The Latest Veterinary Technology: Pet Laser Therapy
Our commitment to the best veterinary medical care means we strive to be on the front end of the latest technology. While pet laser therapy has been in use for some years in the veterinary community, our animal hospital is one of very few to offer this service in our area. At Roswell Veterinary Associates, your pet can benefit from this soothing treatment once, twice, or for a whole series, depending on their condition.
How it Works and What it Treats
Therapeutic lasers work by emitting laser light energy into the affected area which stimulates the cells to be more active. This increased production speeds up the healing process as cells repair damaged tissue, quell inflammation, and ease pain. Pets with a range of conditions can benefit from this therapy. Pet laser therapy can help treat:
Wounds or Traumatic Injuries
Intervertebral Disc Disease
And Many Other Chronic Conditions
Depending on your pet’s condition and its severity, they may require varying frequencies of treatment. Some may benefit from only a single application of the laser while others with serious, chronic conditions, such as arthritis in older pets, need regular sessions to reap the most benefits.
After a surgical procedure, pet laser therapy helps speed up the healing process. That's why each of our surgical cases receives laser treatment during recovery. All it takes is one single application to have an effect on the incision site. This not only cuts down on your pet’s recovery time but also provides pain management, too.
When your pet undergoes surgery, pain management typically comes before, during, and after the procedure to ensure their maximum comfort. However, for pets with compromised livers, traditional pain management may not be possible. A series of therapeutic laser sessions offers your pet the comfort they need.
