For World Spay day, on Tuesday, the Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinic will be offering discounts on a new spay procedure.
The procedure, known as LOVE Spay, uses laparoscopy to shorten the recovery time for dogs from almost two weeks to a few days, allowing pets to wear a cone for less time.
“It’s a procedure where we do a removal of the ovaries using laparoscopic technique. So, the beauty of that is that we’re introducing just a little, tiny keyhole incision to perform the surgery," said Dr. Joel Conn, the Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinic Owner and Practice Administrator.
“These dogs are back to the park in 2 to 3 days. No pain, no bleeding, really fast recovery versus a traditional, conventional spay, which is typically 2 weeks of recovery time,” said Conn.
The clinic has done 10-15 of these new procedures so far.
The discount will be offered through the end of February.
The clinic will be providing the service to local shelters as well, to help lessen the demand of monitoring dogs for the lengthy recovery time of the normal spay procedures.
