The addition of laser therapy for pets has been a huge benefit for pets suffering from arthritis, and its use in speeding healing of wounds and in recovery from surgery is nothing short of amazing.
Park Vet Hospital & Urgent Care ’s veterinarians and staff are pleased to offer this technological advance for the benefit of all our four-legged friends.
Laser therapy has been used in sports medicine to relieve pain and improve the body’s ability to heal. The concentrated light of a laser stimulates cell growth and reproduction so when cells have been damaged, as in the case of a wound or a surgical incision, use of laser therapy encourages the body to heal quicker.
In senior animals, laser therapy has proven most impressive in the treatment of pet arthritis . Within just a few treatments, pets whose lives were greatly hindered by the pain and stiffness of arthritis have been able to resume more of their normal activities. Once pets are able to move about comfortably again, they resume exercising, which increases their quality of life even more.
At Park Vet Hospital & Urgent Care , we use laser therapy to treat many different conditions including:
- Wound therapy
- Ear inflammation
- Post-surgical wounds
Pets that undergo laser therapy tend to have less reliance on drugs and significantly improved mobility.
If your pet has been suffering with arthritis or other conditions that may be helped through use of laser therapy, please contact us to speak with one of Park Vet Hospital & Urgent Care ’s technicians or doctors.
