LASER THERAPY & LASER SURGERY
Here at The Country Veterinary Hospital we utilize laser technologies for many of our surgeries.Laser surgery has been shown to reduce post-operative pain and inflammation and speed up recovery times. Post operative laser therapy utilizing the Companion Therapy Laser is used to stimulate cell growth after surgery, which will help to speed healing and minimize inflammation during the aftercare period.
Laser therapy utilizes the body’s own healing powers by stimulating cellular activity. These treatments are commonly used for wound care, arthritic conditions, skin problems, and slipped discs. Be sure to ask if laser treatment might benefit your pet.
If your pet has been diagnosed with cancer, rest assured they are in the hands of skilled surgeons experienced in the removal of many types of tumors.A common cancer treatment for pets is surgical removal with biopsy and surgical margin analysis.

Quality of life is always our first priority. Our goal is to provide a supportive environment for you and your pet during this process. If you have any questions about your pet’s risks, diagnosis, or treatments, make an appointment today.
