Laser Therapy

Does your pet suffer from chronic pain? Has a recent surgery or injury slowed your normally active companion down?

At Falls Village Veterinary Hospital, we believe that when it comes to caring for your cherished companion, you should have as many choices as possible. That’s why we’re pleased to offer laser therapy as part of our comprehensive suite of services. The laser uses painless waves of light to treat areas of the body that are experiencing pain or have suffered trauma. This triggers a natural response without the need for medication or other invasive measures. As a result, your four-legged friend can enjoy decreased pain, enhanced mobility and shorter recovery periods.

 

What is veterinary laser therapy?

Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive form of treatment which stimulates the body’s natural healing and pain control response. It can be used as a standalone therapy or as a complement to other treatment methods. Using a small, handheld device, low level laser light is applied to the area in question, stimulating normal cellular function. This results in faster wound healing and enhanced pain relief. Best of all, because laser therapy requires no medication or surgery, there are no harmful side effects.

 

What can laser therapy treat?

Laser therapy can be used to address a broad spectrum of conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Disc Disease
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Cranial Cruciate Ligament
  • Dental Problems
  • Chronic Pain and Inflammation
  • Dermatological Conditions
  • Burns and Wounds
  • Lick Granulomas
  • Post-Orthopedic Surgical Recovery

 

How many sessions will my pet need?

Because every animal is different, their response to laser therapy is equally unique. Depending on your companion’s specific condition, its severity and a number of other determining factors, treatment strategies will vary. For some animals, positive results can be seen after just one session. Others may require a more long-term strategy to achieve the desired outcome. We will provide you with an individual treatment recommendation once we’ve had the opportunity to evaluate your pet’s situation.

Sassy has recently begun laser treatments and her family could not be more pleased with the results:

Sassy“Sassy has hip dysplasia and bad arthritis in her hips. She could not tolerate any NSAIDs. She had stopped playing and running, spending more and more time sleeping. Her back legs started to occasionally collapse underneath her when she walked and sometimes when she just stood. I contacted Dr. Sherrod to see what could be done. She suggested we try the laser treatment. By the second laser treatment, Sassy was running and playing. After the third treatment Sassy was able to jump up on the sofa, something she couldn’t do for a year or so. She’s a happy, much more active dog again. I recommend this for any dog who’s slowed down and has pain. It’s affordable, there are no negative side effects and it works!! Amazing transformation in just a few sessions.”
