Neighborhood Pet Clinic recently acquired a class IV Laser. We are excited to use class IV Laser as part of our professional services. Laser therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free, noninvasive treatment that uses a laser light to penetrate into deep tissues without damage. The laser energy induces a biological response in the cells called “photobiomodulation”. This stimulates cell regeneration and helps reduce pain and inflammation. It also increases blood circulation and promotes faster healing. The treatment can be used on dogs and cats. It has been proven to be effective and beneficial for many different conditions. A few examples of how we are using our class IV Laser at NPC include, wounds, arthritis, acute and chronic pain, sprains, ligament and tendon conditions, intervertebral disc disease, incisions post-operatively, ear inflammation and lick granulomas. During the therapy, your pet may feel gentle soothing warmth. Most treatments take a matter of minutes. Treatment protocols are unique to each patient and condition, so the treatments will vary in time, complexity and cost. If you believe your pet might benefit from class IV Laser Therapy, do not hesitate to call Neighborhood Pet Clinic!
