Relieving Painful Conditions with Laser Therapy
for Dogs and Cats
in Atlanta, GA
If your pet has a slow-healing wound or chronic pain caused by arthritis, a sprain, or some other condition, our therapeutic laser might be able to help. Pharr Road Animal Hospital uses laser therapy for dogs and cats to treat a wide range of problems, with minimal risk of side effects. There are no drugs or invasive measures involved, and the procedure itself is quite comfortable for our patients. For gentle and effective pain relief and healing, consider talking to your vet about laser therapy and find out if your companion is a good candidate for treatment.
How It Works
While laser therapy appears to work solely on the surface of the body, its effects actually penetrate deep into the muscle tissue. The photons produced by our laser equipment work at the cellular level to increase cell activity, repair damaged tissue, and increase healing.
It’s important to know that our therapeutic laser will not burn your pet. For each treatment, we calibrate our equipment according to your pet’s needs. A trained technician will perform the procedure with skill and regard for your pet’s comfort. Some patients fall asleep during their treatment!
What does Laser Therapy Actually Do?
Treatment with our therapeutic laser can benefit your pet in multiple ways. Some of the primary effects we expect in our patients include:
- Decreased pain
- Decreased swelling/inflammation
- Improved mobility
- Faster healing of wounds/surgical sites
- Increased blood circulation
