WE ARE EXCITED TO INTRODUCE: Laser Therapy – Reduces Pain and Speeds Healing

We are excited to offer our patients Companion Laser Therapy. Laser therapy provides a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of conditions and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatment protocols. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your companion can benefit from this innovative approach to treating pain.

Applications for laser therapy include:

• Treatment of arthritis, degenerative joint disease, or hip dysplasia

• General pain management (sprains, strains, and stiffness)

• Post-surgery healing (spays, neuters, declaws, and other surgeries)

• Skin problems (hot spots, lick granulomas, infections)

• Dental procedures

• Fractures and wounds (bites, abrasions, and lesions)

• Ear infections

Laser Therapy

How does it work?

Laser therapy stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light
are administered to the body for about 3 to 8 minutes and absorbed by the
injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of
metabolism. This results in relief from pain, increased circulation, reduced
inflammation, and an acceleration of the healing process.

What can my pet expect during a laser therapy treatment session?

Simply put, it provides relief. As the laser is administered, most pets will relax and
enjoy the treatment. The relaxing and pain-free treatment will allow your pet
to be comfortable and any anxiety that your pet initially experiences will usually.
