Pet Laser Therapy in Harrisonburg, VA
A Safe & Effective Way to Reduce Pain & Speed Up Recovery
Laser therapy is a safe, non-invasive, and non-surgical form of treatment that benefits pets suffering from a wide range of conditions, diseases, and injuries. A single session of treatment lasts only three to eight minutes and your pet won’t feel any pain. Most clients notice immediate results and improvement in their pet’s condition right away.
Chronic Joint Disease
Many of our clients have pets suffering from arthritis of the lumbar spine, hips, and knees. Laser therapy allows us to proactively offer scheduled therapy appointments to reduce the pain and inflammation your pet experiences due to arthritis. Laser therapy can make it easier for them to walk, run, and play.
For most patients suffering from chronic joint disease, we recommend starting laser therapy two times a week for the first three weeks. From there, we can follow up and schedule additional sessions as needed. Laser therapy is a great way to improve the quality of your pet’s life without any negative side effects.
Laser therapy is a reliable treatment method to reduce acute and chronic pain. The sooner your pet starts therapy after suffering trauma, the better. Your pet will experience quick relief and that lasts longer each time they undergo treatment.
Laser therapy is one of very few effective treatment methods to assist neurological rehabilitation. We have seen laser therapy make a marked difference in cases of IVDD, FCE, and neurological trauma. When developing a treatment plan, we’ll consider your pet’s diagnostic imaging results, the severity of their condition, and the current quality of their life.
At Heartland Veterinary Clinic, we use laser therapy to treat pets immediately following surgical procedures to speed up the wound healing process. Laser therapy can also reduce pain for post-operative pets.
Laser therapy is effective at treating a wide variety of wounds – even non-healing wounds. Lick granulomas are one type of wound that can be treated well with laser therapy. Pets will not feel any pain when they undergo laser therapy for wounds.
