We treat our patients with a carbon
dioxide(CO2) laser which is the most advanced
type of laser in the medical field. CO2 lasers
produce an invisible beam that vaporizes water
normally found in the skin and other soft
tissue. The laser beam can be precisely
controlled so it can remove or cut a small
portion of tissue at one time while leaving
the surrounding tissue unaffected.
Pain - The laser seals nerve
endings as it moves through tissue. Your pet
will feel less pain after surgery. As the
laser removes diseased tissue it also kills
bacteria that causes infection.
Bleeding - The laser seals small
blood vessels during surgery, resulting in
less bleeding and quicker procedures.
Swelling - The laser does not
crush, tear or bruise the tissue because there
is no physical contact with the tissue. The
healing process is rapid and there is less
post-operative discomfort With laser
technology, only light comes into contact with
the tissue, causing minimal swelling.
Extreme Precision - The laser
enables your surgeon to only affect or remove
the target tissue, leaving the healthy
surrounding tissue untouched.

While a laser is
used for most surgical procedures, feline
declaws, skin tumor removals, and treatment of
oral conditions in particular is where the
laser proves it superiority over other
surgical methods. Our doctors will be able to
tell you if the procedure your pet needs can
be performed with a laser. The power of the
laser can be adjusted to allow the doctor to
perform very delicate surgeries removing a few
cells or a single ingrown hair follicle at a
time. Many animal lovers see the laser as the
most humane surgical option available.

option when choosing the best care for their
pets. Your veterinarian will be able to tell
you if the procedure for your pet needs can be
performed with a laser. For additional
