Laser treatment is a non-invasive way of reducing pain, inflammation and speeding up the healing process.
The laser itself is delivered via a handpiece that is used over the affected area. Lots of pets find it very soothing as it produces a warm sensation and also has a massage effect when in contact with the body.
Laser treatment is scientifically proven to reduce pain after surgery and for both acute and chronic conditions.
It can be used for:
- Post dental pain relief
- Fractures, sprains etc
- Post-surgery pain relief and to speed up healing process
- Degenerative joint disease
- IBD (inflammatory bowel disease)
- Hip dysplasia
- Feline acne
- Lick granulomas
- Periodontal disease
Treatment sessions are tailored to the individual patient, so sessions will vary depending on the complexity of your pets condition.
If your pet is having hydrotherapy sessions, a laser treatment over the affected area beforehand can enhance the effects of the hydrotherapy sessions. Add to this the benefits with physiotherapy and we have a fantastic multi-disciplinary approach.
Laser treatment can also be used alongside other treatment options. Contact your local Calder Vets branch for more information.
