laserTherapy Our Laser unit is the most advanced small animal laser on the market and is FDA approved. Laser Therapy works by using two wavelengths of light to increase the body’s natural healing processes. The continuous wavelength of light feeds the mitochondria of the cell increasing the rate of repair. It also increases blood flow and lymphatic return decreasing inflammation and edema. The other wavelength is pulsed and has an immediate effect on pain by interfering with pain impulses being sent to the brain. It also stimulates the release of endorphins, our body’s natural pain relievers.

We have witnessed our laser therapy unit save many animals’ lives. We have several Dachshund owners who thought their only option was spinal surgery or euthanasia. It is rewarding to see these dogs walking normally and pain free. It has also helped many geriatric patients who cannot tolerate oral anti-inflammatory medications. We have utilized the laser on difficult healing wounds such as spider bites and hotspots. We have seen the laser help heal cruciate injuries at a much faster rate than oral medications alone. The therapy sessions often times are less expensive than keeping your pet on daily medications and there are no side effects.

Our Laser Therapy is begun by an induction phase of one session every other day for the first 3-6 sessions depending on the severity of the condition. The Laser Therapy sessions range from 10 minutes to 45 minutes depending on areas of treatment. After the induction phase the sessions should be done once monthly as maintenance. Many of our patients have been able to completely discontinue oral medications while receiving Laser Therapy.
