Our veterinary clinic is determined to bring you the most advanced medical services to ensure your pet’s health and comfort. In that spirit, we offer therapeutic laser treatments that deliver specific wavelengths of light that have been shown to increase circulation and reduce inflammation in the target area. You can think of these lasers as stimulating similar areas as traditional acupuncture. The laser, however, is completely noninvasive and painless for your pet, and many animals relax and enjoy their therapy sessions.

Laser Therapy Process

One of the best uses for laser therapy includes pain relief of both chronic and acute conditions. Post-operative pain can be especially effectively treated with this method in a non-invasive and drug-free way. In addition to pain relief, laser therapy can also contribute to accelerated tissue repair and cell growth to help the damaged area after surgery or injury. Torn tendons or ligaments and incision or wound sites alike can benefit from these treatments. It can also help reduce possibly painful scar tissue formation and enhance nerve repair and function.

Additionally, these types of therapies can also improve blood and lymph vessel activity. Lymph nodes are the major sites of white blood cells, and are important for proper immune system functioning. When they’re working well, they act as guards against foreign invaders and cancerous cells. Laser therapy helps to increase immune system response through these means to keep your pet healthy throughout their lifetime.

If you have any questions about the procedure or are wondering if it’s right for your pet’s situation, please don’t hesitate to call us.
