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.
- 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
- 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
- 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.
