Pet Laser Therapy in Wilmington
If your pet is experiencing pain or symptoms of illness, pet laser therapy may help. Laser therapy is a pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment that uses low-level lasers to stimulate the body’s natural healing ability. The laser creates a specific wavelength of light that induces the body to release endorphins and stimulates injured cells to heal. With laser therapy, the results are immediate, and there are no dangerous side effects. Laser therapy can be used to:
- Reduce pain and promote healing after surgery or injury
- Manage a variety of chronic and acute conditions
- Reduce inflammation
- Increase joint mobility
- Reduce aches and pains in older pets
What Conditions Can Pet Laser Therapy Treat?
Before receiving laser treatment, our veterinarian will evaluate your pet and perform any necessary diagnostic testing. Once the initial assessment is complete, the doctor will decide on a course of treatment and a maintenance protocol for future treatments. Some of the ailments laser therapy can treat include:
- Acute and chronic injuries
- Arthritis, sprains, and strains
- Neurological conditions
- Dermatological problems
About the Treatment Session
Our highly skilled technicians will perform the laser therapy treatment, and you are welcome to remain with your pet throughout. The treatments are quick, usually lasting just a few minutes. During the procedure, we will closely monitor your pet to ensure his comfort. After the therapy is completed, most pets feel great. We’ve found that response rates in pets who receive laser therapy is cumulative, and 95% will show a response after three to five treatments. Some animals require several treatments to experience optimum healing, so we will work with you to determine the best treatment schedule for you and your pet.
When appropriate, laser therapy can be used as a complement to other forms of therapy, including chiropractic, massage, and physical therapy. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, or simply aging, laser therapy can help. We are happy to answer any questions, provide you with more information about Class IV laser therapy, and discuss the best course of treatment for your pet.
