Laser therapy is a great treatment tool for many common pet ailments such as inflammation. Many pets who suffer from aging, certain traumatic injuries, and a variety of other health and pain management problems show faster comfort and healing when receiving laser therapy. At Bluestar Pet Hospital in St. Johns, laser therapy provides pet owners safe treatment additions and alternatives for many of these common ailments that are non-invasive and not traumatic. Watch our video to see an explanation of laser therapy from one of our St. Johns veterinarians.
What is Laser Therapy for Pets?
Just as laser therapy has been used to help many humans avoid “going under the knife,” so can it be used to spare your pets from the same fate. Laser therapy offers the promise of low-level risks with few adverse reactions when performed according to treatment specifications. The greatest risk of laser therapy is to the eyes of those performing the treatment and pets without the appropriate protective eyewear. Luckily, as you can see in our video, we always provide pets and require our staff to wear all personal protective equipment to safely perform laser therapy.
Why Consider Laser Therapy for Your Pet?
Laser therapy offers a safe, highly effective treatment for many common pet ailments and conditions with few risks to the pet. The most important benefit of this type of treatment is that the laser offers a precise and focused beam of light that doesn’t affect tissue surrounding the injured or damaged area, making it a highly specific form of treatment for pets.
What Conditions Can Laser Therapy Treat?
Many conditions can be effectively treated with the use of laser therapy. It is especially effective for treating all types of inflammation by improving blood circulation in certain areas of the animal’s body as well as treating the following conditions:
