Laser therapy is a form of treatment used for both acute and chronic concerns. Laser therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free and non-invasive treatment to reduce pain and inflammation while increasing the speed of healing.
What is therapeutic laser therapy for dogs and what are the benefits?
Therapeutic laser therapy can be used for acute conditions, such as: • Wounds • Allergies • Infections • Cuts/bites • Inflammation • Sprains/strains/fractures • Post-surgical healing and pain relief
Therapeutic laser therapy can also be used for chronic conditions, such as: • Degenerative joint disease, • Inflammatory bowel disease, • Periodontal disease, • Lick granulomas, • Hip dysplasia, • Feline acne, • Tendonitis, • Arthritis, • Otitis
Are lasers dangerous for dogs and are there any side effects?
Properly administered, laser therapy is very safe. The laser light is delivered through a non-invasive handpiece to treat the affected area. Your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth. Each treatment generally takes several minutes only.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
