At Town and Country Animal Clinic we strive to offer the most advanced treatment options available whenever possible. One of the tools we are proud to offer here is the option of using a medical laser to aid in the healing process of many types of chronic and acute pain. The medical laser is able to induce strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema, and analgesic effects simultaneously and within a short period of time, and often after only one treatment session. This process is achieved by the use of a laser beam that provides light energy (photons) that is able to penetrate the animal’s tissues, where it interacts with various molecules (chromophores) that cause different biological effects such as stimulating blood and lymphatic circulation, and inducing fast reabsorption of fluid build-ups. This has a secondary effect on pain, which is diminished by reducing the inflammatory process. The most common Laser Therapy Indications are:
  • Arthritis (Degenerative Joint Disease)
  • Back Pain (Intervertebral Disc Disease)
  • Trauma to skin, muscle, or bone
  • Wounds
  • Post-Surgical (Incisions, Growth removals, or Orthopedic surgery)
  • Inflammatory conditions such as lick granulomas, hot spots, otitis, periodontitis, idiopathic cystitis, or sinusitis
Laser Therapy has been in use for more than 25 years and its effectiveness has been validated in more than 3,000 scientific publications. We have also had very positive response from clients who have seen the immediate and lasting effects on their pets, as well as staff members seeing the benefits on patients and on their own personal pets. One of the biggest benefits to using laser therapy as a treatment option is that there are no side effects when used acutely or chronically, which is not always the case with some of the oral medications we use to help treat pain. Unfortunately Laser Therapy cannot be used in every patient we see, due to the fact that it is not recommended in patients with cancer. Treatment options with laser therapy can vary from one session on a surgical incision to several sessions to help heal a more severe issue such as burn or orthopedic problem. We also have patients who after receiving a series of laser treatments for a chronic issue, go on to maintain the benefits with once monthly treatments. We offer different price packages to suit the varying needs of the issue being treated. Please ask a Doctor or technician for more information on what treatment options would be recommended for your pet’s needs. Also ask about our Surgical Laser available for your pet!
