Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy provides relief…

We are excited to now offer laser therapy to our patients. This pain free, drug free, non invasive treatment can be used to treat a large variety of conditions. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, the laser has been shown to provide relief of pain and a faster rate of healing! Our staff and clients are already impressed with the results we are seeing with treatment and our patients seem to enjoy the soothing effects of the therapy.

Laser therapy uses high energy light to penetrate deep into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. This process helps to speed healing, decrease inflammation, increase endorphins and provide relief from pain. The therapy stimulates the body to heal from within without the use of drugs. While new to our hospital, laser therapy has been in use for many years. Most professional sports teams, as well as the Olympic team, use the same therapy for their athletes.
