Reducing Pain and Increasing Healing
with Pet Laser Therapy
Every pet deserves to have treatment options that best suit their needs. At Crawford Animal Hospital in Greenfield, we offer pet laser therapy to help manage and treat many different conditions. Using gentle pulses of infrared light, our therapeutic laser non-invasively reduces swelling and pain while also increasing blood circulation and healing. If your pet needs alternative care to improve their condition, laser therapy can help.
Conditions that Benefit from Laser Therapy
Laser therapy has a wide range of applications. It can be used for:
- Muscle pain
- Ligament injuries
- Back pain
- Skin injuries
- Post-surgical pain management and healing
- Lick granulomas
- ...and more
How It Works
During treatment, low-level infrared light energy is absorbed into your pet’s tissues where it can penetrate deep into the muscles and connective tissue. This increases cell activity and regeneration, in addition to other important functions that accelerate healing and boost your pet’s overall energy. There are few if any side-effects associated with pet laser therapy and most important, it’s painless, non-invasive, and requires no sedation.
What to Expect
Treatment sessions can range from five minutes to 30 minutes, depending on what’s being treated. Pets with chronic conditions such as arthritis often need multiple sessions to see improvement, while acute issues, like a recent injury or surgical procedure, can be treated in just one session.
