Laser Surgery
Elk Park Animal Hospital is proud that most surgical procedures offered by the hospital are performed using a carbon dioxide surgical laser. The laser cuts cleanly through soft tissues effectively sealing capillaries, lymphatics and nerve endings and as such reduces post-operative pain, swelling and bleeding dramatically when compared to incisions created using scalpel or scissor. Essentially all soft tissue surgery is performed here using the laser, including neuters and spays for cats and dogs, tumor removal and shortening of extremely long toe nails.
