Laser Therapy for Pets
Van Meter Veterinary Clinic offers laser therapy for pets.
Laser therapy is highly safe and effective and is used to treat chronic and acute conditions. It uses an intense beam of laser light directed to affected tissues to deeply penetrate the tissue to reduce pain, increase blood flow, decrease inflammation, and promote healing. Treatments are a safe and relaxing experience for pets. During the procedure, the warmth of the laser provides pain relief and comfort, and many pets become so relaxed they even fall asleep!
Therapy laser has been successful in treating acute conditions such as wounds, allergies, and post-surgical pain relief. Degenerative joint disease, periodontal disease, arthritis, and hip dysplasia are some of the chronic conditions that see improvement when treated with therapeutic laser.
Treatment protocols are unique to each patient and condition and will vary in time and complexity. In general, most pets experience an improvement in their condition within the first few treatments. Therapy laser can also be used to enhance other treatment plans recommended by our veterinarians. To learn more about our therapy laser service, please call our office.
