Park Centre is proud to be one of the first veterinary hospitals in the area to offer the FDA approved class IV Companion laser for pain relief and wound care. Human medical doctors have been using laser therapy for some time, but only recently has this technology become available to veterinarians.
Veterinary Laser Therapy provides a sterile, pain-free, non-invasive, drug-free pain relief treatment for a variety of conditions such as acute injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions, numerous dermatological problems, and pain.
Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your companion will benefit from this revolutionary new approach to Veterinary medicine. Veterinary Laser Therapy is the only course of treatment that actually stimulates the body to heal from within.
Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body and absorbed by the injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism. The result is increased circulation from the body, an anti-inflammatory reaction, relief from pain and an acceleration of the healing process.
What should I expect during a Veterinary Laser Therapy treatment session for my pet?
Simply put, Veterinary Laser Therapy provides relief from pain. As the laser is administered, your pet will relax and have an experience similar to a good massage. Relief is almost immediate in most cases, making your pet more comfortable, without experiencing sustained anxiety or trauma.
Veterinary Laser Therapy delivers light energy to the tissues of the body, which relieves inflammation, increases blood supply and nutritional elements to the affected tissues while also reducing swelling and pain.
Veterinary Laser Therapy is particularly effective in the treatment of arthritis in older pets, acute back injuries, post-surgical therapy and is used on fresh or infected wounds to speed up the healing process.
Angry felines may start to purr and many canines will actually fall asleep during their therapy session. Pain relief is provided in just a few minutes of therapy, improving the quality of life for your best friend.
Treatments take just a few minutes for each inflamed area. It is a pleasant sensation and most pets experience pain relief in 24 hours or less. Chronic arthritis cases are typically treated three times weekly for 2 weeks. Treatments then can be repeated at 1 or 2 month intervals or as needed.
