Cryosurgery for Pets

A safer, inexpensive way to remove small growths.

Veterinary cryosurgery for safe removal of growths at Healing Springs Animal Hospital in Galax, VA - Southwest Virginia

It’s safer and inexpensive. Some surgeries that others refer to specialty hospitals can now be performed as outpatient procedures at Healing Springs. Cryosurgery proves ideal for removal of growths such as warts, cysts, benign tumors, etc. - especially in sensitive areas such as the eyelid, mouth, and perianal region. With this veterinary procedure, our surgical equipment can spray a fine jet of cryogen with a freezing power at -127° F. Pinpoint accuracy to the millimeter helps avoid collateral tissue damage.

If your pet has a problematic growth, schedule an exam at Healing Springs Animal Hospital. If the growth needs to be removed and cryosurgery is an option, we can often perform the procedure and send your pet home the same day. Call (276) 236-5103.

Lap Spays

Electrosurgery for Pets

Less blood loss. Faster procedures. Faster recoveries. A mark of quality. High-current energy causes the tissues in the target area to excite and fuse, instantly forming a natural, permanent seal. Our electrosurgery tool can seal blood vessels in two to four seconds, and the seals hold better than sutured vessels. In many procedures, Healing Springs uses electrosurgery to improve your pet's quality of care at no extra charge.
