We recommend postoperative therapeutic laser treatments for pets having orthopedic procedures. The therapeutic laser is an application of light energy at the area of surgery to stimulate healing and reduce inflammation and discomfort.
We recommend a postoperative laser package that includes 6 postoperative treatments that will be performed every other day.
If applicable, your pet will go home wearing a post surgical collar (e-collar)to deter him/her from licking or biting at the suture or incision area. The cost of this collar has been factored into your pet’s treatment plan. We have an upgrade option of a Comfy Cone, which are softer and easier to adjust. (Price difference is an additional $10-$30 depending on size of collar)
Depending on the location of the incision, we also offer After Surgery Wear as an alternative to an e-collar. (Price difference is an additional $10-$20 depending on the size)
Estimates for oral surgery and periodontal treatments are given based on the preliminary oral exam on the awake patient. However we cannot give an accurate estimate for these procedures until we have cleaned the teeth, taken radiographs, and done an in depth exam of the oral cavity under anesthesia.
If oral surgery or periodontal treatments are required, we will call you while your pet is under anesthesia to discuss the treatment options, and give you an updated estimate. We will not perform any procedures without consent, therefore if we cannot reach you or another authorized person by phone we will have to wake your pet up from anesthesia, and the procedures will be performed at another time.
