LASER THERAPY

Does your pet suffer from chronic pain? Has a recent surgery or injury sidelined your normally active companion?

At Animal Hospital of Mt. Pocono, we believe that when it comes to caring for your animal family member, you should have as many choices as possible. That’s why we’re pleased to offer laser therapy as part of our comprehensive suite of services. The laser uses painless waves of light to treat areas of the body that have suffered trauma or are experiencing pain. This triggers a natural response without the need for medication or other invasive measures. As a result, your best friend can enjoy decreased pain, enhanced mobility and shorter recovery periods.

What is veterinary laser therapy?

Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive treatment method that stimulates the body’s natural healing and pain control response. It can be used as a standalone therapy or as a complement to other treatment protocols. Using a small, handheld device, the doctor applies a low level laser to the area in question, stimulating the body’s normal cellular function. This results in faster wound healing and enhanced relief from pain. Most importantly, because laser therapy requires no medication or surgery, there are no harmful side effects.

The veterinary therapy laser provides relief for your dogs, cats, or other pets by:

  • Speeding the healing process of a surgery or injury
  • Easing pain and improving mobility without drugs or surgery
  • Relieving aches and pains and improving quality of life for older pets
  • Providing instant relief from discomfort caused by common disorders, like ear infections or skin sores

What can laser therapy treat?

Laser therapy can be used to address a broad spectrum of conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Disc disease
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Sprains and strains
  • Cranial cruciate ligament
  • Dental problems
  • Chronic pain and inflammation
  • Dermatological conditions
  • Lick granulomas
  • Post-surgical
  • Ear problems
  • Any area of pain or discomfort

How many sessions will my pet need?

Because every companion animal is different, their response to the therapeutic laser is equally unique. Depending on your loved one’s specific condition, its severity and a number of other determining factors, treatment strategies will vary. For some patients, positive results can be seen after just one session. Others may require a more long-term strategy to achieve the desired outcome. We will provide you with an individual treatment recommendation once we’ve had the opportunity to evaluate your pet’s specific situation.
