Dentistry
Imagine the health of your mouth if you never brushed your teeth. Pets can develop extremely painful conditions, in their mouths which can lead to infections in the heart, kidneys and liver.
Surgery
Dr Anderson is a general surgeon offering full surgical services to include spays, neuters, declaws, dental cleanings, and soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, with availability of surgical laser for many applications to reduce post-op pain and inflammation.  As well, orthopedic TPLO and external fixation of cruciate tears can be handled in the clinic (Treatment plans and fees can be discussed prior to any procedure.)
Rehabilitation
Because pain is difficult to recognize in pets, pain control for geriatric arthritis, post-operative soft tissue, and orthopedic is important.
Laser Declaws

The Benefits of Laser Declawing Procedures

Laser declawing is growing in popularity. It’s important to know that the laser equipment is pricey. Most vets have to pay upwards of $40,000 for the laser machine, so the cost of the cat declawing is going to be higher. The surgery is safer however, so the added cost is often worthwhile.

During a laser surgery, a laser is used to sever the tendons and ligaments before removing the entire bone. There is no risk of the nail regrowing in the future.

Benefits to laser surgery for declawing a cat are numerous. First, the laser cauterizes the incision during each “cut” so there is no bleeding and no need for bandages after the surgery is complete. Swelling is minimal with a laser surgery.

Because the wound is cauterized, you don’t need to force your cat to acclimate to a different kitty litter during recovery. You won’t have to worry about finding puddles of cat urine on your floors.

Studies find that cats that have been declawed using lasers recover more quickly and seem to experience less pain. This is because the laser also seals the nerve endings during the procedure.

With Resco clipper and disarticulation methods, cats often require a week to heal and get back to their normal routines. Cats that have been declawed using a laser are usually up and about the very next day.
