We have a Aesculight CO2 Surgical Laser.
Concerned about the discomfort of surgery?
We know how you feel. We have pets too.
You’re scheduling an elective procedure for your pet. While you know that the procedure needs to be done, you’re having second thoughts because of the associated pain and discomfort. We understand that because we hear comments all day long from concerned pet owners just like you.
DID YOU KNOW…that most surgical procedures can now be performed with a LASER?
YES! That same tool that is used in human medicine has been adapted for use on animals. We have always made great efforts to lessen the discomfort to pets undergoing surgery. However, with new technology we can do even better. Laser surgery makes it much better for several reasons:
*Seals Nerve Endings! Lasers cut tissue with a beam of light, which seals the nerve endings so there is very little pain when they wake up.
*Seals Blood Vessels! Lasers also seal blood vessels as they cut so there is usually no need for bandaging after surgery.
*Seals Lymphatic Vessels! Lasers seal the lymph vessels in the skin, which nearly eliminates any swelling after surgery.
*A “No Touch” Delivery System! Lasers cut without touching which eliminates much of the trauma associated with standard techiques.
*More Precise! Lasers all the surgeon to be able to perform surgery with more precision.
Faster recovery! The usage of the CO2 Laser for surgery will speed up the recovery of almost any surgical procedure. Pets undergoing laser surgery generally recover faster with fewer side effects. Less bleeding, less pain, and less swelling allow for this faster recovery. We are attempting to adapt laser technique to as many procedures as possible. To find out whether your pet’s elective surgery can be done with laser, please inquire.
The cost for laser surgery? Yes, it does cost a little more. However, with the improvement in recovery time and the reduction of side effects, the overall expense may not be that much different. The laser fee is an additional $95.00.
