We are getting our Golden spayed next week and when I called to make the appointment at the Vet's office, they told me to let them know on the day of whether we want her spayed traditionally or by laser. I asked what the difference was (other than $100 ) and the receptionist just stated that (obviously) a laser is used and supposedly the recovery is less painful for the pup. Obviously I want this to be the least painful as possible for Darby and the money isn't an issue...just wondering if anyone has had experience with the whole laser concept? Recovery time, How your pup did, etc? I haven't had a female dog in years....we've only been dealing with males and the ol' snip-snip
I had Pippa's spay surgery done with laser. I was told and also did some research and found that there is less bleeding during the surgery because the laser cauterizes as it cuts, seals nerve endings as it cuts so there is less pain and it also disinfects as it cuts so there is less chance of infection. The healing time is a lot faster than traditional surgery. Pippa recovered quickly and doesn't even have a scar and there is no subcutaneous scar that I can feel either.
