Many surgical procedures, such as tumor removals, can benefit from the use of the surgical laser. Instead of cutting with a scalpel blade your veterinary surgeon uses the light from a laser beam to gently cut your pet’s tissue. There is usually less bleeding, less swelling, less pain and there is less of a chance for infection after surgery because only a laser beam contacts the tissue. Veterinary laser surgery is very precise and does not crush, tear, or bruise the tissue, aiding your pet’s recovery.
You will want to discuss the benefits of veterinary laser surgery with your doctor before your procedure. Our veterinarians will always let you know when laser surgery is or is not appropriate, and make the correct recommendation for your pet.
