Numerous procedures from amputations, sterilizations to simple tumor removals have been performed on our rescue dogs. Our recovery and rehabilitation time is cut 80% and because of this we are able to re-home sooner. This type of surgery is preferred due to the excellent condition the dogs are in post-op. We have been aware of less stress, pain and the dogs being in better emotional frame. One surgery dealing with a gross oral tumor would NOT have been possible if not for laser surgery. Our veterinarian is a ‘master’ at laser surgery technique and has returned good health to every dog benefiting from this type of surgery with his skill.
