Address Your Pet's Health Problems Comfortably with the Help of Laser Therapy
Many of the conditions known to affect pets today can be treated by a veterinarian. Unfortunately, not all treatment methods are suitable for all pets. What we at the Magnolia Animal Hospital in Raleigh, NC present is a form of treatment that is more versatile and suitable to more pets.
It is a treatment known as pet laser therapy.
What Is Pet Laser Therapy?
You have probably heard about some form of laser therapy being used on people, but it turns out that our animal companions can benefit from it as well.
Laser therapy works by setting into motion a process known as photobiomodulation. According to the American Animal Hospital Association, photobiomodulation is a process that can cause the alteration of different cells and tissues.
The light coming from the laser can effectively stimulate the cells in your pet’s body. Once the cells are stimulated enough, they may start to grow, move around, or engage in self-repair.
A laser therapy session can wrap up quickly. It may be completed in half an hour if everything goes according to plan. Often, things do go according to plan because pets do not mind the warm sensation caused by the laser.
Pet laser therapy is a very safe proposition. In rare cases, damage to the tissues may be caused by the laser, but that will only happen if the person administering the treatment is careless. You can eliminate that minimal risk by going to a reputable animal hospital.
What Can Laser Therapy Treat in Pets?
Laser therapy can be used to treat a variety of ailments affecting your pet. Scratches and injuries stemming from an accident can be addressed with its help.
This treatment is also good for some of the chronic conditions that may affect pets such as joint pain and arthritis.
How long your pet will need treatment will depend on the kind of ailment. If it is a wound or a serious injury, daily laser treatment will probably be needed. Chronic conditions may be treated by paying a weekly visit to the veterinarian.
Why Choose Laser Therapy for Your Pet
As mentioned earlier, not all pets are suitable for all forms of treatment. Some pets may be compromised in some way that makes them unsuitable to receive medication. Other pets may be so fussy that giving them any kind of pill is next to impossible.
The great thing about laser therapy is that it can improve your pet’s condition while simultaneously keeping them comfortable. Give it a try and see how your furry friend likes it.
