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
  • Fractures
  • Ear infections and inflammation
  • Back pain
  • Tendonitis
  • Sprains
  • 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.

"We are so pleased and blessed to have Dr. Dozier and your clinic. Time and time again, you all and Dr. Dozier especially have been unfailingly kind, considerate and caring beyond most of any care we have experienced at vets. Having bred goldens for over 50 years we have experienced many vet clinics. Dr. Dozier tops them all. He is unhurried, makes one feel like you are his only client in all the world, takes his time, is thorough and careful and you feel you have his 100% undivided attention. No vet in the hundreds we have worked with has been so available, so kind, willing to take his time, as Dr. Dozier. HE IS THE BEST! Certainly the wonderful staff is a reflection, plus we comment all the time that Dr. Dozier seems to have very little turn over. You all must be happy and respected. Bless you all!" - Ann Chase
"We love Dr. Michael!! She has been so wonderful going down the path with us on our elderly yellow Lab, Bailey Baroo. She has worked with us to find the right blend of food, medicine and exercise to give us more years with him and we appreciate that when she hears hoof beats she thinks horses, not zebras! Everyone at RRAH is wonderful, but Dr. Michael is extra special!" -Lesli An Orio

"Rea Road Animal Hospital has been our vet since we moved to Charlotte 9 years ago. Our dog, Bandit, will be 18 years old in September and we attribute his longevity to the doctors and especially the staff at this establishment. We have recommended the facility to our friends and neighbors and they have used the hospital for vet services, boarding, grooming and a place to love their pets." - Stephen & Heidi Kramer
