Surgery helps improve lives for many pets by correcting and even preventing certain illnesses. At Animal Care Veterinary Hospital, we perform both soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries. Our veterinarians are also trained in using a surgical laser, which is superior to a scalpel as it helps to speed your pet’s recovery.

Why Use a Surgical Laser for Pet Surgery?

A surgical laser cuts through tissue in a different way than a scalpel. Instead of bruising and puncturing the skin, the laser cauterizes the tissue and blood vessels as it cuts, which offers several benefits to your pet:

  • Reduces pain and inflammation
  • Reduces bleeding
  • Decreases the risk of infection
  • Decreases bruising

How We Ensure Your Pet’s Safety Before, During & After

No matter if your pet is having a routine spay/neuter surgery or a more complex orthopedic procedure, we use the same safety precautions to minimize their risks and maximize surgical success.

Safety protocols we employ:

  • Pre-anesthetic blood work and an exam prior to the procedure
  • IV catheter placement to supply fluids to your pet
  • A surgical technician who monitors your pet from start to finish
  • Monitoring equipment that tracks all your pet’s vitals
  • Pain medication to reduce discomfort throughout the procedure and recovery
