!Surrey (I-Newswire) August 15, 2013 - Laser surgery reduces the amount of blood loss, pain and discomfort for your pet. Laser surgery is a wonderful development. The laser seals off the nerve endings and kills germs. With a scalpel, the wound bleeds, swells up and causes pain to animals.
One of the newer developments in the world of veterinary medicine is laser surgery. The 21st century is going to see the use of this new procedure become more common, probably dramatically so in the next five to ten years.
Many different types of lasers have had applications in both human and veterinary medicine, with CO2 (carbon dioxide) the most practical for treating dogs and cats. Simply stated, the energy created by the carbon dioxide laser is absorbed by the water of the tissues we are using it on (remember, our bodies are made up of nearly two-thirds water). It vaporizes this water, allowing us to remove the tissue that the laser has struck. The great thing is that, because the laser has virtually no effect on the surrounding tissues, we can easily pinpoint the area on which we wish to operate.
Here is a short list of the types of procedures that may be familiar to you as a pet owner:
- Spays and neuters
- Declaws. This is one of the most frequent uses of the laser. The pain reduction is remarkable.
- Ear surgeries, especially for those dogs with chronic ear infections that require reconstructive-type surgeries.
- Eye and eyelid surgeries
- Oral surgery
- Lick granulomas
- Lump or tumor removals
Currently, there are only about 400 veterinarians (out of approximately 45,000 small animal practitioners) using lasers on a regular basis. That's less than 1%. But that number will grow exponentially over the next few years, and we wanted to be sure you heard about it here first.
