Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is primarily used to reduce swelling, pain, and speed the healing process. These mechanisms allow us to successfully treat a wide range of conditions non-invasively and without drugs.
Cold Laser Therapy
The cold laser therapy is a noninvasive procedure that uses light to stimulate cells and increase blood circulation. At the correct laser wavelength, pain signals are reduced and nerve sensitivity decreases. The procedure also releases endorphines, or natural painkillers. The procedure is based on the idea that light is absorbed into the cells. The process, known as photo-biotherapy, stimulates protein synthesis and cell metabolism, which improves cell health and functionality. The therapy can take as little as eight to 10 minutes on a small dog or cat, or about a half hour for bigger dogs with more arthritic areas.
Therapeutic laser can be used to treat a myriad of conditions. Most commonly it is used for post-operative pain management after orthopedic surgeries, musculoskeletal injuries, soft tissue injuries (such as sprains and strains), back pain and arthritis. However, it can also be used for other inflammatory issues such as cystitis (bladder inflammation).
Our state-of-the-art hospital features a full laboratory, digital radiology, ultrasonography, the most commprehensive vaccines available, and a staff that is dedicated to providing the best care possible for your pet.
Our doctors and staff understand that not all pets are able to come to the office and that fear and anxiety are greatly reduced by examining a pet in its home environment. Therefore, we routinely go to our clients’ homes and perform exams.
