Advantages for Your Pet
Lasers have been successfully used on humans for over 30 years. This knowledge gained in human medicine is also beneficial for your pets. Your pet’s health is as important to us as it is to you. Laser surgery is an exciting new option for safer, more comfortable treatment of your pet. In many procedures, the laser can replace the scalpel and provide a better alternative to traditional surgery.
Why Laser Surgery?
Less Pain – The laser seals nerve endings as it “cuts.” As a result, your pet will experience less pain and be more comfortable post-operatively.
Less Bleeding – The laser seals small blood vessels during surgery. This speeds many procedures, reducing the time your pet needs to be under anesthesia, which further reduces possible complications.
Less Swelling – Laser energy does not crush, tear or bruise tissue because the only thing that touches your pet is an invisible beam of light.
What does this mean for my pet?
Reduced risk of infections. As the laser removes diseased tissue, it seals the skin and reduces the amount of bacteria present.
Precision--The laser can remove unhealthy tissue while minimizing adverse effects to healthy surrounding tissue.
Quick return to normal activities. Healing is rapid and there is less post operative discomfort and a better course of healing.
What types of procedures can a laser perform?
The laser is ideal for a wide variety of surgical procedures for cats and dogs. Laser surgery is commonly used in soft tissue-surgical procedures such as:
Spays and neuters
Oral and dental procedures
