Laser Therapy Reduces Pain and Speeds Healing
For pets and their owners, one of the most difficult experiences is any situation that causes your pet to be in pain! Whether it is an acute illness, a sudden injury or a chronic condition, that pain is all too real and can be heartbreaking. Robinson Animal Hospital is excited to now offer our clients laser therapy for your beloved pets at our Watauga location. Laser therapy is used to reduce pain and inflammation and to speed wound healing. It is a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free and drug-free treament which is used to treat a variety of conditions. It can be used in conjuction with other treatments or as a treatment on it’s own, and is used to treat a variety of different conditions. Relief is often noticed within hours!
Our hospital uses the Companion Therapy Laser®, which uses a class-4, or cold, laser to penetrate a pet’s tissues. The purpose of this is to decrease pain and inflammation and speed up the healing process. If there is an external wound, the laser treatment will make the area less irritated, which will reduce licking and speed up the healing process. This is very helpful when a pet has had surgery, even when it is a routine spay surgery!
Laser therapy is not a new technique but has actually been used for many years. It has been especially successful in the area of sports medicine for humans, having been used on both professional and Olympic athletes. We believe that your pets deserve the same superstar treatment!
Laser therapy is available at our Watauga Avenue and North Johnson City locations. Our doctors will be happy to discuss the benefits of this treatment with you!
