Another recent innovation in veterinary medicine is the use of laser light to alleviate pain and inflammation, and heal wounds. Dr. Heath understands the benefits of this drug and pain-free instrument, and is pleased to offer laser therapy at Faithful Friends Animal Hospital.
Many wounds can be treated and healed much faster when laser therapy is utilized. For example, incisions made during surgical procedures heal faster when laser light is used on the area. Other wounds such as a bite from another animal, lick granulomas, and even fractures can be effectively treated with the therapy laser at Faithful Friends.
Pain management is another excellent application of laser therapy. In the past, osteoarthritis could only be treated with an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug). Today, however, laser therapy is an excellent drug-free alternative that may provide relief without medication.
Dr. Ivy Heath constantly strives to insure that the only the safest and most effective treatments are provided at Faithful Friends Veterinary Hospital, and the therapy laser completely fits that description. 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 and schedule an appointment today!
