A Drug-free Alternative for Your Pet

At Hill Country Animal Hospital, we are committed to providing a wide range of treatment options for all of our clients. This includes laser therapy, a drug-free option to manage a variety of ailments pets may experience throughout their lives. The latest in alternative treatments, laser therapy helps speed recovery following surgery and reduces pain associated with several conditions, including:

Laser Therapy
  • Oral procedures
  • Wound healing
  • Skin conditions
  • Arthritis
  • Inflammation
  • Snake bites

Laser therapy uses an infrared laser light that penetrates deep into the tissues. There it is absorbed by the cells and converted into chemical energy. Therapy is delivered without touching the afflicted area, which allows the treatment to provide immediate pain relief to highly sensitive tissues.

Research shows that laser therapy is highly effective in promoting wound healing and recovery. Studies have found that laser therapy helps wounds heal up to 50 percent faster than wounds treated with conventional methods. Depending on the ailment, one dose of laser therapy may be enough to increase healing. Other conditions may require multiple visits for maximum benefit.

At our facility we use Companion® Therapy Laser, a high-tech system that allows us to deliver adequate dosages of laser energy painlessly and efficiently to deeper tissues. This allows us to effectively treat chronic conditions and improve the quality of life for your pet.

Laser therapy services can be individualized based on the needs of your pet. Sessions can be purchased individually, or in a package of 4 or 10 sessions. Whether it’s hip dysplasia or recovery from surgery, laser therapy serves as a promising treatment for alleviating pain and reducing recovery time.

So happy we were referred to this office, very satisfied with the experience. Really concerned about leaving our vet in AZ. We are happy now. Everyone was caring and professional. Would highly recommend this office.
Martha H., San Antonio, TX
I was very impressed with the welcoming facility and how much Harley was catered to. She never leaves the house but she felt at home in her exam room roaming around and jumping on counters. She even greeted everyone with open arms even though she was in a new place. She as well as her sister will be coming back if the need arises.
Kari W., Helotes, TX
Dr. Krick and your whole team are wonderful. In addition, the overall high standards of Hill Country Animal Hospital as a whole are excellent. It is why we have remained clients over the years even after moving away from Helotes.
Paul M., San Antonio, TX
Always have friendly, loving, knowledgeable doctors who spend adequate time with our pets. I love how I can see they actually care for our furry family members. The experience at this office is superb. From being immaculately clean to the care and candor provided by the staff, you have made a lifelong customer. I would easily drive 100 miles to obtain the level of customer service provided by this practice. Well done! (sic)
