscopy FAQs
What are the benefits of a LOVE spay?
A LOVE spay is short for a Laparoscopic OVE (ovariectomy). With this technique, 2-3 small incisions are made into the abdomen, and laparoscopic equipment is used to perform the procedure.
Why LOVE Spay?
- Laparoscopic spays have been shown to cause 65% less pain than traditional spays. This means a faster recovery and less trauma to the patient.
- There is less risk of infection with smaller surgical incisions.
- Activity restriction is only recommended for the first 2-3 days after a LOVE spay versus 7-14 days for a traditional spay.
- Improved visualization and magnifica- tion increases operative precision and reduces blood loss.
