General Surgery

From your routine spay and neuter to your emergency exploratory surgery, we are able to do it all right here in our state of the art facility!

 

Orthopedic Surgery

Thanks to our mobile surgeon, Dr. James Roush, we are able to offer our clients orthopedic surgery right here in our facility.  

Therapeutic Laser (Cold Laser)

Our surgical laser cauterizes blood vessels and nerves for less pain after surgery. Dr. Nichols has been using the surgical laser for 16 years. The laser gives us many benefits over a traditional scalpel, such as greater precision, greater speed, and less pain. We have a technician monitoring anesthesia throughout your pet's entire procedure. Our monitors can track heart rate, respiration, oxygen and CO2 saturation, blood pressure, and temperature. Our anesthetics are administered for a short duration so pets wake up fast after anesthesia. We use pro-active pain management that is tailored to your pet's procedure. 

Benefits:

 

- Reduced Pain

The CO2 laser beam seals nerve endings as it cuts through tissue. This reduces the 

amount of pain the patient feels during and after surgery. 
 

- Reduced Bleeding

The CO2 laser beam cauterizes and seals small blood vessels as it cuts. This laser energy 

achieves hemostasis and provides the surgeon with a bloodless surgical field in most 

procedures.

 

- Reduced Swelling

There is no physical contact between the laser and the surgical region, eliminating the 

tearing and bruising of tissue associated with traditional surgical methods. Lymphatic 

vessels are also sealed.

 

- Reduced Infection

Laser energy acts as an antibacterial agent by producing high temperatures, effectively 

eliminating micro-organisms.

 

- Quicker Recovery

As a result of all of the above, laser surgery provides the benefit your clients will 

appreciate the most: a quicker recovery for their pet.
