Laser Surgery

What is laser surgery?

Surgical procedures that use a CO2 laser beam to make atraumatic incisions without the use of a scalpel or scissor.

What can it be used for?

  • Ear crops
  • Feline declaws
  • Growth removals

How does it benefit my pet?

  • Less pain
  • Less bleeding
  • Less infection
  • Less inflammation and discomfort after surgery
  • Ability to resume to normal activities sooner

How is it able to do this?

The laser seals small blood vessels as it cuts, which significantly simplifies the surgical procedure. The laser ablation is so precise that it can selectively remove only a few cells at a time, and the laser beam seals nerve endings, so patients are much more comfortable after treatment. The laser beam kills any bacteria in its path, and also seals lymph nodes, resulting in less post operative swelling and infection.
