Cyrotherapy is the use of ultra-cold pressure to treat a variety of conditions, primarily skin lesions. A small hand-held device is used to emit a very precise application of nitrous oxide. It can precisely treat the affected area without damaging surrounding healthy tissue. It is an excellent, quick, non-invasive procedure. Your pet may feel a slight tingling or discomfort at the site but this passes quickly. Typically there is no lengthy recovery time and your pet can return to normal activity.
Cyrotherapy can be used to treat a variety of conditions such as:
- Papillomas (warts)
- Abnormal eyelash growth
- Benign oral growths
- Benign eyelid growths
Depending on the size and nature of the problem, 1-2 treatments are typically needed. More involved or larger areas may require multiple treatments.
