Cutting-Edge Veterinary Surgery for Pets
Expect the highest quality veterinary surgery at Harmony Animal Hospital. We use cutting-edge technology and advanced equipment in our surgery suite. All surgical procedures are performed by a skilled and experienced team, with the care and respect your pets deserve.
Cutting-Edge Laser Surgery
Harmony Animal Hospital offers laser surgery, an exciting option for a safer, more comfortable surgical experience. In most procedures, the laser can replace the scalpel and provide a better alternative to traditional surgery.
The CO2 surgical laser produces an invisible beam of light that vaporizes the water in skin and other soft tissue. Only a thin layer of tissue is removed in this process, leaving surrounding areas unaffected. This technology offers a variety of benefits:
- Comfort — Because the laser seals nerve endings as it cuts, minimizing pain
- Less bleeding — Because the laser seals small blood vessels during surgery
- Less swelling — Because laser energy does not damage surrounding tissue
- Fewer complications — Because patients spend less time under anesthesia
- Reduced risk of infection — Because the laser removes diseased tissue, seals the skin, and reduces the presence of bacteria
The laser clearly offers more precision in surgery, removing unhealthy tissue while minimizing adverse effects to healthy surrounding tissue. Patients experience a more rapid healing process and return to normal activities.
Uses for Laser Surgery
Laser surgery is commonly used in soft tissue surgical procedures including spays, neuters, cat declaws, dental procedures, mass removals, and other dermatological procedures. It is ideal for a wide variety of surgical procedures for dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, exotic, and pocket pets.
Safety in Surgery & Anesthesia
Trust our veterinarians and surgical team to take every precaution, minimizing risk during your pet’s anesthesia. We only perform surgery after a risk assessment has been completed.
Depending upon physical condition and age of the patient, we may recommend specific procedures for your pet including:
- Pre-surgical physical examination
- Preoperative blood and urine tests
- Blood clotting test
- Radiographic examination
These tests may help detect clinical and sub-clinical problems in your pet. We take every precaution to minimize risk during anesthesia and surgery, only proceeding when the benefits outweigh the risks.
Post-Surgery Therapy Program
Studies have shown that therapy improves the comfort level of pets after surgery, and increases the speed of recovery. Learn more about our post-surgical therapy program.
Pain Management & Comfort of Your Pet
Your pet’s safety and comfort during surgery are very important to us. Our pain management guidelines are designed to keep your pet comfortable and free of stress before, during, and after surgical procedures. Managing pet pain at a very low or undetectable level can speed healing and enhance recovery.
