The present study evaluated and compared the oxidative stress status of dogs undergoing laparoscopic or open ovariectomy. Twelve healthy female dogs were divided into two groups according to the type of the surgical procedure, laparoscopic or open ovariectomy. Plasma total oxidant status (TOS), total antioxidant status (TAS) and oxidative stress index (OSI) levels for the evaluation of oxidative stress were determined. Increases in plasma TOS and OSI levels and decreases in TAS levels were observed in both groups after surgery. The TOS level was significantly lower in the laparoscopic ovariectomy group compared with the open surgery group. Laparoscopic ovariectomy is a safe and beneficial surgical alternative to traditional ovariectomy with respect to oxidative stress status in dogs.
