Laser Surgery

Birch-Dan Animal Hospital uses a CO2 laser for all of its veterinary surgical procedures.

Laser surgery is one of the most humane surgical techniques available. Laser surgery minimizes bleeding by cauterizing and sealing small blood vessels, reduces pain by sealing nerve endings as it passes through tissue, limits swelling because there is no physical contact between the laser and surgical area, and reduces the risk of infection. In all, a laser promotes more rapid healing after a surgical procedure as well as reduces the risks of undergoing surgery.

We have utilized a laser for our Scarborough pet surgeries since 2007 and have found that our clients are extremely happy with this type of surgery.
