The veterinarians at Belle Chasse Veterinary Clinic continually strive to offer the safest and most effective innovations in veterinary medicine, and our new laser therapy meets both of these criteria. Laser therapy is a painless and drug-free tool that successfully treats many common conditions seen at our clinic.
Laser light has been successfully used in both human and veterinary medicine for many years. Laser therapy emits light energy which is absorbed in the tissue and cells of your pet. When cells are stimulated using laser energy, adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is produced, which aids in the rebuilding of healthy cells.
What conditions can be treated with a therapy laser?
There are many applications and conditions which can be positively affected using laser therapy. Cuts and abrasions can heal much faster when laser light is applied; pain associated with osteoarthritis and other age-related pain can be relieved; fractures can heal faster using laser light; and certain neurological conditions can be treated with laser therapy.
If your pet is suffering from a painful condition and you would like to know if laser therapy may be right for your pet, please contact our clinic for a consultation.
