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
Improve blood flow to the area
Improve nerve function
Some of the illnesses we have helped with laser therapy include:
Surgical incision sites
Back pain/disc disease
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!
What is Lyme Disease?
Lyme disease (Borreliosis) is an infection caused by bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi. It is transmitted by deer ticks and can infect many different animals, including dogs, cats, and humans.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
