Our veterinary hospital is one of the first animal clinics in the region to add the use of therapeutic laser (also known as the cold laser). Our therapeutic laser can dramatically reduce pain, thereby reducing or eliminating the amount of medication needed to control it. These soothing, pain-free treatments send light deep beneath the surface to affect damaged cells. In addition to reducing the pain, this therapy also reduces inflammation and swelling, and speeds healing for numerous conditions including arthritis, hip dysplasia, back problems, ear infections, fractures and wounds.
A relatively new branch of medicine, the therapeutic laser delivers a concentrated and controlled amount of light energy into the damaged area. When the light interacts with damaged cells, a reaction occurs called photobiomodulation, which activates cells to accelerate healing and reduces swelling and pain. As our best friends age, recover from trauma or surgery, or simply need relief from everyday aches and pains, this advanced technology offers drug-free, surgery-fee, pain-free relief.
