We recently added a therapeutic laser to our hospital to provide your pet with the latest technology in healing! The laser treats tissue underneath the skin by emiiting a wave length of light to effectively increase circulation, promote healing and reduce pain and inflammation.
Veterinary laser therapy provides a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free and drug-free treatment that is used to treat many conditions, including pain relief, wound healing, skin Conditions (open sores and wounds), burns, ear disease, and many other conditions; and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatments.
Laser treatment for dogs employs deep-penetrating light to promote a chain of chemical reactions known as photobiostimulation. This process helps relieve pain through the release of endorphins, and it stimulates injured cells to heal at an accelerated pace.
Although improvement is often seen after the first visit, your dog’s condition will influence how often and long laser therapy is necessary. Treatments vary in length, but most sites require 3 to 30 minutes. Laser treatments for dogs are cumulative, so each additional treatment facilitates a greater improvement in your dog’s condition. The length and frequency of treatments vary by condition, so allow your veterinarian to help devise a sufficient laser treatment schedule for your canine companion.
