What types of surgeries are performed at your hospital?
Our hospital offers a wide range of surgical procedures. We very commonly perform spay and neuter surgeries for dogs and cats. We also perform dental surgery and soft tissue surgeries such as tumour removal, wound reconstruction, splenectomies, bladder stone removal, and biopsies.
Is surgery safe?
While there can be risks to surgery it is very beneficial to keep your feline or canine friend healthy. Our team follows strict pre-anesthetic rules and protocols during the procedure. We use modern equipment to monitor the patient and keep them comfortable during the procedure.
We specialize in laser surgery, which is at the cutting edge of modern veterinary medicine. Laser surgery has many benefits in comparison to stainless steel surgical scalpels. The surgical laser used in veterinary medicine is CO2 laser. The beams emitted by the laser are absorbed by water found in soft tissues and the skin vaporizing the cells and cutting the tissues. The surgeon has control over how much laser beams are absorbed. We use this type of surgery for spays and neuters, eyelid surgery and throat and mouth procedures. Here are the benefits of laser surgery:
- Reduces postoperative pain - the laser seals nerve endings as it cuts, which lessens pain impulses at the surgery site.
- Extreme surgical precision
- Reduced bleeding and blood loss
- Reduced inflammation
- Decreased risk of surgical infection
