We are proud to offer Laser Therapy- a new way to treat pain!

Is your pet suffering from chronic arthritis?  Laser therapy has been widely utilized in Europe to treat arthritis and other conditions since the 1970’s.  Now, after FDA clearance in 2002, it is being used extensively in the United States and has recently become available to veterinarians.

Laser Therapy can decrease pain after injury or surgery and decrease inflammation in conditions such as gingivitis, lick granulomas and ear infections.  It is especially useful to decrease the pain of arthritis in dogs and cats. 
The laser uses specific wavelengths of light to create therapeutic effects, including improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. Most conditions require several treatments for greatest benefit and many patients exhibit greater comfort and mobility within 12 to 24 hours after a laser treatment.  We are proud to be the only area veterinarian offering K-Laser Class IV Laser Therapy treatments.  Contact us if you feel your pet could benefit from this drug free, surgery free, painless treatment.
