Laser therapy is a drug-free and surgery-free way to reduce pain for pets and people. It can be used virtually anywhere there is pain, swelling or inflammation.

 

We’ve been using all kinds of lasers in veterinary medicine for years. We purchased our surgery laser about fifteen years ago, to perform procedures of all kinds with less bleeding, swelling and pain.

 

Our therapeutic laser provides “cold” laser instead of a burning or cutting laser beam. (Compared to the surgery laser the beam is cold but it actually feels pleasantly warm.) The light waves produced by a therapeutic or cold laser penetrate gently into tissue where they affect the enzymes, cell membranes and mitochondria (the energy factories within each cell) in individual cells. Laser therapy helps to increase endorphin release while decreasing inflammation and normalizing tissues. The laser beam stimulates nerve regeneration, muscle relaxation and immune system response. In a nutshell, the laser beam relieves pain, reduces inflammation, and accelerates tissue repairs and cell growth.

 

The laser beam is non-invasive and side-effect-free. Dogs and cats remain calm and comfortable during treatment, since all they feel is warmth. Relief from pain can be so quick that an animal that hopped in on three legs walks back out using all four. Laser therapy allows your pet to heal faster after any surgery or traumatic injury. It eases pain and improves mobility, minimizing the use of medication. It can provide senior or arthritic pets relief from aches and pains and allows for more freedom and quality of life. Everyday disorders such as lick granulomas (a chronic kind of skin sore) and chronic ear infections that cause pain and discomfort are instantaneously relieved.

 

A single treatment with the laser usually costs between $34 and $45. For some uses, such as arthritis or an ear hematoma, a client would purchase a package of 4-6 treatments. For arthritis we would treat the pet two to three times a week for 6 treatments and then maintain the effect by treating every 3-6 weeks. The package cost will depend on how many joints we are treating. Treating an incision immediately after surgery or a single treatment of a small area can cost as little as $20.

 

They have spent their whole life being your friend. Isn’t it time you helped them through the aches and pains of everyday life?
