We are pleased to offer to all of our patients at Meadow Branch Animal Hospital laser treatment, commonly known as photo-biomodulation treatment. The way a laser operates is by administering therapeutic dosages of light energy to injured tissues. As a result, the tissues begin to gently heat up and the blood vessels dilate, increasing the amount of blood flowing to the affected area. While eliminating waste, the increased blood flow helps to nourish injured cells. This will then start reducing swelling and hastening our patients' recovery. Among the numerous benefits of laser treatment is the ability to help patients with their arthritis, healing areas where fractures occurred, and hot spots.
Claire M. is one of our patients who is presently receiving laser treatment. She is a stunningly huge eight-year-old Great Dane with a history of spinal arthritis. Due to the treatment's therapeutic qualities, Claire began receiving it in April and has not needed to take any pain medication for the last six months. Claire is more animated overall and has returned to her usual antics, according to the owner.
A 16-year-old Pug mix, named Ruca C, is another one of our little ones receiving laser treatment. Laser treatment is a fantastic treatment for patients of all shapes and sizes.
