What is a laser?

A laser is a device that generates an intense beam of light at a specific wavelength.

Are lasers new?
Lasers have been successfully used on humans for over 30 years. This human experience is proving to be beneficials for pets and their owners. We are pleased to be among the first veterinary practices to offer laser surgery for your precious pet.

What types of procedures can a laser perform?
A laser is ideal for a wide variety of surgical procedures for dogs, cats, birds, and other animals. Laser surgery can correct many common conditions such as cysts, tumors, warts, and infections that may occur around the eyes, ears in the mouth and else where on the skin. Laser surgery is also ideal and becoming more popular for your common spaying/neutering and cat declaws.

What does this mean for my pet?
Reduced risk of infection–The laser as it removes diseased tissue, killing bacteria that can cause infection.
Precision–The laser can remove unhealthy tissue while minimizing adverse affects to healthy surrounding tissue.
Quick return to normal activities–Recovery is rapid and there is less post-operative discomfort.
Laser procedures reduce the trauma–to your pet, improve mouth and else where on the skin. Laser surgery is also ideal and becoming more popular for your common spaying/neutering and cat declaws.

On the day of surgery, a technician will conduct a detailed review of the surgical plan with the pet owner, answering any questions or concerns. After check-in, the patient receives the pre-surgical exam to determine the appropriate anesthesia protocol; blood work may be performed to evaluate kidney and liver values as well as obtain white and red blood cell counts.

At the time of surgery, the anesthesia plan is implemented and the patient is closely monitored, including heart rate, respiratory rate, ECG, blood-oxygen level, and body temperature. Our surgical guidelines, procedures, protocols, and the expertise of our veterinary professionals provide assurance that your pet is receiving the highest standard of surgical care. Keeping the patient comfortable and ensuring a smooth recovery is our primary concern.

Our technician will call you when your family pet is recovered from anesthesia and ready for discharge. At that time, you will receive patient instructions including post-surgical home care and medications.
