Laser Therapy

Laser therapy, specifically photobiomodulation therapy (PBM), has rapidly evolved as a groundbreaking treatment in veterinary medicine. At Happy Tails Animal Hospital in Renton, WA, we proudly utilize the Companion Laser Therapy system, a doctor-prescribed, technician-driven modality recognized for its versatility and effectiveness in treating various conditions.

Symptoms Treated by Laser Therapy

Laser therapy can effectively treat various symptoms, including but not limited to:

  • Swelling or inflammation
  • Post-surgical pain and discomfort
  • Acute wounds and injuries
  • Chronic pain, such as arthritis or hip dysplasia
  • Skin issues and infections

Why Laser Therapy is Needed

As pets age or undergo surgeries, they may experience pain, inflammation, or slower healing processes. Traditional medications might offer relief, but they may come with side effects. Laser therapy provides a non-invasive alternative that addresses the symptoms and promotes faster healing. By harnessing the power of PBM, tissue regeneration is accelerated, and inflammation is reduced, offering pets a quicker return to their normal activities.

Treatment Process

The treatment process with the Companion Laser Therapy system is streamlined for effectiveness:

  • Consultation: Dr. Mann evaluates the pet’s condition, ensuring laser therapy is the right course of action.
  • Calibration: The Companion Laser Therapy system is calibrated based on the specific condition and the pet’s species, ensuring precise treatment.
  • Application: The laser is applied to the affected area, with the pet comfortably positioned. This process is pain-free and often soothing to the pet.
  • Duration: Each session typically lasts a few minutes, though the exact duration varies based on the condition being treated.
  • Post-Treatment Care: Pets can return to their regular activities immediately after treatment. However, specific care instructions may be provided, depending on the condition treated.

Proactive Pet Care

Laser therapy stands as a testament to the advancements in veterinary care, offering impressive results in symptom relief and accelerated healing. But as with any medical intervention, preventing conditions’s always more beneficial than treating them.

The foundation of proactive pet care lies in routine measures: regular check-ups to monitor health, ensuring a nutritionally balanced diet, providing ample opportunities for exercise, and being vigilant for early signs of health issues. These simple steps can significantly minimize the need for laser treatments, ensuring a healthier and happier life for our furry friends.

Post-Laser Therapy Projections

The transformative impact of laser therapy in the world of veterinary care cannot be overstated. An increasing number of pet owners are testifying to the tangible benefits they observe in their pets, often after a few sessions. Such endorsements speak volumes about the efficacy of this advanced treatment.

Beyond the immediate results, its gentle approach sets laser therapy apart. Its non-invasive nature means pets bounce back immediately post-treatment, with no lingering discomfort. Furthermore, the drug-free methodology ensures that pets aren’t exposed to potential side effects commonly associated with medication, making it a preferred choice for many conscious pet owners
