We are proud to offer the latest in laser surgery as one of the many highly technical options for your pet. We utilize laser surgery so we can provide the best possible healthcare for your four-legged family member. Just as with the latest human surgical lasers, the benefits of laser surgery for your pet include:
- Reduced Pain
- Reduced Bleeding
- Reduced Swelling
- Reduced Risk of Infection
- Extreme Surgical Precision
- Faster Recovery
A surgical laser emits a highly concentrated beam of light which is the only thing that touches your pet. Our laser seals nerve endings so patients are much more comfortable during and after surgery. It also seals blood vessels, dramatically decreasing bleeding, while making the surgical field easier to see.
Since nothing but the beam touches the patient, trauma to tissue is reduced. It also seals the lymphatics, reducing swelling after surgery. While the laser can be used to make large incisions, it is so precise that it can selectively remove only a few cells at a time “erasing” unhealthy tissue. And our laser kills any bacteria along its path, reducing the risk of infection.
West Palm Animal Clinic has made a substantial investment in laser equipment and training for one simple reason-your pet can have a less painful and faster recovery.
