Laser Therapy

What if there was a way that you could manage your pet’s pain, help them recover faster from surgery or injury, and generally help them live a happier more comfortable life – all without the use of any medication or surgery? There is! Veterinary laser therapy offers all of this and much more in a non-invasive, drug-free and painless manner. At Western Branch Veterinary Hospital, we are committed to staying on top of all the latest advancements in animal health care. That’s why we’re pleased to offer laser therapy as an additional treatment option to further support the health and wellness of our patients.

What is laser therapy?

This innovative technology involves the use of a small, handheld device which emits a high intensity beam of light. That light – or laser – painlessly penetrates problem areas, triggering the body’s natural healing mechanisms to reduce pain and inflammation, improve mobility and speed the recovery process following surgery or injury.

What can laser therapy be used to treat?

There seem to be new uses for the therapeutic laser in veterinary medicine being discovered almost daily, however, at this time we are able to harness this advanced technology to treat and manage any of the following ailments:

  • Acute and Chronic Pain
  • Arthritis
  • Back Pain
  • Sprains and Strains

How many treatments will my pet need?

Every animal is different, as is the condition and severity that is being treated. The doctor will examine your pet and evaluate his or her unique needs before providing a customized treatment recommendation.
