Laser Therapy Treatment Options for Dogs & Cats
Countless veterinary professionals and pet owners are embracing therapeutic laser treatments as an excellent way to relieve pain and accelerate the healing process in small animals. Long Animal Hospital is proud to offer modern laser treatments, which can be extremely effective as a therapeutic solution for your pet. Laser therapy provides our veterinarians with a very useful tool against pain, either as a drug-free option or with standard treatments to enhance comfort beyond the abilities of medication.
Veterinary K Laser
The veterinarians of Long Animal Hospital provide laser therapy sessions as standalone procedures or in tandem with other treatments. The K Laser is a high-powered therapy laser that uses red and near-infrared wavelengths of light to relieve pain, fight inflammation, reduce swelling, increase range of motion, and stimulate wound healing. Long Animal Hospital has found laser therapy treatments to be effective in many scenarios, including:
- Arthritis, relieving pain and restoring mobility
- Skin conditions
- Post-surgical pain relief
- Degenerative joint disease
- Insect bites/stings
- Hip dysplasia
- Ear infection
- Bladder infection
Laser therapy has allowed our veterinarian professionals to manage these conditions and others, providing relief from many types of inflammation and discomfort, all in a completely painless and sedation-free manner.
Therapeutic laser treatments can work for any pet. To speak with our staff about how laser therapy might help your cat or dog, or to schedule a visit, simply contact us.
“The timeliness of my check in and wait time - both in the lobby and exam room - was impressive. I hated going to another vet clinic due to the long wait times which is very stressful on these animals (and their people, too). Dr. R. Killough wasted no time in accessing the situation. He zeroed in quickly and efficiently, ordering the correct tests. Excellent diagnosis quickly given. I came to Long's precisely because I was not getting satisfaction elsewhere. Here there were immediate results and guidance for going forward Dr. Killough also explained everything thoroughly and never acted insulted by our 'stupid' questions.”
