At ABC Vet, we are offer laser surgery, one of the newer developments in the world of veterinary medicine. "Laser" is an acronym for Light Activation by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. We use concentrated light sources as a surgical tool. Einstein developed the theory in the 1920s and it has taken this long to perfect the art, science and equipment to the point of being practical in veterinary medicine.
Laser surgery minimizes bleeding, reduces pain and swelling and promotes more rapid healing. When your pet undergoes laser surgery, he or she recovers more quickly and face less post-operative pain. Laser surgery also is more precise and greatly reduces the risk of post-surgical infection.
The list of possible procedures that can benefit from the advent of the laser is growing every day. Here is a short list of the types of procedures that may be familiar to you as a pet owner:
- Spays and neuters
- Declaws. This is one of the most frequent uses of the laser. The pain reduction is remarkable.
- Ear surgeries, especially for those dogs with chronic ear infections that require reconstructive-type surgeries.
- Eye and eyelid surgeries
- Oral surgery
- Lick granulomas
- Lump or tumor removals
