Benson Boxer has had two occasions to have laser surgery in the past twelve months. Both times, I have been overwhelmed by the simplicity of the experience and the recovery time afterwards. His surgery in the past (at a former clinic) was for removal of cysts and it was a traumatic experience for both Benson and us, which we vowed never to consider cyst/lesion removals again, particularly as he gets older. Now with laser, he recovers so much faster, minimal to zero bleeding and the hardest thing about it was trying to convince him he had to take it easy! No swelling, no pain (albeit they were external lesions), but one was on the bottom of his paw and he was walking immediately, the other on his hind quarter and he was sitting on his stitches and didn’t know it! It’s as if it never happened!
