The Surgical Laser is an advanced surgical tool that greatly reduces the swelling associated with traditional surgery. The laser is a beam of high intensity light that vaporizes and cuts tissue; Using a laser for the surgery drastically reduces pain and discomfort, making laser surgery a favorable method for many veterinary surgical procedures. The decrease in pain and bleeding reduces the chances for post-operative infections and discomfort, meaning your pet can return home and have a faster recovery.
How Does It Work?
Laser surgery can be used to make a unique bloodless incision, as well as to remove unhealthy tissue such as tumors, without excessive loss of blood typical of conventional scalpel based surgery.
The laser produces a powerful beam of light that seals small blood vessels and nerve endings as it cuts so your pet is more comfortable after surgery. Additionally, the laser beam kills any bacteria in its path, reducing the chances of swelling and infection.
We carefully examine all of our patients before the operation to make sure they are healthy enough for anesthesia. We recommend pre-surgical blood work to determine if it is safe to administer anesthesia. Our veterinarians also use the test results to screen for any pre-existing conditions that may have an impact on the surgery and to develop a pain management plan tailored to your pet.

I really feel like everytime I bring my pets in everyone makes me feel like my babies are their babies makes me feel super comfortable with the care that is provided. Not just another appointment you need to see.
I love how friendly everyone is, the moment you walk in the door you feel welcome. The care you have given my pets is exceptional, having alternative therapies and ways of treating animals is very important to me. Let's not leave out your outstanding communication with making follow up phone calls to see how my pet is doing and of course the compassion you show after the loss of a pet, the little extras you do mean a lot.
Bluff's pet clinic has always been great, honest, and genuinely caring. We moved away a few years ago and switched to a different vet. Well, it was then really realized how great Buffs is. There was no comparison. Bluffs is far superior. We have returned to Bluffs's and it's worth the drive!
I was so happy with the care Max got at The Bluffs. Your team is fantastic! Steve was fabulous and took a liking to Max right away, a true animal lover! They did not rush us and gave us many suggestions about him not taking to a litter pan (Good luck for us with that) He is getting neutered on November 28th. Looking forward to our next visit. Thank you so much!
I love how everyone interacts with my pet. They were so considerate of my feelings as well. Our previous vet clinic did not really interact with my dog. They just treated her like a piece of equipment that needed to be fixed. It was so impersonal. For this reason, we go to the Bluffs Clinic, where we feel understood and cared for.
