Laser Therapy

We are pleased to offer our patients the benefit of Laser Therapy. Similar to what may be found in human alternative medicine, this type of laser provides a deep-penetrating light beam that releases endorphins and stimulates injured cells to heal at a faster rate.

The benefits of therapeutic laser include:

-speeding up the healing process following injury or surgery

– helps to ease pain (by the release of endorphins) and improves mobility thereby increasing the patient’s quality of life

– offers an anti-inflammatory effect on the cells as circulation is increased

Some of the conditions that respond to therapeutic laser therapy include, but are not limited to:

* arthritis/degenerative joint disease

* hip/elbow dysplasia

* otitis (inflamed, infected ears)

* gingivitis

* insect bites/stings

* post surgical analgesia and healing (Note:  ALL of our surgical patients receive a complimentary post-operative therapeutic laser treatment)

* wounds and burns

* pyoderma (skin infections)

* lick granuloma

* cystitis (bladder infection)

Most procedures can be done as an appointment and do not require sedation.
