Soothing Results with Pet Laser Therapy
We’re happy to offer the therapeutic results only pet laser therapy can give at Aloha Animal Hospital in Hanover. Laser therapy has been proven to promote healing and is an effective pain management tool that’s completely drug-free. Also, because the treatment is completely non-invasive and relaxing for your pet, there’s no need to sedate them. The conditions cold laser therapy can treat are endless. By using different wavelengths of light to penetrate your pet’s skin and repair damaged cells, laser therapy can give your loyal companion the relief they’ve been looking for.
Treating with Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is very effective at treating arthritis and inflammation, but it can be effective at treating a wide range of conditions due to how versatile it is. Each individual session will vary in length depending on the condition we’re treating, but they’re generally between three to eight minutes long. The amount of light used in pet laser therapy is determined by your fur-baby’s coat, size, skin and age. Some of the conditions it’s good at treating includes:
- Joint pain
- Ear infections
- Oral infections
- Hot spots
- Lick dermatitis
- Degenerative joint and disc problems
- Bone fractures
- Skin wounds
- Hip dysplasia
Pets are known to become quite relaxed from the soothing warmth of laser therapy sessions. If we were to see what’s happening on the cellular level though, we would see more activity than your pup relaxing. The non-invasive treatment uses cold lasers to stimulate cells where it’s directed at. This in turn increases blood flow and circulation from cell oxidation, and healing is promoted in the treated area. The laser is powerful and can penetrate your pet’s skin deeply to treat injuries and arthritis. When the correct wavelength is used on your pet by our experienced staff, you’ll see an increase in your pet’s energy by how the laser relieves pain and releases endorphins. We work hard for the pets of Hanover and we’re proud to offer pet laser therapy. Please contact us with any questions about this or any of our other services.
