Laser therapy is a relatively new therapeutic modality that offers significant benefits for veterinary patients. Lasers emit light energy of specific wavelengths which provide absorbable energy to the sub-cellular organelles, which help the cells to improve their normal functions. A few of the conditions which have been proven to benefit from laser therapy include: musculoskeletal disease – especially chronic degenerative joint disease and arthritis, neurological diseases including disk disease, ear infections, skin infections and wound healing, reduction of swelling and pain associated with inflammation, bladder disease, hot spots and more.
Laser therapy is relatively inexpensive and completely without side effects. It requires no anesthesia and can be done quite quickly.
If your dog or cat is suffering from any of the conditions mentioned above, speak with one of our doctors to see how laser therapy may be able to help.
