The Cat Doctor uses a surgical laser to perform many procedures in cats, such as removal of skin masses, superficial ear polyps, and surgeries involving delicate areas such as the nose. Laser surgery allows for faster surgery with less tissue trauma, swelling and post-operative pain.

Most procedures are routinely performed with a scalpel at The Cat Doctor. If you want the carbon dioxide laser used during your cat’s procedure to reduce perioperative pain and swelling, please notify the staff at the time the treatment plan is presented prior to surgery.
