Heights Veterinary Clinic is Proud to Offer Laser Therapy Treatment!
Our animal clinic is proud to offer our pets Laser Therapy, which is used to treat a variety of conditions and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatments.
How does it work?
Laser therapy stimulates the body to heal naturally from within. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body in 3-to-8 minute increments and are then absorbed by injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism. This results in relief from pain, increased circulation, reduced inflammation, and an acceleration of the overall healing process. Your pet can immediately benefit from this innovative approach to treating pain. Both pets and veterinarians agree that Laser Therapy is the future of veterinary care!
Applications for Laser Therapy include:
- Treatment of arthritis, degenerative joint disease, or hip dysplasia
- General pain management (sprains, strains, and stiffness)
- Post-surgery pain (spays, neuters, declaws, and other surgeries)
- Skin problems (hot spots, lick granulomas, infections)
- Dental procedures
- Fractures and wounds (bites, abrasions, and lesions)
- Ear infections
Our animal clinic’s Laser Therapy treatment is non-invasive, pain-free, drug-free, and does not require surgery!
