Kirkwood Animal Hospital is proud to be offering Therapeutic Laser treatments for our patients!
Introducing the Companion Animal Laser – The latest technology for the health of your pet! Deep penetrating light allows relief of pain through release of endorphins and stimulates injured cells to heal faster. Simply put, it provides relief!
The Therapeutic Laser allows your pet to heal faster after surgery or any traumatic injury. It eases pain and improves mobility without the use of pharmaceuticals and surgery. Laser therapy helps provide your geriatric animal relief of aches and pains and allows for more freedom and improved quality of life. The Therapeutic Laser helps provide pain relief and increases healing in everyday disorders such as lick granulomas and chronic ear infections. Laser therapy provides a sterile, pain-free, surgery- free, drug-free treatment, which is used to treat a variety of injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions, numerous dermatological problems, and pain.
Laser therapy is the only course of treatment that actually 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 increased circulation from the body, an anti-inflammatory reaction, relief from pain and an acceleration of the healing process.
Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, he or she will benefit from this revolutionary new approach to veterinary medicine.
What to expect:
- The WORK-UP – Our veterinarians may recommend basic testing to ensure that there are no contra-indications to using the laser. This may include, but is not limited to a full exam, complete blood testing, and x-rays.
- The treatment plan – after the work-up our veterinarians will design a treatment plan for you pet based on their condition, number of sites to be treated. This plan will be monitored and modified based on your pet’s response to treatment.
