Laser is a modern veterinary technology used to make precise incisions during surgery. The laser seals nerve endings and blood vessels as it cuts, giving it many benefits over traditional scalpel surgery. First, by sealing nerve endings, it reduces postoperative pain. Second, by closing off blood vessels it reduces bleeding. Third, the heat from the laser kills bacteria and thus reduces the risk of infection at the incision site. Thanks to all these benefits, your pet will enjoy a much quicker recovery from surgery.
Nearly any soft tissue surgery can be performed with laser, including spay/neuter procedure, tumor removal, eye surgery, and more. The laser can be safely used for dogs, cats, exotic pets, horses, and farm animals.
