Is Laser Surgery Right For Your Pet?
YOUR PET DESERVES THE BEST POSSIBLE CARE AVAILABLE.
That is why Granada Veterinary Clinic offers Laser Surgery options.
What is a Laser?
A laser is a device that generates an intense beam of light that can cut, seal or vaporize tissue. Lasers have been successfully used on humans for over 30 years. This knowledge gained in human medicine is beneficial for your pets. Your pet’s health is as important to us as it is to you. Advances in veterinary medicine now allow us to offer laser surgery as an exciting new option for safe, comfortable treatment. In many procedures, the laser can replace the scalpel and provide an alternative to traditional surgery.
Why Laser Surgery?
The laser seals nerve endings as it “cuts”. As a result, your pet will be comfortable post operatively.
The laser seals small blood vessels during surgery. This speeds many procedures, reducing the time your pet needs to be under anesthesia, which further reduces possible complications.
Laser energy does not crush, tear or bruise tissue because the only thing that touches your pet is an invisible beam of light.
The Benefits of Laser Surgery?
As the laser removes diseased tissue, it seals the skin and reduces the amount of bacteria present.
The laser can remove unhealthy tissue with precision, while minimizing adverse effects to healthy surrounding tissue.
Healing is rapid and pets quickly return to their normal activities.
Laser Surgery Versatility
The laser is ideal for a wide variety of surgical procedures for dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, exotics, horses and other pets. Laser surgery is commonly used in soft-tissue surgical procedures. Your veterinarian will be able to tell you if your pet would benefit from the use of laser in their surgical procedure. Common procedures include:
