Abstract:

Ovariohysterectomy is a routine procedure that is recommended as one means of population control in cats. Different surgical approaches have been described in the literature for ovariohysterectomy in cats. Six adult queen cats of age 1-3 years, weighing 2.5 – 4 kg presented for ovariohysterectomy were selected for the study. A small incision stab technique on left lateral flank was performed. Surgical approach was evaluated by recording extent of hemorrhage, ease of location and exteriorization of ovaries and uterus, duration of surgery, post-operative complications and time required for complete wound healing. The findings of the present study established that the technique of small incision stab approach for ovariohysterectomy is easy, free of complications, requires a shorter time and also less expensive.
