Is laser therapy beneficial for my pet?
Often called low-level laser therapy, cold laser therapy or Class IV laser therapy, is a relatively new concept that is being used by more veterinarians to treat pets with arthritis, tendon or soft tissue injuries and to promote wound healing.
Laser therapy can treat:
- Acute and chronic injuries
- Sprains and strains
- Cuts/ Bites
- Hip Dysplasia
- Lick Granulomas
- Tooth Extraction Pain Relief
- Post-Surgical Healing / Pain Relief
- Degenerative Joint Disease
- Swelling due to back disc problems
- Muscular-skeletal abnormalities
- It also helps to regenerate nerve tissue after surgery
Lasers are nothing more than a beam of light that travels at a certain frequency that allows the laser to generate heat and penetrate tissue. Some Class IV or cold lasers are programmable to a range of frequencies in order to treat many different types of problems in dogs. Bell Veterinary Clinic has a dual wave therapy laser for a wider range of benefits for pets. Call us at 810 678 3938 to schedule a session for your pet.
Pets find laser therapy relaxing and tend to enjoy the treatment
The good news about laser therapy for dogs and cats is there’s no need to shave or clip the area to be treated and the pet doesn’t need to be sedated during the process. That means that treatment can be applied multiple times a day or a number of times per week
Laser therapy improves the quality of a pet’s life as well as the life of its owner, because if your pet is happy, you are happy
