Laparoscopic Cryptorchidectomy 

Cryptorchidism is where one or both of a dog's testicle fail to descend into the scrotum. Sometimes referred to as retained testicles these can remain in the groin (inguinal canal) or abdomen.

We recommend that these retained testicles are removed and the dog castrated as the testicles may become twisted (testicular torsion) or become tumours.

To remove abdominal testicles an inavsive laparotomy procedure is normally required. However we routinely remove these with keyhole surgery - laparoscopic cryptorchidectomy.

If your dog is affected by this condition, please feel free to contact us.
