Billings Animal Family Hospital Offers Therapeutic Laser Therapy for Pets
Laser therapy is used to treat a variety of injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions, dermatological problems, and pain. It is designed to heal the body from within, providing a sterile, pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment.
Whether your pet requires treatment for an injury, wound, or symptoms of aging, your animal companion will benefit from this revolutionary new approach to veterinary medicine.
How Laser Therapy Works
Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body and absorbed by the injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism. This results in increased circulation, an anti-inflammatory reaction, and relief from pain as the treatment accelerates the healing process.
Simply put, it provides relief.
As the laser is administered, the almost immediate relief of pain dissipates anxiety and allows your pet to relax. Pain relief is provided in just a few minutes of therapy and improves the quality of life for your animal companion. Billings Animal Family Hospital offers several different treatment options, from a single treatment to multi-treatment packages, depending on your pet’s needs.
Dr. Best talks about the use of laser therapy at Billings Animal Family:
“We have used our therapeutic laser for a wide range of conditions. We helped a Yorkshire terrier walk again after a neurologic disorder and healed a terrible wound on a greyhound’s leg. There are so many applications and we are very excited and pleased to offer this treatment.”
