Therapy laser is a highly safe and effective treatment that treats both chronic and acute pain. It uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue while eliminating harmful toxins and waste. The laser used to perform the surgery is a beam of high intensity light that vaporizes and cuts tissue. The lack of a physical incision results in a drastic reduction in pain and discomfort, making laser surgery an optimal method for many veterinary surgical procedures.
Treatments are a safe and relaxing experience for pets. During the procedure, the warmth of the laser provides pain relief and comfort, and many pets become so relaxed they even fall asleep!
Therapy laser has been successful in treating acute conditions such as wounds, allergies, and post-surgical pain relief. Degenerative joint disease, periodontal disease, and hip dysplasia are some of the chronic conditions that see improvement when treated with therapeutic laser.
Treatment protocols are unique to each patient and condition and will vary in time and complexity. In general, most pets experience an improvement in their condition within the first few treatments. Therapy laser can also be used to enhance other treatment plans recommended by our veterinarians. To learn more about our therapy laser service, please call our office at 303-494-7877.
