At Barre Animal Hospital, we are committed to continuously providing our clients with the most up to date options for the best possible care of their cherished animal companions. Over the past several decades, one such innovative treatment option that has become increasingly popular in treating and managing a number of conditions in pets is laser therapy. We are pleased to offer this cutting edge technology as part of our comprehensive list of animal health care services.
What is laser therapy?
The therapeutic laser is a small, handheld device that emits an intense beam of light known as a laser. The laser painlessly penetrates areas of the body that are experiencing pain or have suffered some type of injury or trauma (such as a surgical wound) to help reduce pain, improve mobility and speed up the healing process. It is a non-invasive, drug-free and painless treatment option that produces excellent results in most patients.
What can laser therapy be used for?
Laser therapy can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including, but not limited to:
- Acute and Chronic Pain
- Disc Disease
- Joint, Tendon and Ligament Problems
- Muscle Aches
- Strains and Sprains
- Wound Healing
- Much More…
How many times will my pet need to receive laser therapy?
Every animal is different, and although the results of laser therapy can often be seen after just one session, the number and frequency of treatments will vary by patient. The doctor can provide you with a specific treatment plan once your pet has been evaluated.
If your loved one suffers from any of the above conditions, or just appears to be experiencing pain or discomfort, laser therapy might provide them with the relief they need. Call us today to learn more!
