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.
Laser treatment can also be used alongside other treatment options. Contact your local Calder Vets branch for more information.
I am writing to let you know pleased I am that Calder Vets decided to invest in a Laser treatment machine.
Sanna, my 14 year old arthritic dog, did the K-Lazer trial that you ran last Summer, and after just 5 sessions the difference was incredible, she was running with my younger dogs like a pup (they didn't know what had hit them). She went straight into the river, swam for twenty minutes and ran home. It was quite amazing.
There was a gap between the trial and Calder investing in a machine, and during this period I had to give Sanna more pain relief. However, since you bought the machine, and after just 9 sessions Sanna is beginning to pick up again, of course Winter and damp air hasn't helped, but she is coming for longish evening walks with the other dogs, so the result is still very positive.
The great thing about Laser treatment is that Sanna no longer needs to take Metacam, bad for her kidneys and liver, which worried me a lot, and that the amount of painkiller that I need to give her is a lot less.
Another positive outcome is that Sanna, who gets highly stressed at the vets has actually begun to relax and enjoy the treatment. As you witnessed in a session not so long ago, she almost fell asleep.
I'm just really happy with Laser, as it works. It causes no internal harm to my oldish girl and she doesn't need to take harmful medication.
I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am.
