What is Laser Therapy?

The laser is applied directly to the surface of the skin or it can be held just above the skin surface. A benefit of therapeutic laser therapy it that it is not necessary to shave the fur in the region of treatment. Treatment can be administered without discomfort or restraint.

The beam of the laser consists of wavelengths with photons that penetrate into the tissue. The photons are absorbed by cells that are not properly functioning due to injury or disease. The photons help to initiate cellular processed by increasing the productivity of ATP, the energy source for cells. This increases overall cellular function, allowing for more rapid absorption of nutrients, elimination of wastes and reproduction of new cells. The reproduction of healthy cells and efficiency of cellular function aids to:

  • Alleviated chronic or acute pain
  • Reduce inflammation of soft tissue
  • Reduce edema (fluid trapped in body tissue)
  • Activate immune cells
  • Reduce bacteria in region of treatment  
  • Increase blood flow to region of treatment
  • Help surgery heal and recovery (incisions, growth removals,   bone surgeries)

Emergency & Urgent Care

We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week as well as a veterinarian on call 7 days a week all of which are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such a snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.

We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our team will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
