We at Monticello Animal Hospital would like to introduce you to a new therapy—The Class 4 Laser that will be offered to help heal your pets. So what is laser therapy? This is a surgery-free, drug-free, noninvasive treatment that will help reduce pain, inflammation, and speed up healing. The class 4 deep tissue laser uses a beam of laser light to penetrate tissue without damaging it. Laser energy induces a biological response in the cells called “photo-bio-modulation”, which leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation, and increases healing time. The class 4 laser therapy is an evolving science in veterinary medicine and has been used successfully to aid in the treatment of a growing number of conditions. This is a scientific proven therapy for post surgical pain as well as acute and chronic conditions.
Examples of acute conditions include:
*wounds, allergies, infections, cuts/burns, tooth extractions and pain relief, sprains, strains, fractures and post-surgical healing and pain relief
Examples of chronic conditions include:
*degenerative joint disease, inflammatory bowel disease, periodontal disease, lick granulomas, hip dysplasia, feline acne, tendonitis, arthritis, otitis.
Most treatments take a matter minutes. During that time, your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth while getting extra attention and love. A relaxing and pleasant experience for everyone!
