If your dog or cat has an acute or chronic medical condition, Lincoln Park Veterinary Hospital provides a progressive treatment called therapeutic laser to help alleviate your pet’s symptoms. Laser therapy is noninvasive, and highly effective in treating a variety of conditions such as wounds, allergies, degenerative joint disease, and hip dysplasia. We also use laser therapy to aid in the healing process after surgical procedures.
The therapeutic laser produces two different beams of light that deeply penetrates tissue while eliminating harmful toxins and waste the laser. The procedure induces a biological response in the cells which leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation, and increases the speed of healing. Most treatments take only a matter of minutes, and the process does not require surgery or drugs.
Each treatment protocol is unique for the patient and his or her specific condition, and treatments will vary in time, complexity, and cost. Most pets typically experience an improvement in their condition within the first few treatments. Laser therapy can also be used to enhance other treatment plans recommended by our veterinarians.
