Laser Surgery

We use the Aesculight Surgical Laser to perform our surgeries. In laser surgery, a highly focused laser beam can efficiently ablate (vaporize) the living tissue, at the same time sealing capillaries, small blood vessels, lymphatics, and nerve endings. This provides the following  benefits to the patient:

 

  • Less Bleeding: As it cuts, the laser seals small blood vessels. This drastic reduction in bleeding enables a number of new surgical procedures that are not practical with conventional scalpel.

 

  • Less Pain: The CO2 laser beam seals nerve endings and lymphatics, resulting in less edema and pain. The patient experiences a far more comfortable post-operative recovery.

 

  • Reduced risk of infection: This is one of the unique features of the CO2 laser beam. It efficiently kills bacteria in its path, producing a sterilizing effect.

 

  • Quicker recovery time: Reduced risk of infection, less bleeding, less pain and less swelling often allow the patient a far quicker recovery after the surgery.

Acute moist dermatitis, more commonly known as hot spots, occurs due to a bacterial infection on your pet’s skin.

Anal gland disease, allergies to fleas or food ingredients, mange, tick bites, and inadequate grooming are the primary causes of hot spots in companion animals.
