Heal Your Pet with Laser Therapy
Garden City Veterinary Care is excited to offer its clients Companion Laser Therapy. Laser therapy provides a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of conditions and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatment protocols. Relief and/or improvement is often noticed within hours depending on the condition and your pet’s unique health status. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your companion can benefit from this innovative approach to treating pain.
What is it?
Laser therapy is a drug-free, surgery-free, noninvasive treatment to that reduces pain, reduces inflammation and speeds healing.
How Does it Work?
Laser therapy stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body for about 3 to 8 minutes per area and are absorbed by the injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism. Your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth. This results in relief from pain, increased circulation, reduced inflammation, and an acceleration of the healing process.
Applications for laser therapy include:
Treatment of arthritis, degenerative joint disease, or hip dysplasia
General pain management (sprains, strains, and stiffness)
Post-surgery pain (spays, neuters, declaws, and other surgeries)
Skin problems (hot spots, lick granulomas, infections)
Fractures and wounds (bites, abrasions, burns, and lesions)
