Laser Therapy Reduces Pain and Speeds Healing
Stapleton Veterinary Hospital is excited to offer our 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 treatments. Relief and/or improvement is often noticed within hours depending on the condition and your pet's response.
What can we use the laser for?
- 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)
- Dental procedures
- Fractures and wounds (bites, abrasions, and lesions)
- Ear infections
How does it work?
Laser therapy stimulates the body to heal from within using non-thermal photons of light.
What can my pet expect during a laser therapy treatment session?
Simply put, it provides relief. Most pets thoroughly enjoy the treatment. They sometimes even fall asleep or start to purr!
