Laser Therapy for Pets
We understand that many pet owners are hesitant to move forward when they hear that their may need surgery, which is why we proudly offer laser therapy for pets—a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes cold lasers to pass through the skin and treat underlying conditions without the need for incisions or sutures. Specifically, cold lasers have been use to perform just about any imaginable soft tissue procedure, including mouth and throat procedures, as an alternative to more invasive surgeries.
We're proud to offer cold laser therapy right here in our office, and our staff is well trained in the proper use of this state-of-the-art technology.
Benefits of Laser Therapy
There are numerous benefits of using laser therapy as an alternative to other pet surgical procedures. For starters, because cold lasers can be used to stimulate circulation, ensure proper drainage, and even regenerate cells, there is no need for large incisions or other invasive surgical techniques. As a result, your pet's surgical site heals more quickly and with less risk of side effects.
Furthermore, your pet is able to heal more comfortably than would be the case with a more traditional surgical procedure. This is primarily due to the fact that the cold laser actually seals nerve endings as it cuts, which means your pet has significantly less pain when he or she comes out of anesthesia following the procedure's completion.
In some cases, laser therapy can even be used to negate the need to put your pet under general anesthesia. For example, smaller tumors can sometimes be removed by placing your pet under local anesthesia using laser therapy, which further reduces the risks of complications.
While not all procedures and be performed using our cold lasers, we will explore the option whenever possible. As you can see, there are many ways in which your pet could benefit by having a cold laser procedure done. And as a result of the minimized risk involved, you can also enjoy greater peace of mind and lower stress levels as you prepare to bring your pet in for the procedure.
