Your pet's health is as important to us as it is to you. Laser surgery is a safer and more comfortable option where we can provide a better alternative to traditional methods.
- Less Pain - Laser energy seals nerve endings as it moves through the tissue. Your pet feels less pain post-operatively.
- Less Bleeding - The laser seals small blood vessels during surgery which allows your doctor to perform surgeries with extraordinary precision, This also speeds some procedures reducing the need for anesthesia.
- Less Swelling - Laser energy does not crush, tear or bruise because only a beam of intense light contacts the tissue.
Laser technology reduces the trauma to your pet, improves recovery, and often shortens hospital stays. Additional benefits include reduced risk of infection, precision and a quicker return to normal activities.
Pre-Anesthetic Blood Testing
One of our greatest concerns is the well being of your pet. Before putting your pet under anesthesia we perform a pre-anesthetic blood panel. The blood panel helps to alert the surgeon to the presence of any issues that may complicate the procedure. It can indicate the conditions of dehydration, anemia, infection, diabetes and/or kidney or liver disease. Having this information can significantly reduce anesthetic and surgical risk, and give you peace of mind as well as providing us with early detection and early intervention if a condition does exist. These tests become a part of your pet's permanent medical record, providing a baseline for future reference.
Monitoring of patients during anesthesia is done in two ways. First, a veterinary technician is with your pet throughout the procedure, from the beginning of anesthesia to recovery. Second, we have a computerized monitor that records heart rate, pulse rate, oxygen levels, blood pressure, respiration, ECG and body temperature. Our clinic strongly believes in compassionate, quality, medical care for our patients. When deemed necessary, patients will receive pain management to make them comfortable.
While we know you are anxious to know how your pet's procedure is going, we wait to make phone calls to owners when all the procedures are done. We want to remain focused on our patients and give undivided attention to the care of your pets until all pets are out of recovery.
