At Veterinary Services Ltd, we strive to stay on the cutting edge of technology in order to offer your pet the best and most advanced medicine we can. We are always looking for new ways to care for your pets, especially when pain and healing are concerned. Laser therapy is a new kind of technology used in wound healing and pain management. Laser therapy is a completely non-invasive tool that helps to decrease inflammation and speed up wound healing. It works by using light to stimulate the regeneration of healthy cells and increase blood circulation to the affected area. Some common ailments laser therapy is used for are otitis, arthritis, soft tissue injuries, and wound healing. Laser therapy has become a vital part of our pain management protocol and can greatly improve the quality of your animal’s life as well as your life, because if your animal is happy and feeling good, you are happy. Your pet’s condition, and the severity of that condition, dictate how long and how frequently treatments would be needed. Length of laser treatments can last anywhere from 2-10 minutes per session. Laser therapy works most effectively when multiple treatments are performed. Although we can see improvement already after the first treatment, most of the time additional treatments will be needed to get the best results. If you think your pet may benefit from laser therapy, please call us today and we can develop a protocol specific to your pet and their condition.
