We understand the stress that might accompany a pet’s surgery. By addressing underlying health concerns and providing effective surgical interventions, we pave the way for a long, healthy life. Thanks to our Pet CO2 Laser’s reduced pain, edema, and bleeding, your pet will recuperate more quickly and with less stress.

Thompson’s Veterinary Center’s Surgical Services
with CO2 Laser Technology

Our hospital offers most soft tissue surgeries. Dr. Thompson requires a client-patient relationship to be established before surgery. All surgery patients should have an exam within the last three months before surgery.

We keep most surgeries overnight, so all vaccines are required before the procedure.

We use pain management post-operatively and have the option for laser therapy to help the incisions heal.

Some common procedures we do are listed below:

• Feline and Canine Spay
• Feline and Canine Neuter
• Lump Removal
• Cystotomy
• Laceration Repair

Here at Thompson’s Veterinary Center, the majority of our soft tissue surgeries are done utilizing the CO2 laser. This laser cuts and cauterizes at the same time; it also deadens the nerve endings so there is less pain, less bleeding, and therefore less discomfort.

Dr. Thompson started using the laser in 1998. She has taken several continuing education courses to develop her skills further. The laser is used for routine surgeries (such as spays and neuters), lump removals, and other unique procedures such as oral stomatitis treatment and treatment of abnormal ear canals.
