Laser therapy is a recent innovation in veterinary medicine, and this painless, drug-free treatment is available for your pet companion at Sand Mountain Small Animal/Equine Hospital in Boaz, Alabama. Laser therapy emits light energy that is absorbed by the body’s tissue and cells. This energy stimulates cells to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which aids in the rebuilding of healthy cells.
There are many applications and conditions that can be positively affected using laser therapy. Surgical sites, wounds, cuts, abrasions, bites from another animal, lick granulomas, and even fractures can all be treated with laser therapy promoting much faster healing.
Pain management is another excellent application of our laser therapy. In the past, conditions such as osteoarthritis could only be treated with the use of medications such as NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). Today, however, laser therapy is an excellent drug-free alternative that may provide relief without the use of medication.
Dr. Adams travels across the country and spends many hours at lectures and educational events each year to ensure that Sand Mountain Small Animal/Equine Hospital offers the safest and most effective treatments for our valued clients. He has determined that laser therapy meets these criteria. If your pet has a wound or painful condition and you would like to know if laser therapy would benefit them, call today to schedule an appointment and have your pet’s condition evaluated.
