This paper aimed to study the feasibility of a new laparoscopic castration technique in male
dogs, evaluate the pain associated with it, and compare it with the classical orchiectomy. Surgical
times, pain scores, blood and salivary cortisol, and CRP were recorded and compared between the
two groups. The use of high-frequency bipolar forceps allowed quick and uneventful laparoscopic
procedures. The laparoscopic group had significantly lower pain scores, cortisol, and PCR values
than the orchiectomy group. No complications were seen in any group. Our results suggest that this
laparoscopic castration is a safe and beneficial surgical alternative to traditional orchiectomy in dogs.
