Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a method of treating many illnesses and injuries. By using laser therapy, your pet can be provided with drug-free relief for their condition and can be used in conjunction with other treatments as well. In most cases, pets and owners notice a difference within a matter of days to hours depending on the condition and the pet.
The Companion Therapy Laser that is used at the Animal Clinic of Pinckney uses a laser light to penetrate but not damage your pet’s tissue. A noninvasive handpiece is used to deliver the laser to the area being treated. Some pets feel a gentle, soothing warmth as the laser is passed over the affected areas. In many cases, laser therapy sessions take only a matter of minutes.

Conditions laser therapy can be used for include:

  • Wounds
  • Arthritis
  • Inflammation
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Periodontal Disease
  • Post-surgical Pain
  • Sprains, strains, fractures
  • Geriatric Care
  • And more…

Laser therapy stimulates healing from within the body itself. The cells are stimulated by non-thermal photons administered by the laser for 3 to 8 minutes. This stimulation causes the injured cells to respond with a higher metabolic rate resulting in relief and accelerated healing.

If you feel that laser therapy could benefit the life of your pet, discuss this option at your next exam.
