Laser Surgery

Lasers have been successfully used on humans for over 30 years. This knowledge gained in human medicine is beneficial for your pets. Your pet's health is as important to us as it is to you. Hundreds of veterinarians are offering laser surgery as an exciting new option for safer, more comfortable treatment. In many procedures, the laser can replace the scalpel and provide a better alternative to traditional surgery.

The use of the CO2 veterinary surgical laser improves our capabilities by allowing us to provide better pain management, less bleeding and a faster recovery time. All these add to the value added service that we provide to our clients, and the safety level we try to provide to the patient, their pet.

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, thereby reducing inflammatory responses and hastening healing.

Quicker Recovery - decreased pain, bleeding and swelling mean that the patient can return to normal activity and the home environment sooner.
What does this mean for my pet?

Reduced risk of infection - 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.

Drs. Anléu, Jones, Maro, Carver, and Brown want to wish you and your family a safe, fun-filled summer. We are here to help you keep your pet parasite and Lyme disease-free.
