Valley Animal Hospital, LLC Cold Laser Therapy
All types of pets, including exotic animals, may suffer from pain, inflammation, nerve damage, and chronic discomfort related to injuries or illnesses. Fortunately, many of the same non-invasive, drug-free therapies that work on humans also work on animals. Our Veterinary team here at Valley Animal Hospital, LLC employs cold laser therapy.
Cold Laser Therapy: Accelerated Healing and Anti-Inflammatory Effects
Cold laser therapy represents a state-of-the-art, high-tech approach to natural healing and pain relief. Low-level laser energy passes through the skin to warm and heal the tissues underneath. The energy increases blood flow to injured or inflamed tissues, reducing the inflammation and associated pain. It also raises the production of ATP, a cellular fuel source, allowing tissues to repair themselves faster. Dr. Susan Burnett may prescribe this therapy for arthritis, muscle strain, nerve damage, fractures, back pain, and other common problems in exotic pets.
What to Expect From These Treatment Sessions
Animals tolerate cold laser therapy with ease. Cold laser therapy does not require shaving or other preparations. Cold laser therapy may make your pet feel more comfortable and relaxed almost immediately. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve the best results over time.
