Laser Surgery: Westmoreland and Slappey Animal Hospital is pleased to offer laser as a surgical option. Laser surgery has been used in the medical profession for over 20 years and has been proven to be a safe and reliable alternative to traditional surgery using a scalpel blade.
Laser surgery has many benefits for your pet. With the laser, small blood vessels are sterilized and sealed as they are cut so there is less bleeding and reduced infection. There is less tissue trauma and less bruising post-operatively. In addition to reduced bleeding, the laser cauterizes nerve endings reducing the pain associated with the surgical site.
