For many procedures, we utilize the LUXAR ACCUVET surgical laser, which allows us to make our patients more comfortable and pain free following their procedure. The laser procedures result in less bleeding, less cancer spread in cases of tumor removal , less pain and, and rapid healing compared to standard surgical techniques. Certain procedures such as declawing in cats, is performed exclusively with the laser at LOAH, resulting in superior recovery and an absolute minimum of post operative pain for the patient . Most feline patients can go home sooner with no swelling, no bandages, no stitches, and with the ability to walk normally within a few hours.
Many other previously painful surgical procedures can now be performed with equal comfort and lack of side effects.
