I agree, Pixel had a laparoscopic ovariectomy. (meaning that they only take the ovaries, not the uterus) I did a lot of research, and decided this was the best choice for her.
One thing to keep in mind, however, is that it is also LARGELY the experience of the surgeon in terms of which is the better option. I checked into a NUMBER of veterinary hospitals, and got LOTS of recommendations before choosing. The place I went does close to 1000 of these procedures a year. If I had to chose between a traditional spay by a very experienced surgeon who had worked on a lot of toy breed dogs, I'd chose that any day over a surgeon or practice new to laparoscopy.
