The purpose of this study was to evaluate the surgical technique of Laparoscopic ovariohysterectomy (LOVH) in dogs. LOVH was evaluated in eight healthy intact bitches. The surgical procedure was applied under xylazine- ketamine anesthesia; insufflation was performed by CO2 at the pressure of 12 mm Hg. Monopolar electrocautery and titanium clips were used for haemostasis. LOVH was performed successfully in all bitches. No surgical complications were observed during surgery and one month after surgery. The mean surgical time (incision to suture) was 35 minutes (ranged 45-25). In conclusion, Laparoscopic ovariohysterectomy in a dog could be an alternative procedure to conventional ovariohystrectomy.
