In using Laser we affect a decrease in pain, swelling, and bleeding during surgery. The laser is used in place of a traditional scalpel. It is very useful in almost every procedure, including such procedures as lump removal, oral and skin surgery. We have observed a significant reduction in post operative discomfort for all of our pets when procedures involve laser versus the traditional scalpel method. The laser is so precise in its capabilities that it allows us to do procedures that were once thought to be impossible or at least very risky. When used during the removal of a pancreatic tumor the laser can seal the organ. When used during the reduction of a long soft palate in Bull Dogs, it dramatically reduces the risk of bleeding.
