A Better Means of Pain Management with Pet Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is relatively new in veterinary medicine. At Animal Medical Center in Jonesboro, we believe in staying on top of the latest trends and adjusting our practices so that we’re always offering the best treatments and techniques. Pet laser therapy is one such innovation that allows us to treat pet pain with zero risks of side effects, no invasive measures, and in complete safety for pets of every age.

When We Use Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is useful for just about any situation. In fact, the only time we can’t use laser therapy to treat pain is on cancer patients. Since laser therapy stimulates cell production, it is counter-intuitive to use the treatment on a pet with cancer whose cells are already multiplying rapidly. Otherwise, if your pet is in pain, chances are laser therapy will benefit them.

Common conditions we recommend laser therapy for include:

  • Post-surgical recovery
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Lick granulomas
  • Hot spots
  • Acute injuries
  • Wound healing
  • And more

General Timeline for Treatment

The timeline for your pet’s treatment depends on their condition and their response to treatment. Typically, for post-surgical recovery or wound healing, a pet will only need one or two short sessions to see significant results. Meanwhile, degenerative conditions such as arthritis require multiple, longer sessions in order to achieve and maintain positive results.

Since pet laser therapy is cumulative, long-term treatments generally become more spaced out as time goes on. To learn more about the healing benefits of pet laser therapy, and to discuss a timeline that would suit you and your pet, please schedule an appointment today.
