SO WHAT IS LASER SURGERY & HOW DOES IT BENEFIT MY PET?

Laser Surgery is a state-of-the-art surgical tool that offers the safest and least painful treatment for your pets.

The laser is an intense beam of light. Dr. Callicott uses an instrument to control the beam of light to precisely perform surgical procedures.

 

THE BENEFITS: 

Less Pain

Laser surgery allows the nerve endings of the tissue to become sealed off. The use of the laser for surgery is far less painful than the traditional surgical blade.

Less Bleeding and Less Swelling

As with the nerve endings, the laser light also seals small blood vessels during surgery. The sealed blood vessels results in less bleeding, a reduced amount of swelling and a quicker procedure.

Precision

The laser light surgery is very precise. It allows your veterinary surgeon to only affect or remove the involved tissue. The laser leaves the surrounding tissue untouched. The traditional surgical tools used do not provide such accuracy.

Decreased Risk of Infection

The laser light itself has high heat. While the surgery is being performed the heat from the light kills bacteria through the affected area. Decreased bacteria with the procedure leads to a decreased chance of infection.

 

Laser surgery can be recommended for a variety of procedures:

  • Declaws

  • Spays

  • Neuters

  • Small Skin Tumor Removals

  • Cyst Removals

  • Abdominal Obstructions

  • and Much More...
