Laser Surgery

As part of our commitment to quality care, we are pleased to offer laser surgery as a safe and comfortable treatment. We feel that laser surgery provides the best possible care for your pet. Laser surgery involves utilizing a carbon dioxide laser, which produces an invisible beam of light that can remove a precise layer of tissue at one time.

The benefits of laser surgery are:

Less Pain – The laser seals nerve endings as it cuts. Your pet will be more comfortable after surgery as they will experience less pain and discomfort.
Less Bleeding – The laser seals small blood vessels during the surgery, greatly reducing blood loss.
Less Swelling – The laser energy does not crush, tear, or bruise the tissue
because there is no physical contact with the tissue. Therefore the swelling of postoperative incisions is reduced.
Less Infection – The carbon dioxide laser energy acts as an antimicrobial/antibacterial agent by producing high temperatures which effectively eliminate microorganisms. Therefore, reducing the risk of infection.

All of the above help promote rapid healing which allows for a quick return to normal activities for your pet.

Dear Clients,

As a result of New Brunswick's plan to enter Level 2 of COVID-19 restrictions, we will proceed with the following protocol, effective immediately, until restrictions have been lifted.

We will be moving back to a curbside “Closed Waiting Room” policy, which means no clients will be permitted in the building, with exceptions. However, we will continue to offer FULL veterinary services.

If you have been contacted by Public Health or are showing symptoms of the virus, we ask that you call us to reschedule your appointment.

Procedure for surgeries and general appointments:

1. Call us at 622-2355 when you arrive in the parking lot. We will proceed in checking you in remotely.

2. When the Dr is ready to see your pet we will call your cell phone or wave at your vehicle and have you bring your pet to the main door. Please wear a mask when approaching the hospital to pass your pet to us.

3. A veterinarian will perform an examination or requested procedure inside the hospital while you wait in your vehicle, or a drop off appointment can be arranged.

4. Once the care of your animal is complete, the veterinarian will call you with their findings and devise a treatment plan.

5. Payment will be taken over the phone or in the parking lot via a portable debit machine. We are trying to limit cash use to a minimum.

6. Food and medications pick up will be curbside and payment can be accepted via e-transfer or credit card over the phone.

We are OPEN with the following hours:

- Monday and Thursday: 8:00am - 7:00pm
- Tuesday and Wednesday: 8:00am - 5:30pm
- Friday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
- Saturday & Sunday: CLOSED

 

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

- Your dedicated team at Waterview Animal Hospital
