Laser Therapy is scientifically proven to reduce swelling, inflammation and pain while stimulating the cells that are responsible for tissue repair. Laser therapy treatment is safe, painless and fast. Your dog will wear special protective eyeglasses for the duration of the procedure to protect their eyes, the laser light will then be delivered through a non-invasive handpiece. Your pet will feel a warming sensation in the area that is being treated, this is not painful and most pets relax and enjoy the sensation and the attention.
Treatment times depend on the patient and the condition being treated. After examination, Dr. Laura Tucker, our experienced Veterinarian who specializes in laser therapy and acupuncture will create a treatment protocol that is unique to your pet.
Just some of the conditions that we recommend laser therapy for are;
- Muscle sprains and strains
- Post-operative fracture repair
- Degenerative joint disease
- Hip Dysplasia
