This paper provides an overview of the basic principles of laparoscopy, the equipment and surgical instruments required, anesthesia and patient considerations, insufflation techniques, and specific laparoscopic procedures in veterinary medicine, such as biopsy, cystotomy, enterotomy, cryptorchidectomy, and gastropexy. Methods: Published peer-reviewed reports were used to write this short review paper. Results: The use of laparoscopy is enormously beneficial over open surgery. Published literature suggests using laparoscopy to reduce blood loss. Laparoscopy which is a minimally invasive surgery provide better visualization, less pain and scarring, faster recovery times, and fewer complications than traditional open surgery.
