Benefits of Laser Surgery for Pets

The use of laser surgery may eliminate the need for E Collars, in some cases.

In recent years, many veterinarians are now being trained in using laser to perform various surgical procedures, instead of using the traditional scalpel blade. Procedures that are now being done increasingly with laser include standard soft tissue surgeries including spays and castrations, lump removals, as well as declaws in cats. Orthopedic procedures are also being done routinely with lasers.

Amongst the many benefits of laser surgery include much less bleeding at the surgical site, as well as not needing any sutures, in most cases. There is significantly much less pain, and healing has been shown to be accelerated when using laser over traditional surgical techniques.  It is believed that circulation is better maintained with laser surgery.  The use of E collars, bandages, and wraps is also much reduced, as most pets will usually leave the surgical site alone when done with laser therapy.
