At the cutting edge of veterinary therapeutic treatments for pets, MLS® Laser Therapy is offered at The Village Vet at Sterling Ridge to mitigate pain and reduce inflammation of pets suffering from a host of various conditions. You may have some questions about what it is, how it works and what conditions can be treated with this therapy.
Following is a list of the common questions, and answers, about this new and effective treatment option:
What is Laser Therapy? Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light that accelerate the body's natural healing process. These wavelengths of light are able to treat several painful and debilitating conditions.
How does it work? Light energy enters the damaged cells of the body. The wavelengths are able to stimulate intra-cellular activity. This has a twofold beneficial effect: it reduces pain in the area, and it speeds the healing process of the damaged cells, thereby speeding up the recovery process. Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete.
What can my pet expect during a treatment? One of the greatest attributes of MLS® Laser Therapy use is that it is painless. It is also usually very quick (appointment times are no longer than 10 minutes). Meanwhile, your pet experiences a session that involves a comfortable sensation at the point of the application.
What can I expect to see after the treatment? Most see positive results from their pet in one to three treatments. Acute conditions can subside very quickly, in as little as just one treatment. Pets with more chronic conditions might be managed with regular weekly treatments. Your veterinarian will be able to provide reasonable expectations for the condition of your pet. Also, there are no known side effects, and oftentimes pain medications can be reduced or even eliminated after MLS® Laser Therapy treatment.
What conditions can be treated with MLS® Laser Therapy? Conditions include, but are not limited to: • Arthritis Pain • Chronic Non-healing Wounds • Post-Op & Wound Healing • Tendonitis • Lick Granuloma • Inflamed Ears • Hip Dysplasia • Disc Disease (IVDD) • Joint & Neurological Pain • Dermatitis
