We are very excited to have added laser therapy to our practice. It’s a modern and effective healing treatment and continues our efforts to stay on the cutting-edge of veterinary medicine in Toronto.
Laser therapy’s goal is to improve the life quality of our patients with a non-invasive treatment. It offers:
- Reduced inflammation
- Faster recovery from acute injuries or wounds
- Faster healing and scar tissue reduction after injury or surgery
- Reduced joint and muscle pain
- Increased joint flexibility
- Reduced arthritis symptoms
Laser therapy is a non-invasive procedure that uses light to stimulate cell regeneration and to increase blood circulation. Laser therapy treats the surface of the skin using a light beam that travels at a certain frequency, generating warmth and penetrating a pet’s tissue.
It can be combined with other treatments, medication and can be part of a multimodal tailored-approach to therapy. It effectively treats patients that suffer from:
- Acute and Chronic Pain
- Tendonitis (Tendinitis) and Soft Tissue Inflammation
- Back Injuries
- IVDD and Neurogenic pain
- Gingivostomatitis (mouth)
- Postoperative Orthopedics and other surgeries
- Wound Healing (cuts/bites)
Pets with chronic conditions need customized schedules and patients may receive weekly or biweekly treatment sessions as needed.
Some people worry that their pets won’t tolerate laser therapy. However, most pets find it relaxing and enjoy it very much. They also enjoy feeling much better once they finish their treatment. It takes only a few minutes, and they will feel almost immediate improvement.
Pet parents enjoy the fact that we don’t have to shave their pets before treatment. Sedation is not necessary, so treatment can be broken up into multiple short sessions. Pet parents are pleased when they see their pets become more mobile and more like themselves as they start to feel better.
