Laser Therapy and Digital Thermal Imaging

Laser Therapy

What is Laser Therapy?

A surgery-free, drug-free, noninvasive treatment to reducing pain and inflammation also as an aid to speed healing. Laser therapy has been scientifically proven to be successful in treating post-surgical pain and many acute and chronic conditions.

Acute Conditions:

Wounds, Allergies, Infections, Cuts/Bites, Inflammations, Tooth Extraction Pain Relief, Sprains, Strains & Fractures, Post-Surgical Healing & Pain Relief

Chronic Conditions:

Degenerative Joint Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Periodontal Disease, Lick Granulomas, Geriatric Care, Hip Dysplasia, Feline Acne, Tendonitis, Arthritis and Otitis

Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy...            

Uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it.  Laser energy induces a biological response in the cells called "photo-bio-modulation", which leads to the reducing of pain and inflammation which increases healing time.


How Does It Work?

The laser light is delivered through a noninvasive handpiece to treat the affected area(s).  Your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth.  Most treatments take a matter of minutes!


What are the Costs?

Treatment protocols are unique to each patient and condition.  Therefore, treatments will vary in time, complexity, and costs.  Laser therapy can be used to enhance other treatment plans recommended by your veterinarian.  Packages are available for purchase on long-term therapies.


Digital Thermal Imaging

Why Consider Screening Your Pet?

  • Locate pain and inflammation
  • See a before, during and after treatment results
  • Discover secondary areas not seen by the naked eye
  • Improve outcomes with more precise targeted treatment of areas
  • Our pets can't tell us where it hurts

How It Works

Digital Thermal Imaging do not depict temperature but measure radiated energy from the targeted tissue. The difference in radiated energy can be measured by temperature and color associated with change. Hotter areas depict inflammation and Cooler areas lack of circulation.
