Laser Surgery at our Animal Hospital in Overland Park
Here at Nall Hills Animal Hospital in Overland Park, we offer CO2 laser surgery for dogs and cats. Lasers can be used for a variety of surgeries, including spays and neuters, removing skin lesions and masses and performing internal surgeries to remove foreign objects as well as for orthopedic surgeries. Lasers can even be used to perform declaw surgeries on cats.
Benefits of CO2 Lasers at our Overland Park Animal Hospital
CO2 lasers are now considered the standard of care in veterinary medicine. The laser scalpel is about the size of a pen and cuts through soft tissues with less bleeding and less pain. This is because the concentrated laser light seals blood vessels and nerve endings as it cuts. This makes laser surgery for cats and dogs at our Overland Park animal hospital less traumatic.
-Faster recovery times
-Less blood loss during surgery
-Less pain after surgery
-Lower infection risk than with traditional scalpel surgeries
Types of Dog Laser Surgery with our Veterinarian
Our veterinarian performs many different types of dog laser surgery, including spays and neuters, foreign object and mass removals and dewclaw removals. We can also remove suspicious skin lesions and performs orthopedic surgeries.
Types of Cat Laser Surgery with our Vet
Cat laser surgery is becoming more popular, especially when it comes to declaw procedures. The laser can precisely cut, cauterize and sterilize, which means there is less blood loss and a reduced risk of infection. Cats also heal faster from the procedure. Our vet also performs spay and neuter surgeries, skin lesion and mass removals and ear surgeries on cats.
