Depending on the pet hospital that you have been referred to, or the reason why you have been referred may mean that not all of these services are available or there may be additional services as this does vary from hospital to hospital.

How are referrals processed?

9 times out of 10, your pet will be referred from your local vet to a pet hospital as they will identify that there is a health problem that they are not specialised enough in to solve. The hospital will receive the referral and contact you as the pet’s owner to discuss the next steps.

Other reasons to visit a pet hospital

As well as arranged referral appointments, there are other reasons to visit a pet hospital. This is under emergencies only such as:

  • If your pet has been in a major traumatic event such as a car accident/ ran over.
  • Having difficulty breathing.
  • If your pet is having seizures.
  • Bleeding that cannot be controlled.
  • If your pet has eaten a poisonous or toxic substance.
  • Difficulty passing urine or stool.
  • In severe cases of persistently vomiting or diarrhoea.
  • No or lack of appetite.

Help Guide For Laser Wart Removal

What is Laser Wart Removal?

There are different types of laser removal for warts some being Cureta Nd: YAG and COlaser. COlaser has been used for many years and is a reliable wart removal technique.

Cureta Nd: YAG is capable of removing more than two-thirds of warts caused by HPV. The Nd: YAG laser can be used on areas such as the face, hands and feet and due to its technology reduces the risk of scarring.

What is a Wart?

Our skin has many layers, one being the epidermis layer. A wart is an infectious skin growth within this layer which is due to one of the many human papillomaviruses (HPV). The way we contract a wart is through broken skin. The virus will make its way through the broken skin and trigger the multiplication of cells on the skins. This then causes a wart.

Types Of Warts

Many types of warts can be contracted. These include:

Dome-shaped warts

 Filiform Warts

 Flat warts

 Genital warts

 Mosaic warts

 Periungual warts

 Plantar Warts

Is Laser Wart Removal Painful?

Laser wart removal isn’t extremely painful; however, a slight burning and stinging sensation can be felt during its process. The laser beam will bypass the epidermis and will concentrate on small blood vessels that are the feeding source for the wart.

Who Should Get Laser Removal?

At times it is necessary to have a wart removed by a professional. You should have a wart removed if:

 You have tried several different treatments and none have been successful

 You have had it for a substantial amount of time

 It is causing you a lot of pain
