Laser therapy and thermography
If your pet has a wound, inflammation or feels pain laser therapy is an excellent treatment option. It is completely safe with no undesirable side effects. A therapeutic laser can treat several acute or chronic conditions. More specifically, it can be used to treat a variety of injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions, many dermatological problems and pain. Whether your pet is recovering from trauma or injury, or simply getting older, laser therapy has been shown to provide relief and speed up the healing process.
How does it work?
The laser light is delivered through a non-invasive hand piece to treat the affected area. While undergoing treatment, your pet will feel a gentle, soothing warmth in the area in which the laser is being applied. As the laser is applied, many pets will relax, much like you would while experiencing a good massage, and the near immediate relief of pain will help to increase your pet’s comfort.
How long does treatment last?
Each pet has its own individual treatment plan in order to speed up the healing process. Once your veterinarian has evaluated your pet’s condition, a treatment plan will be decided.
TO MAKE THE DIFFERENCE
Your pet can’t always communicate where it hurts.
DTI (Digital thermal imaging) allows your veterinarian to locate the areas of your pet’s pain and inflammation by measuring the radiated energy from targeted tissues and by illustrating areas of increased and decreased circulation. The difference in radiated energy can be measured by temperature and color associated with the change. Hotter areas depict inflammation and cooler areas lack of circulation. DTI allows pet owners to see before, during and after treatment results. It is pain free, non-evasive and completely safe (no radiation).
