Find out what veterinarians are saying about Aesculight and VetScalpel CO2 lasers.
We really enjoy having the laser. It is a lot of fun. We use it all the time.
We perform every surgery procedure with the laser. This week I had 3 cases of BOAS syndrome and 2 of TPLO. I think the Aesculight laser is the best equipment we have bought so far.
In February 2008, my twelve-year-old Lhasa Apso was diagnosed with an upper gum area cancer. I came to Jim Antunano, DVM, in April for a second opinion and to discuss treatment options other than chemotherapy. We agreed to surgically remove the infected area using laser surgery technology. Our dog lost a few teeth, some gum area and a small part of her palate. However, she recovered remarkably well with minimal swelling and no bleeding, and has been doing fine for six months.
Our pug is about 12 years old with breathing issues and our regular vet didn’t want to anesthetize him for a dental cleaning. He told us he should have surgery to remove part of the soft palate which was probably elongated and was causing the breathing issues. Our regular vet does not offer laser surgery and all the research I did on that type of surgery indicated laser would be the best as there would be little to no bleeding. The procedure with no laser causes severe bleeding and is much more dangerous. I contacted Aesculight and they were able to provide a list of vets who used laser for that type of surgery. We found a vet who would perform the surgery with laser who was three hours away but we traveled to see him and he performed the soft palate surgery on our pug, and also performed the dental cleaning. Recovery was quick for our little pug and he is doing great. Laser surgery was the best and only option for us.
I would definitely recommend laser surgery to other pet owners. Please opt for laser surgery, it offers much less bleeding and is less dangerous for your pet. Less painful as well, which is always a concern.
Thank you very much for taking such great care of Owen. Prior to surgery, Owen acted like a old cat. He was slow and his coat was greasy with dander. He really did not preen himself nor did he want much to do with the other cats in the household.
What a change since the surgery! He now preens himself, the other cats, the dogs and me. He now seems almost kitten-like in his renewed interest in playing with toys, the other animals and his pet humans. He has also become quite the snuggler.
I am very glad that I made the decision to have the surgery done. Owen has had absolutely no problem recovering from it.
My cat went home 7 hours after her laser spay surgery. She was alert, ate and very active. Even jumping the same night – I was amazed and totally recommend laser surgery to other pet owners.
With over 4,000 surgical laser installations at veterinary clinics across North America, there are millions of veterinary laser surgeries performed each year. There are tens of millions of companion pets in the USA and Canada who thus far have benefited from the miracles of veterinary laser surgery. These pages are devoted to some of the testimonials that we have received from many happy pet owners about their pets’ laser surgeries.
Nice to have a faster and better healing process available!
Had laser surgery at Chambers Creek Veterinary... very happy, excellent results and highly recommend laser surgery.
The best, most ethical, most painless surgery any of our pets have had.
Yes, it is safe, reliable, and more comfortable for your pet that you love so much. You feel more secure with the operation if it's laser surgery.
Recovery was rapid ... absolutely no problems. Pet is doing great.
Very pleased with the results. Seems to be a great alternative to routine surgery that is far less invasive that by the conventional route with much less pain for the pet!
I had surgery for my pet performed at South Seminole Animal Hospital and the surgery went great! I would definitely recommend laser surgery to other pet owners.
I took my pet to Northwest Veterinary Hospital and the procedure was much better than the old method. I would recommend laser surgery.
We were very pleased with the procedure and would absolutely recommend laser surgery to other pet owners.
I took my pet to Boston Road Animal Clinic. It was my first experience with the laser procedure and was pleased with the results. Less trauma to the tissue, quick healing and it didn't seem to be so painful for my pet afterwards. I recommended the laser surgery to a friend and they have already had a similar procedure done!
With reference to Boco's recent surgery using the surgical laser. We were extremely happy with the fact that there was less bleeding and swelling! Boco didn't appear to have much post-surgical pain and her recovery was very quick. We would highly recommend this laser treatment to any pet owner that may be considering surgery. The love and care shown to Boco by our Veterinarian and staff is always appreciated.
Laser surgery worked great!
My veterinarian, Dr. Terri Perkins-Lewis, Flushing Veterinary Hospital, Flushing New York, is wonderful and deserves commendation! My pet had laser surgery and it helped her stomatitis tremendously. I would absolutely recommend laser surgery if necessary.
I liked that there was very little swelling, no bleeding, no stitches and the recovery was much easier on him.
We took our pet to Eau Claire Animal Hospital in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. I was glad to hear that the healing time would be faster and less painful. I believe that was so. She was spayed and is healed very nicely.
The glued sutures were very clean, with no subsequent infection. My animal went home after surgery with pain medication that lasted three days, and she was able to walk comfortably while taking the medication; however, she slept a lot. By the fourth day she was doing well without the medication with limited supervised movement. I feel that the healing process was faster using laser surgery.
The laser surgical procedure received by my pet saved her life. Thank you so much for your information and help. Yes, I would recommend laser surgery to other pet owners.
My dog healed rapidly and with less medication. It looks like she never had a surgery. It's fantastic.
