We place the greatest importance on your pet’s well-being and comfort. Perhaps no better example of this is our Class IV 12W Therapy Laser – the most powerful and effective therapy laser available on the planet.

Therapy laser is the latest technology, providing a pain free and noninvasive treatment that can greatly increase the quality of life for your pet. Laser therapy is a safe FDA approved modality, often resulting in the reduction or elimination of pain medications for our patients.

As with the most advanced human therapeutic lasers – a deep penetrating light allows serious relief from pain – without any medications or dangerous side effects! The beneficial effects of the laser are many, and include:

  • Relieves Pain
  • Reduces Inflammation
  • Accelerates Healing Through Tissue Repair
  • Improves Circulation
  • Reduces Scar Formation
  • Improves Nerve and Immune Function
  • Stimulates Acupuncture Points

Arthritis, joint problems, and soft tissue injuries are just a few examples of the many conditions helped by this noninvasive modality. Laser therapy is also a standard part of our post surgery protocol, thanks to its ability to reduce pain and significantly improve healing. Almost every surgical patient (unless contraindicated) has a treatment after their operation, and all orthopedic surgery patients receive at least one additional treatment while still at Veterinary Associates of Cape Cod.

Conditions that respond best include:

  • Arthritic conditions such as hip or elbow dysplasia
  • Neck or back pain such as intervertebral disc disease
  • Wound healing such as post surgical incisions or trauma
  • Dermatological conditions such as lick granulomas, chronic ear infections, or severe hot spots
  • Soft tissue damage such as muscle, ligament, and tendon injury
  • Geriatric aches and pains such as degenerative joint disease

Your veterinarian will develop a treatment plan that is customized to your pet’s unique needs. Even though laser therapy is cumulative in treatments, many owners notice improvement within the first few treatments.

If your four-legged family member lives with chronic pain or on daily pain medication – the therapeutic laser may help. Talk with us during your next wellness exam or schedule an appointment to discuss this exciting new technology for your pet.
