Laser Surgery

Fourth Line Animal Hospital is equipped with laser surgery services. These surgeries are performed with a laser beam rather than a scalpel. The high energy beam vaporizes water in the body tissues creating a precise cut that seals off blood vessels and nerve endings. Benefits in this procedure are less bleeding and pain, reduced swelling at the site and a faster recovery. Laser surgery is used in some procedures like feline declaw, mass removal, dental procedures and others if the veterinarian believes laser surgery is a possible option.
