Laser Therapy and Digital Thermal Imaging

Laser Therapy

What is Laser Therapy?                                    

A surgery-free, drug-free, noninvasive treatment which reduces pain and inflammation as well as decreasing healing time. Laser therapy has been scientifically proven to be successful in treating post-surgical pain as well as many acute and chronic conditions.

Acute Conditions:

Wounds, allergies, infections, inflammatory conditions, dental procedural pain, sprains, strains, fractures as well as post-surgical healing & pain relief

Chronic Conditions:

Degenerative joint disease (arthritis), inflammatory bowel disease, periodontal disease, lick granulomas, hip dysplasia, feline acne, tendonitis and otitis

Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy...            

Uses a beam of laser light to penetrate farther into diseased tissue without damaging it.  Laser energy induces a biological response in the cells called "photo-bio-modulation", which leads to the reduction of pain and inflammation which decreases healing time.

How Does It Work?

The laser light is delivered through a noninvasive handpiece to treat the affected area(s).  Your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth.  Most treatments take a matter of minutes!

What are the Costs?

Treatment protocols are unique to each patient and condition.  Remember, laser therapy is medication.  Each different disease requires different doses of laser energy for be effective.  Laser therapy can be used to enhance other treatment plans recommended by your veterinarian.  Packages are available for purchase to effectively treat long-term.

Digital Thermal Imaging

Why Consider Screening Your Pet?

  • Locate pain and inflammation
  • See a before, during, and after treatment results
  • Discover secondary areas not seen by the naked eye
  • Improve outcomes with more precise targeted treatment of areas
  • Our pets can't tell us where it hurts, this allows us to see where inflammation and likely pain exist

How It Works

Digital Thermal Imaging does not depict temperature but measures radiated energy from the targeted tissue(just because the image is "red" does not mean it is 90 degrees). The difference in radiated energy can be measured by temperature and color associated with change. Hotter areas depict inflammation and cooler areas lack of circulation.
