Where healing and health bring the animal and human bond closer together.
We now offer Therapeutic Laser Treatments!
If your pet has recently been injured or has chronic pain, laser therapy can help reduce pain and inflammation.
Conditions where laser therapy can help:
- General pain (stiffness, strains, sprains, etc)
- Arthritis, hip dysplasia, degenerative joint disease
- Skin conditions (infections, hot spots, lick granulomas)
- Ear infections
- Wounds (abrasions, lesions, bites)
- Neurologic disorders (intervertebral disc disease)
- Post-surgery pain (spays, neuters, declaws, laceration repair)
- Dental procedures (extractions, stomatitis)
The Laser provides a non-invasive, pain-free, and drug free treatment for a variety of conditions and can be used along with other treatment protocols. The benefits can be seen in most cases within hours depending on the condition. The laser administers non-thermal photons of light that stimulate and increase metabolism in the treated cells. This causes an increase in circulation, reduction of inflammation, an accelerated healing process, and pain relief. What should your pet be expecting during the laser treatment? RELIEF! It's like a warm massage, and most pets relax due to the almost immediate relief of pain.
So whether your pet is recovering from surgery or an injury, healing from wounds, or just arthritic, therapeutic laser maybe an option to help your furry friend. Give us a call and we will gladly discuss the available options for your pet!
