Southgate Animal Clinic’s surgical suite is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, such as the CO2 surgical laser. Unlike steel blade scalpel-based techniques, the CO2 laser removes tissue with a highly focused infrared beam. The laser instantly and safely cuts the soft tissue target area, and at the same time seals capillaries, small blood vessels, lymphatics, and nerve endings. This provides significant benefits for the patient, including less pain, less bleeding and faster recovery.
This technique has revolutionized many soft tissue surgeries, such as feline onchectomy (declaw), stenotic nares (Pugs, Boston Terriers, Bulldogs, Persian cats, etc), entropion repair and much more.
