What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free, noninvasive treatment to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and speed healing for your dog or cat. Laser therapy has been scientifically proven to be successful in treating post-surgical pain and many acute and chronic conditions.
How does it work?
Class IV deep tissue laser therapy uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it. Laser energy induces a biological response in the cell called "photo-bio-modulation". The laser light is delivered through a noninvasive handpiece to treat the affected area. Your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth. Most treatments take only a matter of minutes.
Some of the acute conditions laser therapy can treat include: wounds, allergies, infections, cuts or bites, inflammations, tooth extraction pain relief, sprains, strains and fractures, and post-surgical healing and pain relief.
Chronic conditions that the laser therapy has been proven to treat are: Degenerative Joint Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, peridontal disease, lick granulomas, geriatric care, hip dysplasia, feline acne, tendonitis, otitus, and arthritis.
What are the costs?
Treatment protocols are unique to each patient and condition. Therefore, treatments will vary in time, complexity, and cost.
Laser therapy can also be used to enhance other treatment plans recommended.
