WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LASER SURGERY FOR MY PET?
LESS PAIN AND INFLAMMATION
The laser seals nerve endings while it cuts thus resulting in less post-operative swelling and pain for your pet.
REDUCED RISK OF INFECTION
Surgical Infection is reduced due to the superheating of the tissues in the incision site, destroying any bacteria that are present at the time of surgery. The laser tip does not physically touch the targeted tissue during surgery, which also helps to reduce the risk of infection for your pet.
Because the laser seals the small blood vessels at the same time as it cuts, bleeding is drastically minimized. When there is little to no bleeding, the veterinary surgeon is able to complete the surgery more quickly and shorter procedures mean reduced anesthesia risks.
After laser surgery, your pet will generally have fewer side effects including less bleeding, less pain, and less swelling. This means your pet will experience a far more comfortable post-operative recovery.
In fact, almost any soft-tissue surgery may be performed with the CO2 laser. Routine procedures such as sterilization are commonly done with the laser. The laser is also used for skin tumor removal, eyelid surgery such as correction of entropion, some mouth and throat procedures and many others.
