Comparative study of two different laparotomy techniques and post surgical complications for ovariohysterectomy in cats were studied. The animals were randomly divided into two equal (n = 6) groups, A and B. In group A, ovariohysterectomy was performed by ventral midline approach, where as in group B, ovariohysterectomy was performed by flank approach. The duration of surgery, length of surgical incision, cost of surgery, complications peri and post-operatively were compared. In cats subjected to ovariohysterectomy through lateral flank approach had minimal hemorrhage at incisional site. Further, the length of surgical incision, time required for the complete surgical procedure, cost of the surgery and post operative healing complications were all significantly lower in animals subjected to ovariohysterectomy through a lateral left flank incision. It was concluded that the spaying through left lateral flank approach offers considerably more advantages than a ventral midline approach.
