Find out what veterinarians are saying about Aesculight and VetScalpel CO2 lasers.
Laser surgery is one of the newest surgical innovations available to veterinary medicine. It uses surgical CO2 laser light to cut and cauterize tissue instead of a scalpel blade. It literally vaporizes cells to separate the tissue planes for incisions or to vaporize to remove unwanted cells. While common in human medicine for plastic surgery and other medical procedures for many years, it is now available economically enough for veterinary medicine to benefit...
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.
Our puppy did come home that afternoon, we limited his activity a bit and by the next day he was pretty normal really. Still wanted his belly rubbed, no crying at all. We watched the area, took him back for his follow up appointment. That was almost 2 months ago. He now is a happy, growing 8- month-old Chow Chow. We are very happy with the whole laser surgery procedure and our puppy. Thank you so much for your assistance.
We found a laser veterinarian who was very professional and easy. Now we are more likely to let the animals into the family room and other areas of the house that were off limits to them prior to the procedure. Would we recommend laser surgery to other pet owners? Yes, very much so. The problem is that many vets charge extremely high fees which is hard to afford but we paid under $300 for each pet, which was reasonable and we had an excellent outcome.
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!
I am very happy with the results of my pet’s laser surgery! My eight year old cat’s recovery time was minimal (5-7 days) and he did not appear to have much discomfort at all. Laser surgery was actually less expensive and less painful than other alternatives. I would recommend it to other pet owners!
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.
