Laser Surgery for Pets

veterinary surgery

As one of the only in-house providers of veterinary laser surgery in Arkansas, Shackleford Road Veterinary Clinic is proud to serve the needs of Little Rock pets in a state-of-the-art facility that is close to home. Our CO2 laser that produces a powerful and concentrated beam of light provides numerous advantages for pet surgery.

The surgical CO2 laser that we use during laser surgery for dogs creates a beam that is more powerful than a similarly-sized beam leaving the surface of the sun. This laser beam delivers a highly-focused tools that is able to cut in a clean and precise manner. This results in little to no thermal effect on the tissues beyond the target area. Using a CO2 laser ensures safe and predictable outcomes during pet surgery.

Laser Pet Surgery vs. Traditional Surgery

Traditional surgery that uses a scalpel or scissors can bruise or crush delicate tissue, leading to excessive bleeding and an extended recovery time. Using our CO2 laser, Dr. Barron and Dr. Charney ensure that only an intense beam of laser light touches your pet. This results in a reduction of the pain, swelling and bleeding often is associated with laser surgery for dogs as well as other types of surgery.
