Laser Therapy

We are pleased to announce that we now offer this service to all of our patients!


Laser therapy is a noninvasive treatment designed to reduce pain and inflammation, and to speed healing. This treatment
is quickly becoming standard of care in both human and veterinary medicine. Our staff members administer laser therapy
via a handpiece that emits this therapeutic infrared light in a fast, drug-free, and soothing treatment. The therapeutic infrared light targets the mitochondria in damaged cells and stimulates them to regenerate and
stimulates them to return to optimal function.

Laser therapy treatments are fast and pain-free, making them well-tolerated by most pets. There is no clipping or shaving
required for the treatment area. Treatments take approximately 5 – 10 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area and the condition being treated.

Laser therapy is an effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions including:
• Wounds
• Arthritis
• Skin Conditions
• Pain & Inflammation
• Pain Relief
• Post-Operative Recovery
• Rehabilitation
• Geriatric Care
• Lick Granulomas
• Otitis
• Dental Conditions
