Class IV Therapy Laser
What is Laser Therapy? Laser Therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free, noninvasive treatment to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and speed healing. Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it. Laser energy induces a biological response in the cells called "photo-bio-modulation", which leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation, and increased healing speed. (Mo thinks it's really cool!)
How it Works The laser light is delivered through a noninvasive handpiece to treat the affected area. Your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth. Most treatments take a matter of minutes.
What are the Costs? Treatment protocols are unique to each patient and condition. Therefore, treatments will vary in time complexity and cost. Laser therapy can be used to enhance other treatment plans recommended by your veterinarian.
Laser Therapy has been scientifcally proven to be successful in treating post-surgical pain and many acute conditions such as wounds, allergies, infections, cuts and bites, inflammations, tooth extraction pain relief, sprains, strains and fractures, post-surgical healing and pain relief. It can also help treat chronic conditions like degenerative joint disease, inflammatory bowel disease, periodontal disease, lick granulomas, geriatric care, hip dysplasia, feline acne, tendonitis, arthritis, and much more.
