Laser light therapy is a painless, non-invasive treatment for a variety of uncomfortable conditions. Whether your pet is recovering from surgery, has sustained an injury, or is suffering from a chronic condition, laser therapy may be the most effective approach to pain relief and healing. Most commonly used to treat discomfort in aging and arthritic pets, this innovative technology is also very effective at treating a wide variety of physical conditions. Through the use of laser therapy, we have helped pets with arthritis, hip dysplasia, spinal cord issues, skin conditions, ear infections, and wounds due to physical trauma, degenerative joint diseases, sprains, gingivitis, insect bites, inflammation, burns and more. Because of laser therapy, these pets recovered more quickly and returned to a happier, more comfortable quality of life.
"I have patients and their owners that were coming in to discuss euthanasia because of arthritis, and two years later, they are still on this Earth because of the laser". - Dr. Tracy Wight, DVM
When tissue is exposed to the laser light, reactions occur on a cellular level – enzymes within the cells absorb the energy and stimulate healing and blood flow to the treated areas. The result is reduced inflammation, improved immune response, and most importantly, pain relief. When used in combination with other medical treatments, the laser therapy may help patients reduce the need for prescription medications. For chronic conditions or major trauma, laser treatments are most beneficial when multiple sessions are completed; we are pleased to offer laser therapy packages for pets requiring repeated laser treatments.
