Killearn Animal Hospital is now excited to offer Companion Laser Therapy! Laser therapy is a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free treatment for a variety of conditions, and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatment protocols.
Laser therapy stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the affected area for approximately 3 to 8 minutes and are absorbed by the injured cells. The stimulated cells respond with a higher rate of metabolism, resulting in pain relief, increased circulation, reduced inflammation, and an acceleration of the healing process.
Relief and/or improvement is often noticed within hours depending upon the condition being treated. 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. Applications for laser therapy include:
