Your pet's health is as important to us as it is to you. We are pleased offer laser surgery for the most comfortable care of your pet. In our surgical procedures the laser replaces the scapel and provides a better alternative to traditional surgery.
What is a laser?
A laser is a device that generates an intense beam of light at a specific wavelenght.
Are lasers new?
No. Medical lasers have been proven to work for more than 20 years. Computer technology has made laser use possible in veterinary medicine. We are pleased to be among the first veterinary practices in the United States to utilize laser surgery specifically developed for animals.
What procedures can a laser perform?
Laser is ideal for a wide variety of surgical procedures. We are using laser surgery for ALL surgery we do. We use it for elective surgeries and for oral, ophthalmic, orthopedic, urogenital and abdominal surgery.

How does a laser work?
Our patients are treated with a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, the most widely used type of medical laser in the world. This laser generates an invisible beam of light that vaporizes tissue.
Because the laser beam can be precisely controlled, it removes or cuts only a thin layer of tissue at one time, leaving the surrounding areas unaffected. This level of control allows us to be extremely precise in every laser surgery, and results in minimal amounts of tissue damage.
Why laser surgery?
- Less Pain - The laser seals nerve endings as it ²cuts,² so your pet will have reduced pain after the surgery.
- Less bleeding - The laser seals small blood vessels during surgery.
- Less swelling - Laser energy does not crush, tear or bruise because there is no physical contact with the tissue. That means less pain!
What does this mean for my pet?
- Less pain - Patients are far more comfortable after laser surgery!
Reduced risk of infection - The laser sterilizes as it removes diseased tissue, killing bacteria that cause infection.
- Precision - The laser can remove unhealthy tissue without affecting or removing surrounding healthy tissue.
- Quick return to normal activities - Healing is rapid and there is less post-operative discomfort.
