Veterinary Laser Surgery & Therapy for Your Pet
Laser surgery is a breakthrough technology that allows your veterinarian to perform surgery with pinpoint precision, enabling your pet to recover much quicker than from traditional surgery. CO2 lasers are able to seal nerve endings as they are cut, significantly reducing pain following the operation. And, when blood vessels within the soft tissue are also sealed, blood loss is kept to a minimum.
Laser surgery is often used for a number of surgical procedures, including:
- Ear surgery
- Oral surgery
- Tumor/mass removal
There are many advantages to veterinary laser surgery:
- Reduced pain
- Minimized blood loss
- Lower risk of infection
- Faster recovery time
What Is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is a non-invasive, sterile, and drug-free method that stimulates the body to heal from within. Many injuries, including factures and wounds, plus pain from arthritis, dermatological problems, and other chronic conditions can all benefit from properly administered laser therapy. Pets usually find the laser feels like a massage and is very relaxing for both cats and dogs.
The veterinarians and veterinary technicians at Edmonds Veterinary Hospital are highly skilled in laser technology. If you would like more information about these state-of-the-art techniques, we encourage you to ask your veterinarian during your pet’s wellness exam or call us at (425) 775-3449.
