At Town & Country Animal Hospital, we take pride in offering the latest in advanced veterinary medicine and tools. We are credentialed to perform laser therapy which has emerged as a breakthrough medical tool in the treatment of pets.
Laser Therapy (Class IV Laser)
Laser therapy (photobiomodulation) is the use of specific wavelengths of light to create therapeutic effects. These effects include:
- Improved healing time
- Pain reduction
- Increased circulation
- Decreased swelling with increased range of motion in the joints
The therapy does not require sedation and there is little or no sensation during treatments. Treatment sessions last from 3 to 15 minutes, and the number of sessions required depends upon the severity of the medical condition.
Laser therapy also can be used in conjunction with other forms of therapy. Treatment protocols are set for each individual and can be used long term without detrimental effects to treat conditions such as:
- Joint pain
- Muscle strains
- Post-traumatic injuries
- Post-surgical pain
- Hip dysplasia
- Chronic wounds
