Cold Laser Therapy
Laser therapy is non-invasive, drug-free, and painless with zero side effects. A cold laser therapy device emits measured pulses of infrared light, which penetrate through the skin and deep into the muscle tissue. The light energy is absorbed into the cells that make up this tissue, causing chemical and physical changes that regenerate cells and repair damaged ones.
Cold laser provides several major benefits for pets struggling daily with chronic pain, surgery recovery, or acute injury:
- Decreases inflammation and swelling
- Increases blood circulation to the affected area and throughout the entire body
- Accelerates healing of bruised and damaged tissue
- Reduces pain
- Increases mobility in patients with stiff, achy joints
- ...and many more!
Our latest laser surgery technology allows us to perform more complex surgeries, like soft palette resections and corrective surgery for stenotic nares.
Laser surgery allows us to provide improved patient care by:
- Decreasing recovery time
- Increasing comfort during recovery process
- Improving post-operation experience
- Benefiting general surgeries (in addition to complex)
