Vetcare’s Therapy Laser and Pet Laser Surgery Options for Dogs and Cats
Vetcare is pleased to offer laser-assisted treatment options for our patients. With multiple applications, laser technology can greatly enhance your pet’s experience at our clinic by allowing for cleaner, easier surgeries and effectively managing pain in a noninvasive manner.
Two kinds of lasers are in use at Vetcare:
Therapeutic Pet Laser
Companion therapy laser can be utilized by our veterinarians to provide pain relief for pets in recovery from an injury or surgery, or those dealing with pain associated with arthritis and other conditions. By applying flashes of infrared light to a specific location on the body, therapeutic laser can stop pain and accelerate healing by stimulating blood flow and cellular activity in problem areas.
Veterinary Surgical Cutting Lasers
CO2 lasers are also in use for surgical incisions, and provide many advantages over the traditional scalpel. For one, a laser incision provides instant cauterization, and significantly minimizes bleeding in surgical patients. Pet laser surgery can also make for faster healing times, helping pets recover in a quicker, safer manner from intensive procedures.
Laser technology has helped to expand our veterinary capabilities in some truly significant ways. We are proud to be able care for your cat or dog using these progressive methods for cleaner, quicker treatments with even more positive results. We invite you to contact the clinic if you’d like to speak with us further about laser options for your pet.
