Laser surgery reduces the risk of infection and result in less post-operative
complications. This recent technology minimizes tissue damage and is used in many procedures such as the removal of warts, cysts or small tumours.
The veterinarians at St. Lawrence Valley Animal Hospital no longer offer traditional feline declaw surgery ( Scalpel blades, and the use of tourniquets to minimize bleeding) as this procedure used to cause unecessary pain to our feline friends. St. Lawrence Valley Animal Hospital has decided to do feline declaws by using solely Laser declaw which result in less pain, less bleeding (due to the cauterizing effects of the laser) and less swelling.
