Laser Therapy

Non-traditional ways of treating illness and Holistic therapies are being used by medical professionals more and more. Veterinary medicine is no different, and one such therapy that our clinic has been using with great success is the Therapy Laser. The first thing to note is that this is not a cutting laser, it does not damage or cauterize tissue. A therapy laser uses light energy to activate cells and tissues by a process called Photobiostimulation. It is similar to the process by which plants use sunlight to grow and produce oxygen.

With laser therapy, we can direct light at a specific spot on your pet, producing fast and particular results with damaged tissue. We can use laser therapy with other treatments, or it can be used alone as an alternative to more traditional therapies.

Laser Therapy can:

  • Help wounds heal faster
  • Reduce scar tissue formation
  • Reduce/prevent swelling
  • Reduce/block pain
  • Improve blood flow to the area
  • Improve nerve function

Some of the illnesses we have helped with laser therapy include:

  • Arthritis
  • Hip/knee problems
  • Surgical incision sites
  • Back pain/disc disease
  • Skin conditions/infections
  • Cuts/scrapes/lacerations
  • Ear infections

Most laser treatments require 1 – 6 sessions, depending on the specific problem. Chronic conditions may require maintenance sessions every few months.

If you have any questions about laser therapy and how your pet will benefit from it, please give us a call, we would love to hear from you!
