Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a very advanced modern recovery technique that can help in the treatment of skin wounds, arthritis, post-operative recovery, and other conditions. The laser uses specific wavelengths of light and stimulates blood and oxygen supply to the specific body area in mind. Essentially, this allows the body to speed up the process of repairing any damaged cells. The process is safe, non-invasive, and your pet can go home the same day. 

Laser therapy allows for increased healing time and can make recovery speedy. Several sessions of laser therapy treatment are required to achieve maximum benefits. Depending on the severity of the injury, treatments usually take 4-8 sessions to produce maximum results. If it is decided to use laser therapy, your veterinarian will be able to assign an appropriate number of sessions and monitor progress.
