Laser Spaying/Neutering

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am considering the laser spaying/neutering for my female and male cat. Has anyone had this surgery yet, if so can I please have your comments on it. Also, do you think regular spaying/neutering would be better?

I don't know anything about laser spaying/neutering....but I would certainly ask your vet about the advantages/disadvantages of this procedure over a regular spay/neuter.

I don't know a whole lot about laser surgury. However what I do know is that the procedure is quicker than the ol' scapel and knife remedy, with a quicker recovery time because of less blood loss during the procedure.

It's also a bit more expensive. I just Googled it and it's about an average of $200 more than the regular. How much safer than regular surgury? I don't know.

(PS, check with your local vet before you take my word as advice though!)

I checked my vets here and I know for normal spay its like around 90-100. laser is 120+... So i think its more personal preference then anything.

My vet also offers this and I'm also curious about it... It does say a faster recovery time but a bit more costly. I think they charge $225 or so for a cat.

When Shay was spayed, they did laser surgery. It was an additional $35 ($72 for regular spay). Her recovery time was very short and her incision was really tiny.

It all depends on the area you live in. I paid $150 for Luna's spay...that was the non-laser surgery. I think in the end she came out costing me a total of $350 as part of her checkup (she had milk worms then).

Hannah had a laser spay when she was spayed in January. She also had dissolvable stitches so we didn't have to go back to the vet. If your vet offers the service and if your pet is up to it, then I'd go for it.
