Laser (CO2) Surgery
Lasers have been used on humans for over 30 years and now this same technology can be used here. We are the ONLY veterinary hospital in Klamath Falls that offers this innovative option.
This superior non-scalpel method of cutting the skin and tissues is available on most surgeries for an additional charge. The laser decreases pain by sealing nerve endings, minimizes bleeding, reduces the risk of infections by killing bacteria and since the laser beam of light does not crush or tear tissues, there is less swelling post operatively.
In addition to surgical cutting purposes, it is used on chronic wounds, oral stomatitis cases and is ideal with cancer cases to help kill cancer cells deep in the tissues. Laser surgery is the preferred method for declaw surgeries in cats as it greatly minimizes bleeding and post operative pain.
