Sawmill Animal Hospital offers laser therapy to assist in wound healing and inflammation relief. MLS laser therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free, noninvasive treatment to reduce pain, reduce inflammation and to speed healing. MLS laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to stimulate cells and increase blood circulation. Laser therapy has been used in humans for a long time and now we are able to extend the benefits of the treatment to your pets. Treatments usually last a few minutes and most patients see positive results in 1 to 3 treatments. Treatments are unique to each patient and treatments will vary in time, cost and complexity. This treatment can also be used in conjunction with other treatments. The technology used in our clinic accelerates your pet’s ability to heal by helping cells regenerate at a faster rate. The benefits to using laser therapy on your pet are:
- Non-pharmacologic pain relief
- Effective for difficult conditions
- Alternative to surgery
- Fast treatment times
- Easy, comfortable, non-invasive treatment
Laser therapy can treat a variety of conditions including: inflammatory joint disease; wound healing; sprains and fractures; inflammatory bowel disease; lick granulomas; feline acne and even dental disease relief.
When your pet undergoes a laser therapy session at Sawmill Animal Hospital, it is a very laid-back and relaxed atmosphere. Your pet may even sleep through their session because relief from pain is almost immediate! How long the relief lasts depends on the severity of the condition and it is important to remember that it may take several sessions to give complete treatment. Ask our staff for more information if you are interested in setting up a session for your animal companion.
