Pet Surgery in Whittlesea, Victoria
One of the biggest concerns for pet owners when their companions are undergoing surgery is how safe and painless the procedure will be. Our doctors and staff in Whittlesea are just as concerned as you are about your pet’s well-being, which is why we apply Gold Standard protocols to every surgery we perform, whether it involves a simple growth removal or a more invasive and involved exploratory procedure. In addition, we are one of the few hospitals in the country offering CO2 laser surgery, a more advanced and humane form of surgery that lessens discomfort in our patients and accelerates recovery.
How We Perform Cat and Dog Teeth Cleaning Procedures
What is the Gold Standard? It requires that certain steps be taken to ensure the highest level of safety and comfort for each patient, and enables our team to also ensure that your pet’s recovery goes smoothly.
These steps include:
- Performing pre-anesthesia patient examinations and blood tests to assess health
- Dedicated staff and equipment monitoring throughout the surgery
- Providing fluid therapy during the surgery to support blood pressure and hydration
- Administering the appropriate pain management to your pet before and after their surgery
Why Laser Surgery is Better for Your Pet
Our surgical CO2 laser allows us to perform various soft tissue surgeries with great precision. Unlike a regular scalpel, the laser can vapourise tissue just a few cells at a time without crushing or bruising surrounding tissues. We can perform very delicate procedures using the CO2 laser and operate on areas that would otherwise be challenging or even impossible to access.
Additionally, during surgery, the laser seals nerve endings and cauterizes blood vessels to decrease pain and bleeding. It also kills bacteria in its path, which reduces your pet’s risk of infection.
Some notable benefits of laser surgery include:
- Less pain for your pet
- Decreased post-surgical swelling and pain
- Less risk of infection
- A speedier recovery
