Lasers are being used frequently in veterinary medicine. The Canine Center has 2 lasers, one for surgery and one for therapy. Information about use of each type of laser follows. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
Many soft tissue surgeries performed at the Canine Center utilize a surgical laser. The advantage of the surgical laser is decreased pain, swelling, and bruising. It also allows us to perform surgeries we could not do before such as correcting elongated soft palates and eyelid tumor removal.
