Surgical Care

Surgical care

We pride ourselves in providing excellent surgical care for your pets. Our doctor performs routine spays and neuters as well as declaws, lump removals, some orthopedic surgeries, and a few miscellaneous procedures as well. Our facility is equipped with a surgical laser which reduces pain, swelling, inflammation, and bleeding as well as a therapy laser which promotes healing and pain reduction. Do not hesitate to ask the doctors about any procedures that your pet needs, if we do not or have not done them, we can recommend an appropriate veterinarian.

The Miracles of surgical lasers... are now available for your pet!

What is laser surgery? Traditional surgery with a scalpel or scissors can bruise or crush tissue. When we use the laser, only an intense beam of laser light touches your pet, which minimizes the pain, swelling, an bleeding often associated with surgery.

How does laser surgery work? The laser has the unique ability to vaporize or "erase" tissue. The laser can be used to make incisions as well as to erase unhealthy tissue. The laser is so precise that we can selectively remove only a few cells at a time. The laser seals nerve endings, so patients are much more comfortable after surgery. Not only does the laser kill any bacteria in its path, it also seals lymphatics, so there is much less swelling post-operatively.

What are the advantages to laser surgery? We are proud to be one of the first veterinary hospitals to provide the many advantages of the laser technology to our patients. Now your pet can benefit from the same properties of a laser that human patients have experienced for over twenty years: less pain, swelling, and discomfort after surgery, and the ability to resume normal activities sooner. Our practice has made this substantial investment in order to offer you the best possible healthcare for your pet.

Is laser surgery appropriate for my pet? A laser can perform a wide variety of surgical procedures on cats, dogs, and other animals. Our veterinarians will be able to tell you if your pet is a candidate for laser surgery, and will help you decide if this is the best treatment option for your pet.

All patients scheduled for surgery must be fasted after 10:00pm the night before the surgery (unless directed otherwise) and be at the clinic between 7:30 and 8:00am the morning of the surgery. This ensures an appropriate amount of time for the Doctor to evaluate the patient before the procedure begins.

Surgeries are performed on Monday,Tuesday,Thursday and Fridays. Sometimes special arrangements will be made for a different day to accommodate the needs of the patient. Generally, surgeries are not an out-patient procedure and do require some hospitalization time. If you are unsure how long your animal needs to stay please ask.
