At Cara Vet Group, we have started using cryotherapy with some great results.

If your dog/cat is suffering from cancerous tumors or irritating skin growths, he/she may be a great candidate for Cryosurgery, an effective, relatively painless procedure that serves as a great alternative to treatments that may require long recovery periods and pose serious health risks.

Cryosurgery, or Cryotherapy, is a minimally-invasive technique used to treat abnormal or diseased tissues such as skin tags, warts, infected or itchy lesions, cysts, and cancerous tumours on pets.

Growths on the eyelids and skin, in the perianal area (below the anus) and inside the mouth and nose have all been successfully treated with Cryosurgery. Cryosurgery is an extremely effective alternative to treatments such as conventional surgery, radiation, or amputation.

Older dogs, and those who have medical conditions that prohibit surgery, are great candidates for Cryosurgery because the procedure and recovery are simple and quick, and the side effects are minimal.
