What is pet laser therapy?
Class IV Laser Therapy is used to ease pain and improve mobility without the use of drugs or surgery. At GoldenView Veterinary Hospital, we use the therapy laser to help treat chronic conditions such as arthritis, gingivitis, and skin problems. Acute conditions including ear infections, traumatic wounds, inflammation of the bladder, and intervertebral disk disease will also respond to laser treatments. A laser treatment following a surgical or dental procedure will promote quicker healing. For more information on the many uses of laser therapy, see companiontherapylaser.com or contact us.
