Companion Laser Treatments for Pet Therapy
Rea Road Animal Hospital offers treatment for your pet with the therapeutic laser. This laser technique has its origins in Europe and Russia, and it has been used for there for many years. Physicians and chiropractors specializing in sports medicine now use it with great success on both professional and Olympic athletes. It is particularly effective for pain relief as well as improving the ability to heal.
We use the Class IV Solid State Therapy Laser, which has been approved by the FDA. This is the latest veterinary technology for
- Arthritis and degenerative joint disease
- Pain relief
- Enhanced healing after surgery
- Ear infections and inflammation
- Back pain
- Various skin conditions (hot spots, lick granulomas)
- Faster healing from traumatic injuries
The therapeutic laser doesn’t cut like the focused beam of a surgical laser. Instead, it uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissues without damaging them. Laser energy stimulates cells to create a biological response called “photobiomodulation,” which reduces pain and inflammation and increases the speed of healing.
Laser light is delivered through a non-invasive hand piece to treat the affected area. Your pet may feel gentle and soothing warmth. Most treatments take only a matter of minutes and even pets with chronic conditions can obtain relief after only a few sessions.
Non-invasive and painless, the companion laser has many advantages for your pet. Call today and ask about the amazing and effective companion laser treatment for pain relief.
