Back Mountain Veterinary Hospital is proud to have been among the first hospitals to offer Laser Surgery in Luzerne County. We have been performing laser surgeries for almost 15 years. The CO2 Laser not only makes clean incisions, but also can be used to precisely ablate (vaporize)abnormal tissue, while leaving surrounding tissue completely untouched.
Laser Surgery has many benefits over traditional scapel surgery.
Your pet recovers faster with less pain. When used for cat declaws, there is almost no bleeding so bandages are not necessary and the cat can walk normally the next day with no limping or pain. Laser surgery makes it possible to safely and humanely declaw cats, even if they are older or overweight.(Please Note: Cats can feel almost TOO GOOD after a laser declaw, so it is very important to keep them confined to a small area with no jumping for several days after surgery to give the incision sites time to heal closed.)
