Bayshore Animal Hospital & Avian Practice offers customizable in-house laser therapy to promote faster healing and alleviate pain for animals recovering from surgery or those suffering from certain chronic (ongoing) or acute (sudden onset) conditions. Clinical studies have proven that cold laser (or low-level laser) therapy alleviates pain and inflammation, reduces swelling, repairs tissues, and accelerates the body’s natural healing process by stimulating nerve and cell regeneration.
Laser therapy is drug-free, noninvasive, fast, and comfortable for your pet. It is safe and effective with no known side-effects. And when appropriate, laser therapy can be used in conjunction with other treatment plans.
Conditions that could benefit from laser therapy include:
- Acute conditions
- Acute and chronic ear infections
- Tooth extractions
- Sprains, strains, and fractures
- Post-surgical healing/pain relief
- Chronic conditions
- Degenerative joint disease
- Lick granulomas
Your pet’s treatment schedule will vary depending on his or her condition and needs. If your pet requires multiple treatments with the laser, we will work with you to create a treatment schedule that both you and your pet are comfortable with.
Please feel free to call us with any questions you might have and to find out if laser therapy may be right for your pet.
