Northwest Neighborhood Veterinary Hospital is proud to announce we have added laser therapy to our expanding list of veterinary services! Laser therapy is an innovative technique used to treat acute and chronic injuries in pets. This non-invasive and painless treatment stimulates cell regeneration by increasing blood flow to the targeted area, accelerating the healing process following surgery, alleviating joint pain and helping treat degenerative diseases.
The process generally takes between 5-10 minutes, with the majority of patients seeing positive effects after 3-5 treatments. Each treatment continues to relieve pain and fight inflammation for up to 24 hours following the session.
Common Applications of Laser Therapy
- Arthritis and degenerative joint disease
- Musculoskeletal injuries
- Neuromuscular disease
- Hip dysplasia
- Post-surgical incisions and soft-tissue trauma
Our hospital staff has undergone extensive certification training to incorporate this new technology and are pleased to finally be able to offer it to our patients. Please ask your veterinarian for more information about laser therapy and its benefits!
