Find out what veterinarians are saying about Aesculight and VetScalpel CO2 lasers.
I was utterly amazed by how well the surgery went. There was very little bleeding and my dog had no bruising, and no appreciable pain, or discomfort following the procedure. Being able to work alongside Chris while he explained how the unit worked, and having him show me how to use the unit, was one of the best experiences I ever had in a surgery suite.
With the Aesculight laser, one can change quickly from a cutting mode to ablating mode. Most of the CO2 lasers are designed primarily for cutting. Ablation with these lasers is very tedious and complicated. In dermatology, most of our procedures require wide-field ablations; cutting is not used as often, so this Aesculight laser is an excellent choice for the skin. Aesculight is the company with its headquarters in the USA. They build the laser entirely in the US, in compliance with and exceeding all the US standards. This laser is of the highest quality and is built to last. It is a laser with engineering that you can rely on, by people who you can trust. This laser is far superior both in quality and safety to all of the foreign-built lasers that are on the market.
I am your biggest advocate of surgical laser technology for animals. If it wasn’t for this miracle capability, my dog Gunnar would have been dead at only six-years-old. But because of laser surgery, Gunnar is almost 14-years-old.
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.
I had a five month old male kitten neutered with laser surgery, and a five month old female kitten spayed using laparoscopic surgery. I highly recommend laser surgery. It was minimally invasive with no stitches for the male. It was a very quick recovery and once we got him home, and he didn’t even need the pain meds we had purchased. He was fine and playing the next day even though he was supposed to rest. Laser surgery is less invasive and caused less trauma to my pet’s tissue.
We were able to locate a laser veterinarian and the surgery went well. Both cats are doing great! I would absolutely recommend laser surgery to other pet owners. It’s much better than traditional scalpel surgery and the healing time is much faster!
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.
