DCA's Laser Surgery Service

The latest in Laser technology for the removal and treatment of your pet's various conditions

The carbon dioxide (CO2) laser emits a beam of light that is absorbed by water.  Because skin tissues and their cells are composed of water, the CO2 laser beam is absorbed very precisely allowing the surgeon to remove only the desired (diseased) tissue.  The laser vaporizes tissue and microorganisms, which also helps sterilize the field.  The CO2 laser also seals small blood vessels and nerve endings which leads to less bleeding and less post-operative pain when compared to traditional scalpel surgery.


Dermatology Center for Animals is equipped with the leading veterinary CO2 laser, typically found only at veterinary universities or large specialty referral hospitals.  It can be used for the removal or treatment of the following conditions:

  • Viral warts (papillomas)
  • Various skin tumors
  • Ear tumors
  • Interdigital cysts
