Gentle Vet Animal Hospital, Dr. Ehud Sela: Cryosurgery for a nose lesion in an older cat.

A 14 yrs old cat with a small ulcerating lesion on the nose was presented for possible surgery.

Due to the cat's age, low body weight and moderate renal disease she was considered a higher risk patient for general anesthesia.

The cat has had a malignant tumor removed from the same location a few years back.

The Cryosurgery procedure was done at our hospital as an outpatient procedure with the owner present.

The cat tolerated wonderfully a few cycles of quick freeze and slow thaw of the lesion.

The cat was released home with the owner and the prognosis for the lesion to regress is considered good, as it was treated at an early stage.

Please call our Gentle Vet Animal Hospital at: 954-972-5900 with any questions you might have regarding this or any other procedure.
