We are happy to offer veterinary laser therapy at our Bethayres location. Our class IV therapeutic laser provides soothing pain relief and healing for inflammation, swelling, tissue injuries, and surgical incision sites, among other things. Laser therapy is non-invasive, drug-free, and can take as little as five minutes per treatment session.
If your pet has an acute or chronic condition that might be causing them discomfort, get in touch with us so we can see if they’re a good candidate for veterinary laser therapy.
When you think of a laser, you might picture something that cuts. However, our therapeutic laser does the opposite, using a process called photobiomodulation to increase cell activity and repair of damaged tissue cells. This process occurs as the light energy is absorbed through the skin and deep into the muscles and connective tissues. Everything happens at the cellular level, and the results of treatment are cumulative, building up over time.
Laser therapy is extremely versatile in its uses. Whether your pet is living with acute pain or chronic pain, or has a wound that’s slow to heal, our class IV laser might be able to help. We often use laser therapy in conjunction with other treatment modalities to give our patients the best results.
Conditions that can be improved with laser therapy include:
- Ear infections
- Skin infections (fungal, bacterial)
- Lacerations, puncture wounds, burns, and abrasions
- Surgical sites
- Bruising and swelling
- Lick granulomas/lesions
- Back pain
Laser therapy can help to achieve several beneficial effects for your pet, including:
- Pain relief
- Reduced swelling and inflammation
- Increased circulation
- Faster healing
