CO2 Laser

CO2 Laser

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 further develop her skills. The laser is used for routine surgeries (such as spays and neuters), lump removals, as well as other unique procedures such as oral stomatitis treatment and treatment of abnormal ear canals.

Please feel free to ask us questions about what techniques we could use the laser for that would benefit your animal.
