Our state-of-the-art surgical suite, with laser surgery, provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures. This ranges from elective surgeries such as spays and neuters to extensive orthopedic procedures.
Laser surgery utilizes the light from a special laser to be the doctors cutting instrument in lieu of a scalpel. As the laser is cutting tissue, blood vessels are sealed off in a similar manner to cautery. Even better, nerve endings are sealed off as well. The result is better visibility for the surgeon due to the lack of blood in the surgical field. This which allows a better, swifter surgery. Surgical laser also helps to reduce post surgical pain, which, along with pain medications allows for faster healing.
Though declawing cats is a frequently controversial subject, there are times when it is a procedure that allows a cat to stay in a home which it would otherwise lose. That debate aside, we feel sure that a laser declaw makes a significantly less painful and less complicated surgery. If you have a kitty that needs to be declawed, laser surgery is definitely the way to go. We are pleased to offer laser surgery to the pets in our area!
