Alternative medicine, sometimes called holistic, complementary or integrative therapy, provides an added layer of treatment for a variety of medical conditions that our animal companions can suffer from. Some of these alternative treatment methods include laser therapy, a cutting edge method that utilizes modern technology to aid in the treatment and management of pain and many medical conditions. Academy Pet Hospital is proud to offer laser therapy as an alternative care option as part of a more comprehensive approach to veterinary care.
Class 4 Laser Therapy
Laser therapy is a cutting edge technology that uses a high-intensity light to painlessly penetrate the skin and address areas within the body that are injured or causing pain. Laser therapy has been proven to reduce pain, improve mobility and speed healing following surgery or injury. This treatment option is particularly favorable because it is fast, painless, non-invasive and drug-free. While the results of laser therapy can often be seen almost immediately, the number and frequency of treatments will be determined on a case by case basis, depending on the condition being treated.
