Laser Surgery

We are proud to be able to offer laser surgery as a progressive new option for our patients. Long used in human healthcare, laser technology is a proven service with multiple applications. Laser is an intense beam of light that can replace a traditional scalpel. Laser energy seals nerve endings and blood vessels as it moves through tissue resulting in less pain and less bleeding.

Recommended procedures for laser surgery include spays, neuters, overgrown nails, oral mass removal, entropion and gingival overgrowth.

Using the laser we can remove small warts and skin tags using only a local block and without needing to suture there is less complication with pets licking open their incision.

Do you have a Boston, Pug, Bull dog or Persian? These pets with the flat face (brachycephalic) tend to have obstructed nostrils and elongated a soft palate that adds to their difficulty in breathing and can lead to respiratory collapse. With a laser these problems can easily be corrected.
