We are excited to announce that we now offer the latest technology in health care for your pet — Therapeutic Laser Therapy. Our therapy laser provides a deep-penetrating light that is absorbed and scattered, generating warmth within the tissues. As light is absorbed within the cells of the tissues it allows relief of pain by releasing endorphins and it increases the cells metabolism. This causes the following chain of events:
Accelerates healing time
This new therapy allows relief of pain by releasing endorphins and stimulation cells to heal faster. Your pet will relax and enjoy the pain-free treatments.
What Is Veterinary Laser Therapy? Laser therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free, non-invasive treatment to relieve pain. It accelerates the body's natural healing process. Laser therapy is effective in treating chronic conditions, acute conditions, and post-surgical pain and inflammation in pets. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds or simply aging, laser therapy has been shown to provide relief and speed healing. Does your pet have chronic arthritis? This new therapy can be used in conjunction with your pets medications even provide enough relief to help reduce the amount of medications your pet is prescribed for comfort.

How does it work? Laser Therapy stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body and absorbed by the injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism. This results in relief from pain, increased circulation, reduced inflammation, and acceleration of the healing process.
What can my pet expect during a laser therapy treatment session? Simply put, it provides relief. As the laser is administered, your pet will relax and enjoy the treatment. The almost immediate relief of pain will allow your pet to be comfortable and any anxiety that your pet initially experiences will dissipate.

Circling multiple times before lying down
Whining, groaning or other vocalizations
