Mountain Road Animal Hospital strives to provide top quality medicine to all of our patients. One way in which we provide this care is by using a carbon dioxide laser for the majority of our surgery patients. The laser produces an invisible beam of light that can very precisely cut through one layer of tissue at a time. This laser is used instead of the traditional scalpel blade and has many benefits for your pet, including:
Less Pain: The laser seals the nerve endings as it cuts, so your pet will have less discomfort both during and after their surgery.
Less Bleeding: The laser also seals small blood vessels while cutting, which greatly decreases the amount of blood lost during surgery.
Less Swelling: The laser cuts without any physical contact and therefore decreases the incidence of crushing, tearing or bruising of the tissues, leading to less swelling post-operatively.
Less Infection: The energy from the laser acts an antimicrobial/antibacterial agent with its high temperature, effectively eliminating microorganisms to decrease the risk of infection. With all of these added benefits, your pet can recover more quickly and get back to their normal self!
If you have any questions or would like more information on laser surgery, please feel free to contact us at the hospital (506) 382-0061
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 4, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call 506.382.0061. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
