Laser Therapy

We are proud to be one of the few clinics that provides Class IV Hot Laser Therapy. Our new LiteCure Companion Therapy Laser produces 15,000 milliWatts (mW) of power – 30 times more powerful and effective than other lasers! No matter what kind of pets you have, laser therapy can help ease your pet’s pain by reducing inflammation, accelerating wound healing, and increasing circulation and mobility. You can learn more about the benefit of laser therapy from our veterinary team. Imagine you pet spending less time in their “cone of shame” and getting back being their healthy, happy self faster! How can my pets benefit from Laser Therapy? No matter what kind of pet you have, large or small, exotic or domestic, laser therapy can be part of the solution to help ease your pet’s pain. This powerful modality can effectively increase mobility, accelerate wound healing, aid bactericidal activity, and accelerate post-surgical rehabilitation. Below are a selection of conditions that can be treated with laser therapy:

  • Ulcerations and open wounds
  • Muscle, ligament and tendon injuries
  • Pododermatitis (inflammation of the paws)
  • Post-surgical and soft tissue trauma
  • Back pain
  • Neuromuscular disease
  • Acute and chronic ear infections
  • Gingivitis
  • Hot spots
  • Arthritis
  • Lick granulomas
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Anal Gland Infections

Deep-penetrating photons from the laser influence cell chemistry in a variety of beneficial ways. In addition, the infrared wavelengths create a warm sensation in your pet’s body at the precise location. Clinical studies and trials of laser therapy technology indicate the following beneficial effects of laser light therapy on tissues and cells:

  • Accelerated tissue repair and cell growth
  • Faster wound healing
  • Reduced fibrous tissue formation
  • Anti-inflammation
  • Analgesia
  • Increased vascular activity
  • Increased metabolic activity
  • Improved nerve function
  • Regulated immune system
  • Trigger point and acupuncture point stimulation

Our veterinary team will adjust treatment time, power and laser pulse frequency based on your pet’s individual condition and body size. With our newest and most powerful laser therapy unit, we are able to reduce the treatment time. Although improvement is often seen after the first visit, most patients require multiple treatments to experience the full benefits of laser therapy.
