Speed Healing and Manage Pain with Laser Therapy
Laser therapy is a well-established technique for pain relief and injury rehabilitation and has been used to treat humans for decades. Laser therapy is safe and effective. A laser beam of light travels at a frequency that allows it to generate gentle heat and penetrate tissue, thereby reducing pain, increasing blood flow, decreasing inflammation, and promoting healing. Laser therapy is a great option for any animal and can be used to treat arthritis, spinal disc problems, sprains, strains, and acute and chronic injuries. It is an ideal treatment to speed healing during post-surgery rehabilitation.
During treatments, pet generally relax and enjoy relief from pain. Some dogs have been known to fall asleep, while cats sometimes purr. The procedure is non-intrusive and fur is not clipped. Eye protection for everyone in the room -- including your pet -- is mandatory, and makes for the perfect photo op. During the therapy session, Dr. Martha, or a veterinary technician, will move the probe over the areas of treatment to assure that the laser is thoroughly dispersed. Typically, effective laser therapy requires multiple treatments.
Lakeside Veterinary Services offers discounted packages of multiple sessions. Please ask about our laser therapy specials.
Dental care is vital to the overall health of any pet. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys and has the potential to seep into your pet’s bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.
