Find out what veterinarians are saying about Aesculight and VetScalpel CO2 lasers.
We love our Aesculight CO2 laser and would never practice without it!
I have found that we need to do very little to sell our laser to our clients. They already know the benefits of laser. They accept it readily and they want it for their pets. The laser has produced profits from the start.
Sasha had a mouth tumor and had laser surgery to eliminate having stitches in her mouth. The laser surgery was a lot better for Sasha and she could eat more freely after the surgery. I would recommend to anyone to have laser surgery at your Veterinary Clinic. The staff was very caring and helpful in this decision. Sasha is an elderly dog (twelve years) and the laser surgery eliminated the pain she would have had if regular surgery had been done.
In February 2008, my twelve-year-old Lhasa Apso was diagnosed with an upper gum area cancer. I came to Jim Antunano, DVM, in April for a second opinion and to discuss treatment options other than chemotherapy. We agreed to surgically remove the infected area using laser surgery technology. Our dog lost a few teeth, some gum area and a small part of her palate. However, she recovered remarkably well with minimal swelling and no bleeding, and has been doing fine for six months.
Thank you to Aesculight for providing leads and the encouraging information about laser surgery. I cannot believe all vets have not yet converted to lasers! The cost was not prohibitive, in fact, it was about the same as the old style surgery with a one to two night stay and so much easier on the kittens.
I am very happy that I elected to have the laser surgery performed on my 17 year old cat who suffers from chronic renal failure. The type of surgery he needed did not lend itself to conventional surgical methods. The choice was really one of euthanasia or laser surgery. The DVM who performed the surgery did an excellent job in preparing my old guy for the anesthesia, taking care to perform preliminary testing and supporting him throughout the surgery and recovery on IV fluids. Jim Sox is so much happier and healthier now. I feel as though I have given him several months, maybe a year or two, of quality life that he wouldn’t have had otherwise. He’s my little buddy!!!
With over 4,000 surgical laser installations at veterinary clinics across North America, there are millions of veterinary laser surgeries performed each year. There are tens of millions of companion pets in the USA and Canada who thus-far have benefited from the miracles of veterinary laser surgery. These pages are devoted to some of the testimonials that we have received from many happy pet owners about their pets’ laser surgeries.
Nice to have a faster and better healing process available!
Had laser surgery at Chambers Creek Veterinary... very happy, excellent results and highly recommend laser surgery.
The best, most ethical, most painless surgery any of our pets have had.
Yes, it is safe, reliable, and more comfortable for your pet that you love so much. You feel more secure with the operation if it's laser surgery.
Recovery was rapid ... absolutely no problems. Pet is doing great.
Very pleased with the results. Seems to be a great alternative to routine surgery that is far less invasive that by the conventional route with much less pain for the pet!
I had surgery for my pet performed at South Seminole Animal Hospital and the surgery went great! I would definitely recommend laser surgery to other pet owners.
I took my pet to Northwest Veterinary Hospital and the procedure was much better than the old method. I would recommend laser surgery.
We were very pleased with the procedure and would absolutely recommend laser surgery to other pet owners.
I took my pet to Boston Road Animal Clinic. It was my first experience with the laser procedure and was pleased with the results. Less trauma to the tissue, quick healing and it didn't seem to be so painful for my pet afterwards. I recommended the laser surgery to a friend and they have already had a similar procedure done!
With reference to Boco's recent surgery using the surgical laser. We were extremely happy with the fact that there was less bleeding and swelling! Boco didn't appear to have much post-surgical pain and her recovery was very quick. We would highly recommend this laser treatment to any pet owner that may be considering surgery. The love and care shown to Boco by our Veterinarian and staff is always appreciated.
Laser surgery worked great!
My veterinarian, Dr. Terri Perkins-Lewis, Flushing Veterinary Hospital, Flushing New York, is wonderful and deserves commendation! My pet had laser surgery and it helped her stomatitis tremendously. I would absolutely recommend laser surgery if necessary.
I liked that there was very little swelling, no bleeding, no stitches and the recovery was much easier on him.
We took our pet to Eau Claire Animal Hospital in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. I was glad to hear that the healing time would be faster and less painful. I believe that was so. She was spayed and is healed very nicely.
The glued sutures were very clean, with no subsequent infection. My animal went home after surgery with pain medication that lasted three days, and she was able to walk comfortably while taking the medication; however, she slept a lot. By the fourth day she was doing well without the medication with limited supervised movement. I feel that the healing process was faster using laser surgery.
The laser surgical procedure received by my pet saved her life. Thank you so much for your information and help. Yes, I would recommend laser surgery to other pet owners.
My dog healed rapidly and with less medication. It looks like she never had a surgery. It's fantastic.
