Veterinary Laser Surgery & Therapy Offer Incredibly Beneficial Alternatives
Veterinary Laser Surgery
Your pet's best interest is always at the forefront of our business; we at Haines Road Animal Hospital strive to provide both you and our patients with only the best in progressive veterinary methods and techniques. The surgical laser (a laser beam used to cut tissue) offers a much less invasive, advanced alternative to the harsher, traditional scalpel. Often used in cases such as animal biopsies, pet tumor removals, spay and neuter procedures, and more, there are numerous advantages in electing veterinary laser surgery for your pet.

Pet Laser Therapy
As with laser surgery, animal laser therapy (also known as cold laser therapy) offers many similar benefits to your pet. Veterinary laser therapy is a noninvasive treatment that uses a low beam laser to assist in healing, pain management, and inflammatory issues. Arthritis, hip dysplasia, skin problems, ear infections, wounds and burns, gingivitis, lacerations and abrasions, among other pet complications, are a few of the responsive conditions that veterinary laser therapy may treat. If you feel your pet may benefit from laser therapy, schedule an appointment to discuss your options with one of our veterinarians.
