Veterinary diagnostics are some of the most important tools we use in veterinary medicine. They help us detect disease before there are physical symptoms. This allows us to treat your pet more effectively (and more affordably too) before the disease has time to progress.
Laser therapy is a drug-free and non-invasive therapy. Common conditions that are treated with the help of laser therapy include arthritis/degenerative joint disease, chronic pain, spinal disc disease, wounds, surgical incisions, ear hematomas, muscle sprain/strains, fractures, and so much more.

It utilizes a process known as photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy. During this process photons or packets of light energy, are sent deep into tissue without damaging it. This energy is absorbed by the cell and increases fuel or energy within impaired or injured cells. This increased energy/ATP production leads to decreased inflammation, decreased pain, and accelerated healing.

Treatment protocols are unique to each patient and condition. Treatment times will vary. Laser therapy can be used as a complementary adjunct therapy to other treatments and medications. Your pet will feel a gentle and soothing warmth during the treatment. They may have relief following their first treatment as pain and inflammation are reduced. For some conditions, a series of treatments may be necessary before you see results due to the severity or complexity of the underlying condition.
