Cryotherapy is an innovative and minimally invasive treatment option available in veterinary medicine, used primarily for the removal of benign and malignant skin lesions, such as warts, tumors, or cysts. This technique involves the application of extreme cold, often through liquid nitrogen or argon gas, to destroy abnormal or diseased tissue. Cryotherapy offers several benefits, including reduced pain, minimal bleeding, and quicker recovery times compared to traditional surgical methods. At our clinic, we employ cryotherapy as a safe and effective alternative for certain conditions, ensuring a more comfortable experience for your pet while maintaining the highest standards of care.
Commitment to Quality Care
For complex surgeries, we collaborate with board-certified veterinary surgeons specializing in the required fields. This approach allows us to provide advanced surgical options with the latest technology and expertise, ensuring the best outcomes for your pet.
The safety and comfort of your pet are our top priorities. Before any surgical procedure, a thorough physical examination is performed to assess fitness for surgery. We recommend and require pre-anesthetic testing for all our patients, especially those seven years and older. These tests include blood work to assess organ function and tailor an individualized anesthesia protocol.
Intravenous Catheter and Hydration
An intravenous catheter is placed in all surgical patients to administer fluids, keeping your pet hydrated and allowing immediate access to administer medications in emergencies. Maintaining proper hydration and stability is integral to your pet’s recovery and overall health during the surgical process.
Anesthesia and Monitoring
After reviewing your pet’s health status and blood work, the veterinary team carefully sedates and prepares your pet for surgery. Throughout the procedure, they are closely monitored, with vital signs tracked and adjustments made as needed to ensure safety.
Pain Management and Recovery
Understanding that surgery can be a source of stress, we focus on comprehensive pain management to keep your pet comfortable. From pre-operative care to post-operative recovery, appropriate pain medication is provided. Our team is also here to guide you through the recovery process, offering advice and support for a smooth healing period.
