Laser therapy can be used to treat multiple conditions
The benefits of laser therapy are numerous. Different breeds suffer from specific kinds of medical problems, many of which can now be helped using this treatment. Musculoskeletal abnormalities and the swelling dogs experience as a result of back disk problems can be improved greatly with laser therapy. The procedure is so noninvasive that dogs don’t need to be shaved or clipped in preparation for the therapy. In fact, they don’t even require sedation. The ease of this process means your dog can receive laser therapy as often as your veterinarian recommends.
At Complete Pet Care, we offer the latest laser therapy technology that works efficiently and effectively to treat both acute and chronic conditions. Some of the indications that might make your pet a good candidate for therapy include:
- Slowly healing wounds
- Musculoskeletal trauma
- Recent surgery
- Joint disease
- Intervertebral disk disease
- Inflammatory conditions
Laser therapy for dogs and other pets is so widely beneficial, in fact, that the inflammatory conditions it treats include everything from ear infections to nasal problems to hot spots! The therapy fights inflammation by causing vasodilation and by triggering the lymphatic drainage system. The result is a lessening of swelling or inflammation due to any bruising. Laser therapy on dogs with arthritis is commonly performed because of its pain-relieving benefits for the aging pet.
Clinical results especially point to a quicker post-surgical recovery as one of the most effective benefits of the therapy. Recovery time is faster because the laser therapy helps regenerate nerve tissue after surgery. This covers musculoskeletal surgical recovery, such as cruciate ligament repairs, as well as helping incisions heal by themselves. A quicker recovery also means you have to administer less medication to your dog. It’s a win-win.
