Find out what veterinarians are saying about Aesculight and VetScalpel CO2 lasers.
I love it. It is probably the best thing I have done for my clinic.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers are used in oral surgery for precisely cutting or vaporizing soft tissue with hemostasis... tissue vaporization is more efficient with the CO2 laser than with other lasers... because of the direct absorption of this wavelength by water.
I contacted, thanks to you, Caroline Earle White Veterinary Hospital in Bensalem,PA. The Spaying of my 4 year old Golden- doodle was quick, and the recovery wonderful and pain free, as far as we could tell. She really did not need the cone after only a few days, because she was not bothered by the incision.
Would you recommend laser surgery to other pet owners? Why or why not?
ABSOLUTELY–because of the reasons above. I wanted as easy a procedure as possible.
Thank you for your directive!
My dog had surgery for stenotic nares and elongated soft palate. Surgery was fast and my dog had a relatively quick recovery. I would recommend laser surgery because it requires far less post-op care than traditional surgeries and with less time spent under anesthesia, I felt there were fewer risks of complications. I also didn’t have to worry about sutures or wound management at all. The veterinarian who performed the surgery was knowledgeable and very compassionate, she explained the procedure and contacted me as soon as it was over to let me know how my puppy was doing.
I am very happy that I elected to have the laser surgery performed on my 17 year old cat who suffers from chronic renal failure. The type of surgery he needed did not lend itself to conventional surgical methods. The choice was really one of euthanasia or laser surgery. The DVM who performed the surgery did an excellent job in preparing my old guy for the anesthesia, taking care to perform preliminary testing and supporting him throughout the surgery and recovery on IV fluids. Jim Sox is so much happier and healthier now. I feel as though I have given him several months, maybe a year or two, of quality life that he wouldn’t have had otherwise. He’s my little buddy!!!
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.
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.
