Cutting Edge Laser Therapy

We Are Proud To Offer Laser Therapy at South Hyland Pet Hospital!!

Introducing the Newest Way to Help Manage Your Pet’s Pain!

For over eleven years, South Hyland has offered laser surgery to our patients to help decrease surgical pain and swelling.

Our newest laser, the Cutting Edge therapeutic laser, has remarkable benefits for pets with other problems such as:

  • arthritis
  • tendon and ligament injuries
  • sore muscles and joints
  • neurologic pain
  • inter-vertebral disk disease
  • chronic non-healing wounds
  • musculo-skeletal disorders
  • chronic ear and/or skin inflammation
  • chronic bladder inflammation in cats
  • many other conditions related to pain and/or inflammation
  • postoperative wound healing

How does it work?

The specific wavelengths of laser light energy interact with cells within the tissue to initiate processes that decrease pain, inflammation and edema.

Any species can be treated with the laser, including dogs, cats, birds, and small mammals.

What are the Benefits?

  • nonsurgical treatment, no sedation required
  • extremely safe with no long-term side effects (a very small percentage of patients may experience a temporary increase in their level of discomfort following laser treatment)
  • treatments are quick, done in the exam room, usually last less than 10 minutes
  • immediate results
  • speeds the healing process
  • may decrease the amount of chronic pain medication needed
  • may help patients already on maximum medial therapy but are still uncomfortable

What Does It Cost?

The cost is based on the condition treated and number of treatments needed. Individual treatments start at around $49. Condition-specific packages are available at a discount. Results usually begin after one treatment, but in chronic conditions, six initial treatments are recommended for optimal response. Sustained response in chronic conditions involves maintenance treatments averaging every 3-4 weeks, depending on the patient while acute conditions require fewer treatments.

How Do I Help My Pet Become Less Painful, Using the Therapy Laser?

dog-arthritis-imageCall or email South Hyland Pet Hospital and ask if your pet would benefit from this service. The doctor will be consulted and discuss specific therapy plans and costs for your individual pet(s), and the initial service can be scheduled.

Treatment for pets with known existing appropriate conditions can be commenced right away. Pets with new problems, or those who are not current on a physical exam, require a doctor’s evaluation to determine the correct diagnosis before we can prescribe and perform laser therapy.
