At Caring Hands Animal Hospital we strive to combine the best traditional and alternative medical therapies to improve the health of your loved ones.
Therapeutic Laser Therapy, or cold laser therapy, is just one of these ways we can help treat a variety of diseases and symptoms. This laser is different from our cutting laser that we utilize in surgery. Many athletes are familiar with laser therapy, as this is also used in human medicine.
What’s so great about laser therapy? Laser therapy works in a number of ways to heal and manage pain. It increases the release of endorphins, decreases inflammation and edema, and it restores metabolic function. This means that your pet heals more quickly, can have fewer complications if used after surgery, and feel better!
This therapy has successfully aided in the treatment of arthritis, hip dysplasia, bladder inflammation, anal gland infections, ear infections, abscesses, and muscle strains.
Laser therapy is drug-free, non-invasive, and doesn’t require sedation or clipping of the hair! It can be combined with other traditional therapies, including pain medications and joint supplements. It helps your pet get back on their feet and get back to normal play faster and restores quality of life to otherwise painful pets!
