As veterinary medicine continues to advance, we're able to provide more advanced technologies than ever to treat debilitating pain and injuries here at Coronado Veterinary Hospital. One such technology actually harnesses the power of light to help animals heal. Our advanced K-Laser is a form of pet laser therapy that supports natural pain relief and speedier healing of soft tissues and nerves -- and Coronado Veterinary is delighted to provide this state-of-the-art technique for your pet.
Pet laser therapy uses a different type of of laser than the surgical tool used to create incisions and seal off blood vessels. The therapeutic version of this amplified light technology involves a low-level or "cold" laser. Cold laser therapy doesn't cut or hurt tissues at all; instead, the beam passes right through the skin to apply its healing energy to tissues underneath that may be suffering from injury or chronic pain.
The frequency of the laser beam has some remarkable effects. In a process known as photobiomodulation, the energy increases production of a cellular repair "fuel" called ATP, allowing cells to repair themselves more efficiently. Blood flow and lymphatic drainage both increase, relieving pain, inflammation and swelling. This makes pet laser therapy from your Coronado veterinarian extremely useful for treating acute soft tissue injuries, neuromuscular conditions, osteoarthritis and other chronic pain conditions.
Our animal hospital offers the state of the art in cold laser therapy via our Class IV K-Laser. Class IV lasers are capable of deeper penetration than Class III lasers because they can emit more powerful beams at longer wavelengths. The K-Laser is the only laser in its class that can actually operate at three different infrared wavelengths to provide optimum healing benefits to your Coronado or Imperial Beach pet.
A pet laser therapy session is quick, easy and painless for pets; in fact, many pets experience a pleasantly warm sensation that they find relaxing. There's no need to shave the treatment area, and the laser session itself may take only few minutes to convey its beneficial effects, depending on the severity of the condition and size of the area being treated. As with many other therapeutic techniques, multiple sessions are recommended to achieve the best results, with most pets experiencing noticeable benefits after 3 to 8 sessions. You may notice your pet feeling better and displaying easier mobility within just 12 to 24 hours of treatment.
If you're seeking a means of accelerated injury healing and drug-free pain relief or pain management for your best friend, you owe it to both of you to find out whether he's a good candidate for pet laser therapy. Call our animal hospital today to schedule a consultation and evaluation!
