Class IV Laser Therapy

Animals can suffer from many of the same painful and debilitating medical conditions that humans can, including arthritis and other degenerative conditions. As a loving pet owner, you never want to see your animal companion in pain – and neither do we! That’s why we’re proud to offer Class IV Laser therapy as part of our comprehensive line of pet care services. This cutting edge technology has been proven to provide relief from pain and discomfort as well as improve mobility and range of motion to help your pet live a more comfortable life.

Laser Therapy at-a-glance

  • Laser therapy treatment helps reduce pain and inflammation and enhances tissue healing—both in hard and soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments, and even bones
  • It increases oxygenation of tissues and allows injured or damaged cells to absorb photons of light, which speeds healing. Class 4 laser therapy can be effectively combined with a number of other treatment modalities
  • Laser therapy can be helpful for acute injuries, such as strains, sprains, and shoulder injuries; repetitive-use injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome; traumatic injuries, and chronic issues, such as frozen shoulder and arthritis
  • Laser therapy is also used by some veterinarians to treat arthritic conditions, hip dysplasia, or intervertebral disc disease in dachshunds, for example

Benefits of Laser Therapy

  • No drug use
  • Non-surgical
  • Fewer side effects
  • Speeds the healing process of injuries
  • Fast and convenient
  • Quick results (typically within 12-24 hours following treatment)
  • Can be combined with medication and other forms of treatment

Uses of Laser Therapy

The purpose of laser therapy is to help reduce the pain an animal is experiencing due to injury or illness. The pain most often addressed through this technology is that which affects the joints or muscles. Some of the conditions for which laser therapy is most commonly used include:

  • Back or joint pain
  • Relief from the pain and stiffness of arthritis
  • Wound healing, following surgery or injury
  • Non-invasive recovery assistance following orthopedic surgery or injuries to the musculoskeletal system
  • Chronic wounds
  • Tendinopathies
  • Muscle strains

It’s important to note that laser therapy treatments are cumulative in nature, which means results will typically improve over time. The length and frequency of treatments will vary based on your pet’s condition and overall health. Dr. Anderson will recommend a treatment plan specific to your pet’s condition.
