LASER THERAPY FOR YOUR PETS

 

Therapeutic cold laser treatments can provide remarkable relief from chronic pain.  During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area.  This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain.  As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.  Treatments last about 2-5 minutes per site and are completely comfortable for the patient. 

 

High-energy laser therapy can penetrate deeply into the body to diminish pain and stimulate healing.  Many pets suffer from chronic pain due to arthritis caused by hip dysplasia, spondylosis, traumatic injury, etc.  A class of drugs, non-steroid anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS), has provided significant relief from pain, but long-term use of these drugs can have some undesirable effects.  In addition, some animals are NSAID-intolerant. 

 

Cats are particularly sensitive to some of these medications, so there are fewer pain management options available for the feline patient.  Therapeutic cold laser treatments provide a safe solution for them.
