LASER THERAPY AND YOUR PET

Clients are surprised that pets too, can receive laser therapy! Veterinary laser therapy is a non-invasive, pain free, surgery free and drug free treatment used to treat a variety of ailments and can also be performed in conjunction with existing conditions.  Pet laser treatment helps relieve painful, inflamed areas anywhere on your faithful companion K9 and loving kitty. 

Your pet’s hair does not need to be clipped and your pet will enjoy the warming, gentle treatment. Eye protection is worn while your pet receives treatment.The process helps relieve pain by reducing swelling and inflammation and through the release of endorphin’s. It also stimulates injured cells to heal at an accelerated pace.

 

Some conditions treated by laser therapy:

* relieves pain, discomfort

* reduces swelling and inflammation

* speeds healing

* muscle, ligament and tendon injuries

* post surgical and soft tissue trauma

* back pain

* ear infections

* gingivitis

* hot spots and open wounds

* arthritis and hip dysplasia

* anal gland infections

 

Laser therapy has no known side effects and is considered safe and effective. Follow normal treatment protocols as outlined by your veterinarian. You don’t need to be overly cautious nor should your pet overdo any activities. Just business as usual.You may see relief in the first treatment or so as pain and inflammation are reduced. For example: better mobility for joint conditions, drying and healing of dermatological issues, faster healing for wounds and incisions, and your pet just seeming more relaxed and comfortable. For some conditions, a series of treatments may be necessary before you see results due to the severity or complexity of the condition.
