Keeping pets healthy and happy is always foremost in the minds of their owners. Seeing them in pain from injury or illness can be a painful experience. Many people may not realize that they could find relief for their companion’s condition by applying laser pet therapy.
Safe and Effective
MuraBella Animal Hospital provides laser therapy to pets for a variety of conditions. We render the highest level of care and always put the welfare of your companion at the top of our priority list.
How Laser Therapy Works
Our facility uses the Companion Class IV Laser, which delivers light energy in specific doses to affected areas of your pet’s body. The light encourages cellular changes which can reduce inflammation in the area and lower pain transmission. Cells needed for healing receive a jump-start to start repairing damaged areas of the body.
- Conditions Responsive to Laser Therapy
- Wounds healing from surgery
- Wounds healing from trauma
- Sprains and strains
- Lick granuloma
- Nodular lesions on the feet
- Chronic pain management
Pet laser therapy can also decrease the formation of scar tissue, improve nerve functions, and help with immunoregulation.
The Laser Therapy Experience for Pets
We place your pet in a comfortable position on a table or other surface covered in padding or blankets. You can feel free to hold your pet while they undergo laser therapy. Both humans and animals alike are required to wear goggles during the procedure to protect their retinas.
Duration of Laser Therapy Treatment
The length of a laser therapy session depends on the severity of the issue receiving treatment. Some conditions only require one visit, while other conditions might require several sessions until the doctor is satisfied that the problem has resolved to their satisfaction.
