Therapeutic Laser? Yes, please!

As a student of veterinary medicine, one of the first things you come to accept is that cats are, well… different.  Most of us had worked in clinics prior to starting vet school and owned cats ourselves so we were already aware of their staggering difference compared to dogs as a pet/companion/couch ornament/furry thing that lives in your house and you see on occasion at feeding time or for 2am cuddles; but the differences don’t stop there.  First year vet school is all about basic anatomy and physiology and it’s here we discover just how unique our feline friends are.   Read more …

Laser Therapy – Part II

Laser therapy is relatively new biotechnology that uses the science of biostimulation to speed healing.  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-free, pain-free relief.  There are no known side-effects of our Companion deep tissue laser therapy as treatments are non-invasive.  Depending on the injury, patients can find relief after only 1 treatment.  More chronic conditions usually require a series of treatments.  Don’t hesitate to call for an appointment to see if laser could benefit your best friend.

Therapeutic Laser – A Revolutionary New Approach

What an exciting time for veterinary medicine!  The use of therapeutic lasers is providing a revolutionary approach for the treatment of so many of our patients’ needs.

Laser therapy is the use of an intense beam of laser light directed into tissues to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and accelerate healing.  The beam penetrates deeply into tissues and produces positive tissue changes.  The results can be amazing.

What patients will benefit from Therapeutic Laser treatment?

Our new Laser machine is now being used for all routine surgical and dental procedures to help reduce pain and inflammation and speed healing.

Patients with a wide variety of acute (recent) problems will benefit from Therapeutic Laser therapy.  Common to these problems are the components of pain, inflammation, and tissue healing.  These conditions may be treated only once, or, multiple times over several days or weeks.  Just a few examples include wounds, fractures, abscesses, anal sacculitis, otitis, hematomas, sprains, strains, muscle discomfort, cystitis, dermatitis.

Chronic conditions involving pain, inflammation, and healing will also be helped, although treatment has to extend over a longer time.  The results seen with osteoarthritis can be so rewarding and, in fact, life prolonging.  The same positive results can be achieved for lick granulomas, nerve damage, and elbow hygromas to name but a few.

Because Therapeutic Lasers are so versatile the indications for their use are almost limitless.  Don’t hesitate to give us a call if you think your pet could benefit from the healing power of the laser.
