Laparoscopic Surgery and How It Benefits Your Pet
Laparoscopic surgery is less invasive than traditional surgery, requiring a smaller incision and resulting in less pain for the patient. A tiny camera is inserted through the small incision to allow the veterinarian to better visualize the internal organs and perform the procedure with greater precision and less tissue handling.
Pets that have undergone laparoscopic surgery recover faster and can return to normal activities much sooner. We’re pleased to offer this state-of-the-art service so your pet can receive the best possible care before, during, and after their surgery.
Unlike traditional surgery, laser surgery is cleaner, more precise, and facilitates a faster, less painful recovery for pets. The surgical laser cauterizes as it cuts, sealing off blood vessels and nerve endings. This surgical method is especially useful for mass removals and other soft tissue procedures that could benefit from the laser’s cauterizing properties.
From soft tissue to orthopedic surgery, our veterinarians can accommodate patients with a wide variety of needs. We know that having your pet undergo surgery can be very stressful, regardless of the safety measures implemented. After all, they are your best friend. As pet owners ourselves, our team understands this, and you can be assured that we will answer any questions you have about the procedure and how to care for your pet during their recovery.
