Laser therapy is a recent innovation in veterinary medicine, and this painless, drug-free treatment is available for your pet at All Pets Animal Hospital and Rehabilitation Center in Asheville, North Carolina. Laser therapy uses light energy that is absorbed in the tissue and cells of a pet in treatment. When cells are stimulated using laser energy, adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is produced, which aids in the rebuilding of healthy cells.
Laser therapy can treat and promote healing to many wounds much faster than healing without this method. For example, incisions made during surgical procedures heal more quickly when lasers are used in the area. Injuries such as a bite from another animal, lick granulomas, and even fractures can be treated effectively with the therapy laser at All Pets Animal Hospital and Rehabilitation Center.
Pain management is another excellent application of our therapy laser. In the past, conditions such as osteoarthritis could only be treated with the use of medications such as NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). Today, however, laser therapy is an excellent drug-free alternative that may provide relief without the use of medication.
Our experienced veterinarians travel across the country and spend many hours at lectures and educational events each year to ensure All Pets Animal Hospital and Rehabilitation Center offers the safest and most effective treatments for our valued clients. If your pet has a wound or painful condition and you would like to know if laser therapy would benefit them, call one of our compassionate team members to schedule an appointment today!
