Laser Surgery

Veterinary surgery can be considered minor (a few stitches) or major (an orthopedic procedure). In order to provide your pet with advanced, safe and comprehensive surgical care, our hospitals are equipped with a state-of-the-art surgery suite, highly sophisticated anesthesia machines and the latest in patient-monitoring devices.

All patients are assessed the day of surgery and anesthetics are chosen based on your pet’s specific needs. Our fully-trained staff monitors each patient at all times, ensuring the maximal safety possible throughout the procedure and post operatively. Our surgeons are gloved, masked and fully gowned, using sterilized instruments for all surgical procedures to minimize post-operative infection rates. From routine procedures, such as spays and neuters, to more complex orthopedic, soft-tissue and emergency surgeries, the veterinarians at Healthy Pets have decades of surgical experience and are ready to treat your pet if the need arises.

Pain management is an important part of our pre-operative, intra-operative and post-operative anesthetic and medical protocols. All surgical patients, including those undergoing routine procedures, receive pain control medication. During surgery, as well as during the recovery period, your pet is continuously monitored with a variety of devices, including pulse oximeter and ECG. In addition, an intravenous (IV) catheter is used to deliver fluids to your pet during surgery and during his or her recovery.

Laser Surgery

Healthy Pets is pleased to offer surgical laser options for many procedures including spays and neuters. In many procedures, the laser can replace the scalpel and provide a better alternative to traditional surgery.

Surgery performed with a laser can provide:

  • Less Pain – laser energy seals nerve endings as it moves through tissue. Your pet feels less pain post-operatively.
  • Less Bleeding– the laser seals small blood vessels during surgery, which allows the surgeon to perform surgeries with extraordinary precision. This also speeds some procedures and reduces the need for anesthesia.
  • Less Swelling– laser energy does not crush, tear or bruise because only a beam of intense light contacts the tissue.

Benefits of laser surgery:

  • Reduced risk of infection– the laser sterilizes as it removes diseased tissue, killing bacteria that causes infection.
  • Quicker return to normal activities– recovery is rapid and there is less post-operative discomfort.

Overall, the laser can reduce trauma to your pet, improve healing and may shorten time spent in the veterinary hospital. Ask your veterinary surgeon about the option of laser surgery for your pet.
