Cryosurgery

At La Cumbre Animal Hospital, we safely treat benign skin lesions such as warts, small tumors, and small growths without the need for anesthesia. We use a small hand-held instrument called a Cryoprobe. The Cryoprobe freezes the lesions and within 5-21 days, the mass shrinks and falls off. (A second treatment may be needed.) The treatment is safe, fast and effective with little discomfort, which is very important to owners of elderly pets. If you notice skin lesions, bumps, tags on your pet, please call La Cumbre Animal Hospital. We will be happy to make an appointment for your pet!
