Clinical studies have shown that laser therapy is highly effective in both routine and specialty procedures.
Conditions laser therapy can treat include:
- Infections and inflammation
- Cuts and bites
- Sprains, strains, and fractures
- Pain relief after tooth extraction or surgery
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Hip dysplasia
Our veterinarians can use laser therapy for geriatric care, including for degenerative joint disease and arthritis, to alleviate your pet’s aches. We can also use laser therapy as part of your pet’s dental care, especially to treat periodontal disease, to restore your pet’s gum health.
Laser therapy is a non-invasive procedure where our provider directs a laser light to the targeted area, and slowly moves it back and forth over it. Your pet will feel a soothing warmth that can help them relax during treatment.
The benefits of laser therapy for pets include:
- Anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties
- Quicker tissue repair and cell regeneration
- Improved metabolism
- Increased cardiovascular and nerve function
- Boosted immune system
Our staff can also use laser therapy on trigger and acupuncture points.
Laser therapy is a reliable solution for pets with fewer treatment options like older pets with reduced organ function, exotic pets that are challenging to give medication to, or pets who can’t take medication due to health conditions like liver disease.
With laser therapy, we can effectively reduce treatment time thanks to how well pets respond to it. This can also make treatment more cost-effective. The treatments usually take 15 to 30 minutes, and your pet can go back to a normal and joyful life faster.
Advantages of Laser Therapy for Senior Pets
Laser therapy offers several advantages for senior pets. This non-invasive treatment effectively alleviates pain associated with age-related conditions such as arthritis and joint stiffness. By reducing inflammation and stimulating blood flow to affected areas, laser therapy promotes faster healing and improved mobility. It's a gentle and painless option that can be safely administered alongside other treatments, providing holistic care for senior pets and enhancing their overall quality of life.
