Laser treatment is a complex technique that’s effective in treating skin ailments, arthritis, soft-tissue surgery, post-surgical pain, mouth and ear infections, and a whole lot more. Therapeutic effects are made by employing specific wavelengths of light to promote rapid recovery and improved circulation with less swelling and pain. The strategy is completely safe, painless, and doesn’t require anesthesia. At Ottawa Veterinary Hospital we believe each and every creature is deserving of a unique, clinical decision. We consider factors such as age, size, breed, and way of life. You will experience much less challenges associated with natural sexual impulse, unwanted pregnancy, and warmth intervals.  To ensure your pet’s safety, we perform an exam and pre- operative blood work to ascertain if your pet can handle anesthesia and operation.

Tumor & Development Removal

Lumps and bumps are common in older animals, but can appear at any age. Motion may be limited depending on the location of this growth. If it continues to rise, elimination gets increasingly harder, particularly in areas such as the throat or limbs. If you discover a lump or bump in your pet that is quickly growing or changing, let us know immediately.
Growths could be benign or cancerous. For your pet’s safety, we always recommend surgical removal to stop the mass from growing or spreading to other regions of the body.

Consumed Objects

It is not unusual for pets to consume everyday objects that aren’t digestible– balls, socks, play toys, hair ties, stones and dirt, sticks, pantyhose, and panties. While some items will pass through the stomach and GI tract fairly readily, others become trapped and might lead to benign and dangerous concerns. The size of your pet and foreign object largely determines the chances for a safe departure.
Contact us immediately in the event that you believe that your pet has swallowed a foreign item. As soon as you arrive in the clinic, we will take x-rays to find the item and determine options for removal. Depending upon your particular situation, vomiting can be triggered. Generally, surgery is required.
