Laser therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free, non invasive treatment to reduce pain, inflammation, and to speed healing.
At Berkley Animal Hospital, we use a Class IV Deep Tissue Laser. It sends bundles of light energy, photons, into tissue. These photons are absorbed into the energy center, mitochondria, of individual cells. The absorption of this energy starts a chemical cascade that increases the production of energy, ATP, in the cell. This energy is necessary for repair and rejuvenation of cells. During the short laser treatments, your pets feels only gentle and soothing warmth.
At Berkley Animal Hospital, laser therapy is used for a variety of things including muscle sprains or strains, wounds, infections, arthritis, ear hematomas, urinary tract infections, surgical incisions, periodontal disease, and Inflammation among other conditions.
Any doctor at Berkley Animal Hospital can help decide and advise whether laser therapy is beneficial for your pet. Start with setting up an examination appointment with any of our doctors!
