A safe alternative to traditional surgery.
Concerned about the discomfort of surgery? We know how you feel. We have pets too. You're scheduling an elective procedure for your pet. While you know that the procedure needs to be done, you're having second thoughts because of the associated pain and discomfort. We understand that because we hear comments all day long from concerned pet owners just like you.
Laser surgery makes it much better for several reasons:
Faster recovery! The usage of the CO 2 LASER for surgery will speed up the recovery of almost any surgical procedure. Pets undergoing laser surgery generally recover faster with fewer side effects. Less bleeding, less pain, and less swelling allow for this faster recovery.
We have used our surgical LASER since 2001 and have adapted many of our surgical procedures to be performed using the LASER. The feline declaw is one of the procedures that has been revolutionized through the use of the CO2 LASER. To find out whether your pet's elective surgery can be done with laser, please inquire.
Yes, it does cost a little more. However, with the improvement in recovery and the reduction of side effects, the overall expense may not be that much different. If you are interested in the laser option, please inquire. The laser option fees vary, depending on the surgical procedure. We'll gladly discuss your options and fees.
Laser surgery is a safe alternative to traditional surgery. As the name implies, this particular type of surgery is performed using a highly focused, handheld laser beam.
Unlike traditional surgery, laser surgery vaporizes soft tissue while simultaneously cauterizing it. This reduces the time it takes to perform the procedure and efficiently kills any bacteria in its path.
When available, laser surgery is often preferable to traditional surgery for these reasons:
- Less pain and bleeding
- Decreased swelling
- Reduced risk of infection
- Increased precision
- Increased speed of procedure/decreased anesthesia time
- Quicker overall recovery
