Claws & Paws Veterinary Hospital® now has a Class IV Therapeutic Laser! Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation, and decreased swelling. It causes bio-stimulation of tissues to increase healing.
Clinical studies and real-world use over several decades have proven that laser therapy alleviates pain and inflammation, reduces swelling, stimulates nerve regeneration, and promotes cells involved in tissue repair.
Deep, soothing laser therapy provides a drug-free option for enhanced patient care. It is extremely well tolerated by pets with no known side effects. Laser can also decrease the need for surgery and medication. There is no need for sedation or clipping. It is quick to administer and owners can be present.
Numerous studies show that Laser Therapy can help with a wide variety of patient conditions such as/and not limited to:
Edema and Congestion
Neck and Back Pain
Post-Orthopedic Surgical Recovery
Chronic Pain and Lameness
Anal Gland Infections
Lick Granulomas/Interdigital Dermatitis
