What Can a Cryoprobe Treat?

At TLC Animal Hospital in El Paso, we are committed to helping pets heal from injuries and medical conditions. One of the ways your pet can heal is through the use of cryoprobe treatment. Our veterinarian will conduct a pet exam to determine whether or not cryoprobe treatment is appropriate. 

Cryoprobe Treatment For Skin Conditions

Cryoprobe treatment can be used for a variety of skin conditions including cysts, warts, and oral and eyelid tumors, among others. If the tumors are detected early enough, cryoprobe treatment can render a pet cancer-free. It works by applying an injection that quickly freezes diseased tissues in the bodies of pets. After the diseased tissue is frozen, it essentially dies, leaving your pet to recover. Many pet owners prefer this to more invasive procedures, especially since it is less painful and does not involve a lengthy recovery process. When Cryoprobe treatment is used to remove a skin lesion, for example, the average recovery time for a dog is only two weeks.

What is a Cryoprobe?

Shaped like a pen, a cryoprobe delivers a small dose of nitrous oxide to the area of your pet's body that needs healing. This instrument is used during cryotherapy and contains a compressor, temperature controls, and controls that circulate helium through the instrument. In most cases, it only takes one course of treatment to heal your pet. If your pet’s case is advanced, multiple treatments may be necessary.
