Laser surgery has been used in human health care for more than 25 years and your pet can also realize the benefits of this advanced technology.
For Carling Animal Hospital's elective surgeries (eg. spay and neuters), there is no charge to the client for the laser surgery portion. Laser surgery utilizes an intense beam of light which acts to seal nerve endings and cauterize small blood vessels as it cuts . By sealing nerve endings, the transmission of pain signals to the brain is altered. Since the laser also cauterizes, small blood vessels are sealed to stop bleeding.
Carling Animal Hospital began offering laser surgery for pets in October, 2001. Whether it be a spay, neuter, growth or wart removal, exploratory or orthopedic procedure (cruciate ligament, etc.), the benefits of Laser Surgery include less pain, swelling, and bleeding.
