Spaying or ovariohysterectomy refers to the removal of the ovaries and uterus. Laparoscopic spay procedure only removes the ovaries and the uterus and cervix are not removed. Spay surgeries are done with the patient under general anesthesia and monitored with our ecg, temperature, respiration, carbon dioxide, and oxygen blue tooth monitor system.
Spaying or female neutering will prevent future problems with the ovaries, uterus and make mammary tumors much less likely. Females left intact, may develop an infection in the uterus called pyometra, which is a very serious life threatening condition. Ovarian cysts can develop in older intact females along with cancerous mammary tumors. Unwanted pregnancies are avoided if a female is spayed around 6 months of age.
