We are very excited to offer Laser Therapy to our patients. Laser therapy works by increasing the amount of available oxygen to the cell's mitochondria. Having oxygen available to the power plant of the cell boosts healing and reduces inflammation. Therefore, pets heal faster from surgery and chronic illnesses. Laser Therapy also reduces inflammation in joints and works well in geriatric patients helping them to move with less pain.
What will your pet feel?
Laser therapy produces a warm sensation over the affected area, similar to a heating pad. Each session lasts 10-20 minutes depending on the number of sites treated, and your pet can sit or lay during the procedure. Laser therapy will not cause changes to your pet's skin or hair and has no side effects. Some pets experience results right away, but others may take several treatments to feel a difference. Please call us if you would like more information about Laser Therapy for your pet!
