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.
If you have questions or would like more information on laser surgery, please give us a call at 506.622.2355
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 4, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call 506.622.2355. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
