Laparoscopic Bitch Spay


Laparoscopic Bitch Spay


Minimally invasive surgery has transformed the way surgical procedures have been performed on humans over the past twenty years and it is becoming increasingly uncommon for human surgeons to have to resort to open techniques. Veterinary surgery is treading the same route with many clinics now performing many or all of their bitch spays laparoscopically. The benefits are self evident and the procedure is well received, indeed sought out, by clients. Many clinics already own flexible endoscopy equipment and thus have much of the basic equipment (light source, suction, camera, monitor etc) necessary for rigid endoscopy and laparoscopy. Additional equipment and training, and therefore expense, is required to perform laparoscopy. However, no-one does liver biopsies on a daily basis and this expense must be justified. Most surgeons starting laparoscopy would consider the bitch spay as the core procedure and main reason for investing in the equipment. As a routine procedure that is done on a regular basis, it will bring in the revenue to pay for the equipment.


By the end of this course you should have an understanding of:

  • Equipment required for laparoscopy
  • Instrument handling techniques
  • Basic laparoscopic principles
  • Principles of electrosurgery and haemostasis
  • Laparoscopic ovariectomy
  • Laparoscopic ovariohysterectomy


Comprehensive course notes, refreshments and lunch each day.

Surgeons with no or minimal experience in laparoscopy who wish to maximise their investment in equipment and improve their skills in laparoscopy to enable them to perform more complex procedures
