Improving Care & Safety with Lasers
Lasers have become an important veterinary tool for pain management therapy.
Lasers are an effective pain management tool in treating many types of injuries. Lasers are used to painlessly treat injured pet tissue and offer the following benefits:
- The application of laser light stimulates area blood vessels to bring fresh blood to the area, which promotes faster healing.
- Laser light dilates fluid-carrying lymphatic vessels, enabling them to carry away fluids, thereby reducing swelling in the area.
- Nerves in the area are temporarily numb, which helps to reduce pain in the area.
- Laser light reduces bacterial growth and infection in the exposed area.
Laser therapy can be used to treat a variety of ailments from skin and ear infections, oral inflammation, muscle injuries, and osteoarthritis.
