Minor surgical or diagnostic procedures like biopsies of the skin, lancing an abscess or lasering a wart can be done with local anesthesia with a subcutaneous injection of carbocaine or lidocaine. The injectable agents cause a 1 to 4 hour loss of sensation to the area that the procedure is being performed. If movement during the procedure is perceived, we will combine an injectable medication that will be reversed after the procedure is completed to keep the patient calm and immobile during the surgical procedure.
We can explain how what method we will use on your pet, if you have any questions about this procedure.
