K-Laser Therapy

No one wants to see a beloved cat or dog experience pain. Whether it’s due to a hot spot, a bite wound, hip dysplasia, or arthritis, the discomfort in a pet’s eyes can be heartbreaking. That’s why at Villa Rica Animal Hospital, we believe in using laser therapy to provide advanced pain relief.

Our veterinary clinic is equipped to penetrate a pet’s tissues, decrease inflammation and pain, and speed up the healing process. In the case of external wounds or ailments, this helps to make the area less irritated, resulting in reduced licking and a more rapid recovery time. The laser is also helpful in the case of surgical incisions, such as with a spay operation. As a service to our patients, we include a laser treatment for those surgeries where it will be of benefit. Physicians use the same laser technology to treat humans, and we are pleased to make it available to our valued pet patients.

Some of the pet health conditions that may benefit from cold laser therapy include:

  • Anal sac infections
  • Arthritis pain
  • Back pain
  • Bite wounds
  • Cystitis
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Gingivitis
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Hot spots
  • Lick granulomas
  • Periodontal disease
  • Surgery incisions

Once our veterinarian determines that your cat or dog would benefit from this pet care therapy, a treatment program will be scheduled with one of our highly skilled veterinary technicians. The procedure is quick and painless – so much so, in fact, for some pets it feels like a comforting massage. Laser therapy is also cost effective, so you can provide your cat or dog pain relief without inflicting undue suffering on your bank account.
