We are committed to give your pet our best.
We use the new technology of ultrasonic surgery (Harmonic Scalpel is a trademark of ETHICON) in all our surgical procedures.
In recent years veterinarians have offered minimally invasive ovariectomy and ovariohysterectomy with the use of electrosurgical units. We are the first hospital in Southern California performing the entire procedure laparoscopically using the same ultrasonic devices used by surgeons in humans. The procedure is performed completely inside of the patient. No sutures are left inside of the abdomen and the procedure takes 5-15 minutes depending of the size of the patient. Your pet will recover very fast and will be able to go home a few ours after the procedure. There will be less pain than the experienced with the invasive open abdomen celiotomy. Your pet will have a speedy return to normal.
