Laser Therapy

If your pet is feeling pain, has inflammation, or a wound, the laser is a sterile, pain free, surgery free, drug-free treatment. The laser is used to treat a variety of injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions, numerous dermatological problems, and pain. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, the laser has been shown to provide relief and speed healing.

The Companion therapy laser system send photons, or packets of light energy, deep into tissue without damaging it. These protons are absorbed within the mitochondria of the cells and induce a chemical change called "photo-bio-modulation". This light energy then inspires production of ATP in the cell. ATP is the fuel, or energy cells need for repair and rejuvenation. Impaired or injured cells do not make this fuel at an optimal rate. Increased ATP production leads to healthier cells, healthier tissue, and healthier animals.

We are proud to be able to offer Laser Therapy to our patients in an effort to reduce swelling in joints and address soft tissue pain problems. Treatments last 3-6 minutes per site and require no anesthesia. Your pet will be very relaxed as this laser produces only slight warmth in the inflamed tissue. Laser Therapy for chronic conditions can require up to 5 or 6 treatments to get your pet to a comfortable state. Booster treatments are then required every 4-8 weeks afterwards to maintain the reduced pain.
