Non-invasive Laser Therapy for Your Pet
At Millbrae Pet Hospital, our goal is to ensure your pet’s comfort. One way we accomplish this is by providing laser therapy, a non-invasive treatment to manage different conditions your pet may experience. A modern alternative to drug therapy, laser therapy has been shown to decrease healing times after surgery or injury, as well as reduce overall pain and inflammation.
Laser therapy is a beneficial treatment for many conditions that cats or dogs may experience, including:
- Joint problems
- Oral procedures
- Pain and inflammation
- Skin conditions
- Snake bites
- Wound healing
Laser therapy is a non-invasive procedure that involves the use of an infrared laser light that penetrates deep into the tissues. This light is then absorbed by the cells and converted into chemical energy, which stimulates cell metabolism and increases blood flow. Research has shown that the use of laser therapy improves the health of cells in your pet’s tissues, which helps speed recovery and reduce pain from surgery or injury.
Here at Millbrae Pet Hospital, we use Companion Laser Therapy, a modern treatment system that allows us to deliver laser light accurately and painlessly to deeper tissues. This system helps us effectively treat your pet’s conditions, be it recovery from a routine surgery or management of a chronic illness.
To ensure laser therapy is as effective as possible, we individualize treatment for all of our pets. In some cases, one dose of laser therapy may be enough to speed recovery and improve healing. For other conditions, multiple treatment visits may be necessary for a maximal benefit. Our compassionate and experienced veterinarians work closely with you and your pet to ensure that the very best treatment is provided. Whether it’s hip dysplasia or a snake bite, we are committed to your pet’s comfort.
