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:
- Oral procedures
- Wound healing
- Skin conditions
- 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.
