Benefits of Veterinary Laser Surgery
A Less Painful Alternative for Your Pet or Patient
Veterinary laser surgery is recognized in human and veterinary medicine for the significant benefits it provides to both patients and surgeons. While several types of lasers are used for different applications, the primary device for soft tissue surgery in small and mixed animal practices is a carbon dioxide laser. The benefits of the carbon dioxide laser are many:
Reduced Pain – The CO2 laser beam seals nerve endings as it cuts through tissue. This reduces the amount of pain the patient feels during and after surgery.
Reduced Bleeding – The CO2 laser beam cauterizes and seals small blood vessels as it cuts. This laser energy achieves hemostasis and provides the surgeon with a bloodless surgical field in most procedures.
Reduced Swelling – There is no physical contact between the laser and the surgical region, eliminating the tearing and bruising of tissue associated with traditional surgical methods. Lymphatic vessels are also sealed.
Reduced Infection – Laser energy acts as an antibacterial agent by producing high temperatures, effectively eliminating microorganisms.
Quicker Recovery – As a result of all of the above, laser surgery provides the benefit your clients will appreciate the most: a quicker recovery for their pet.

- 15-Watt C02 Surgical Laser – The Cutting Edge 15-Watt CO2 Veterinary Laser System represents a revolution in veterinary surgery. Laser energy seals nerve endings and small blood vessels as it incises or ablates tissue, reducing bleeding, swelling and post-operative pain. The 15-Watt system is designed to provide the veterinary surgeon with maximum flexibility and precision, resulting in better surgery, healthier patients, and satisfied clients.
- The 15-Watt CO2 Laser System features articulated arm technology, delivering true laser beam efficiency to the surgical site while minimizing damage to surrounding tissues. A diode-aiming beam illuminates the targeted incision or ablation site before and during operation, increasing user accuracy and confidence.
- Liquid cooled operation and self-calibration features reduce set up and maintenance time, and completely autoclavable handpieces eliminate the need for costly consumable tips.
- The 15-Watt CO2 Laser System delivers laser energy in Continuous Wave and Super Pulse modes, both included as standard features. The system is configured to include all the necessary tools for nearly all soft tissue surgery applications.
