Laser Therapy Reduces Pain and Speeds Healing

A Plus Animal Hospital is excited to offer our clients Companion Laser Therapy. Laser therapy provides a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of conditions and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatment protocols.

The laser can be used for:
– Treatment of arthritis, degenerative joint disease, or hip dysplasia
– General pain management (sprains, strains, and stiffness)
– Post-surgical pain (spays, neuters, declaws, and other surgeries)
– Skin problems (hot spots, lick granulomas, infections)
– Dental procedures
– Fractures and wounds (bites, abrasions, burns, and lesions)
– Ear infections

Laser therapy stimulates the body to heal 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 an acceleration of the healing process. Simply put, it provides relief – as the laser is administered, your pet will relax and enjoy the treatment.
