What is Cryotherapy?

Many pet owners worry about the various warts, skin tags or other masses on their pets. Now, thanks to technology, veterinarians are able to quickly, effectively and economically remove these skin growths with the help of cryotherapy.

Cryotherapy involves using an extremely low-temperature gas to freeze skin masses, killing them without the need for anesthetic. This is a well-proven method for a variety of skin problems and the new CryoProbe device makes it even easier for your veterinarian and your pet.

Side effects are limited, and there is little to no discomfort. The side effects that can be seen are hair loss at the treated area and sometimes change in the pigmentation of the skin.
