The Benefits of Laser Surgery: A less Painful Alternative for Your Pet

Circle L Animal Hospital is proud to offer laser surgery as a progressive new option for clients who want one of the safest and least painful treatments for their pets. Laser surgery works by employing a laser (rather than a scalpel) during surgery, using it to make highly precise incisions by vaporizing the water found in tissues.

Benefits Include:

  • Reduced Pain: The laser seals nerve endings as it moves through tissue. Your pet will feel less pain after surgery.
  • Less Bleeding: The beam seals small blood vessels during surgery, resulting in less bleeding and quicker procedures.
  • Minimized Swelling: With this technology, only light comes into contact with the tissue, causing minimal swelling.
  • Extreme Precision: The laser enables your surgeon to only affect or remove the target tissue, leaving the healthy surrounding tissue untouched.
  • Reduced Risk of Infection: The high heat of laser energy kills bacteria and microorganisms as it moves through diseased areas, reducing the chance of infection.
  • Quicker Recovery: Your pet is likely to feel less discomfort after surgery, and return home to normal activities sooner.
