Edmonton South Animal Hospital’s CryoProbe™

dog veterinarian cyroprobe skin lesion EdmontonEdmonton South Animal Hospital strives to provide advanced treatment options for our patients, including the CryoProbe™. This is a small hand-held device that gives our veterinarians a successful, quick, non-invasive method for applying ultra-cold pressure to treat and remove a host of skin lesions from pets. It delivers a minutely-accurate (to the millimeter) stream of nitrous oxide at -88.3C to remove even the tiniest of lesions, even in very sensitive areas. Because the CryoProbe™ is so accurate and effective, our veterinarians can precisely treat and remove only the affected tissue while leaving surrounding healthy tissues undisturbed.

CryoProbeTM Benefits for Lesion Removal

Here at Edmonton South Animal Hospital, we regularly use the CryoProbe™ to treat or remove the following types of skin conditions

  • Papillomas (Warts)—Small, usually benign, growths that grow on the skin or mucous membranes; caused by a virus.

  • Cysts—Usually non-cancerous, these are abnormal tissues filled with liquid or solid material from abnormal breakdown processes.

  • Distichia—Eyelashes growing from abnormal growths on a dog’s eyelid (can damage the cornea or conjunctiva if not removed).

  • Epuli—A type of tumor-like mass growing from a pet’s gums, sometimes deforming the face and disrupting healthy dental alignment (uncommon in cats, but more common in brachycephalic dog breeds like boxers).

  • Perianal Adenomas—Tumors developing from the sebaceous glands around the anus (most common in intact males, though occasionally appearing in spayed females; very rare in cats).

  • Sebaceous Adenomas—Usually benign, these tumors are overgrowths of sebaceous gland cells (oil producing glands within the hair follicles).

  • Oral Tumors—The CryoProbe™ effectively removes most types of benign and malignant oral tumors successfully when caught early enough.

  • Eyelid Tumors—There are several types of eyelid tumors that can afflict both cats and dogs. The CryoProbe™ is extremely accurate at removing even the tiniest of these tumors without disturbing adjacent tissues.

The CryoProbe™ is an excellent, non-invasive treatment option for all of these conditions and more, and is a good option for most pets. With this incredibly accurate cryotherapy instrument, we can:

  • Deliver the ultra-cold nitrous oxide to a depth of 5 millimeters into your pet’s skin (at 725psi) so that the root of the growth can be effectively killed and removed.

  • Stop even extremely small growths quickly to protect your pet’s health and promote a quicker recovery.

  • Accurately treat lesions even in very sensitive areas (such as around the eyes, mouth and other mucus membranes) with minimal discomfort for your pet.

  • Treat a host of skin conditions, usually without any special pre- or post-operative care; your pet can resume normal activity after the appointment.

  • Save pet owners money with this treatment over more expensive, invasive procedures that require more recovery time.

Your pet may feel a slight tingling or discomfort at the site, but this passes quickly and there should be no lengthy recovery time when we use cryotherapy treatment on your pet.

To address any unusual growths on your pet, or find out if the CryoProbe™ is a good treatment option, please call us today at 780.989.5595.
