Is Your Pet in Pain? Contact Henderson Animal Hospital to
Get Your Pet the Veterinarian Care They Need
Your pet may be in pain due to an injury or simply due to the aging process. When your pet is in pain, it can be hard to sit by and do nothing. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to help relieve some of the pain and discomfort your pet may be experiencing. One of the treatments that we at Henderson Animal Hospital in Winnipeg, Canada offer is companion laser therapy. Unfortunately, many people are unfamiliar with this type of pain-relieving method. Here is everything you should know about it.
What is Companion Laser Therapy?
Companion laser therapy is the process of applying a cold laser to your pet that assists and aids with the treatment of pain they may be experiencing. It stimulates the cells and promotes healing while also alleviating the pain your pet may experience. It is a drug-free alternative to help your pet on to the road of recovery. Companion laser therapy is an LED beam of light that stimulates cells in the body that helps repair the tissue. Based on the intensity of the light and the duration of the application, the wavelengths inhibit or stimulate repairs on a molecular level.
What Are the Benefits of a Companion Laser Therapy Machine?
The benefit of the companion laser therapy machine is that it helps tremendously with any acute pain your pet may be feeling. The treatment is painless and time-efficient. If the treatment needs to go into the deep tissue, then it may take up to ten minutes. For chronic pain, it may take three to five treatments. The treatment is actively reducing swelling and inflammation and the healing process continues actively for 24 hours after the treatment ends.
How Does a Companion Laser Therapy Machine Relieve Pain in Animals?
The laser therapy machine actively relieves pain in your furry companion. Because it repairs and heals the tissue on a molecular level, the healing process is almost instantaneous. The treatment is non-invasive and healing occurs continuously for 24 hours with little to no discomfort to your pet.
