Laser Surgery

Dr. Tice has over 25 years of experience with laser surgery and is a member of the Veterinary Surgical Laser Society.

Which procedures are performed with a laser?

Our clinic uses Laser for a variety of surgical procedures including but not limited to:

  • Spay
  • Neuter
  • Removal of cysts and tumors 
  • Declaw

Why laser surgery?

Since there's minimal - if any - bleeding when most incisions are made, the use of a laser provides a very clean surgical field, as well as:

  • Reduced blood loss to the patient
  • No tourniquets or post-operative bandages and no chance of complications arising from the use of either.
  • Substantially reduced need for pain medication.

A note on declawing

We DO NOT recommend declawing your cat unless there is absolutely no other option, and we will only perform this service in extreme situations. Dr. Tice requires a prearranged medical consult during which she will discuss with you the reasons you are seeking to declaw your cat and alternatives to declawing. Whether or not she will do the procedure is up to her discretion. Your cat's temperament, size, age, etc., will also be taken into consideration when making her decision.

Please contact us with any questions you may have about laser.
