Laser therapy is a recent innovation in veterinary medicine, and this painless, drug-free modality is available for your pet companion at Town and Country Veterinary Clinic. Laser therapy uses light energy which is absorbed in the tissue and cells of a pet in treatment. When cells are stimulated using laser energy, adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is produced, which aids in the rebuilding of healthy cells.
Laser therapy can treat many wounds much faster than healing without this method. For example, incisions made during surgical procedures heal more quickly when lasers are used in the area. Injuries such as a bite from another animal, lick granulomas, and even fractures can be treated effectively with the therapy laser at Town and Country Veterinary Clinic. Pain management is another excellent application of our therapy laser. In the past, conditions such as osteoarthritis could only be treated with the use of medications such as NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). Today, however, laser therapy is an excellent drug-free alternative that may provide relief without the use of medication.
Dr. Pete spends many hours at lectures and educational events each year to ensure Town and Country Veterinary Clinic offers the safest and most effective treatments for our valued clients, and has determined that laser therapy meets these criteria. If your pet has a wound or painful condition and you would like to know if laser therapy would benefit them, call one of our compassionate team members and schedule an appointment today!
