Laser Therapy

Does your pet suffer from chronic pain? Has a recent surgery or injury slowed your normally active companion down?

At Pendleton Veterinary Clinic, we believe that when it comes to caring for your cherished companion, you should have as many choices as possible. That’s why we’re pleased to offer laser therapy as part of our comprehensive suite of services. The laser uses painless waves of light to treat areas of the body that are experiencing pain or have suffered trauma. This triggers a natural response without the need for medication or other invasive measures. As a result, your animal family member can enjoy decreased pain, enhanced mobility and shorter recovery periods.

What is veterinary laser therapy?

Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive form of treatment which stimulates the body’s natural healing and pain control response. It can be used as a standalone therapy or as a complement to other treatment methods. Using a small, handheld device, the doctor applies a low level laser to the area on question, stimulating normal cellular function. This results in faster wound healing and enhanced pain relief. Best of all, because laser therapy requires no medication or surgery, there are no harmful side effects.

What are the benefits of laser therapy?

  • Anti-Inflammation – Decreases swelling from bruising/inflammation
  • Anti-Pain – Blocks pain by decreasing nerve sensitivity
  • Accelerates Tissue Repair, Cell Growth and Nerve Function
  • Improves Circulation
  • Accelerates Healing and Reduces Scarring

What can laser therapy treat?

Laser therapy can be used to address a broad spectrum of conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Disc Disease
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Cranial Cruciate Ligament
  • Dental Problems
  • Chronic Pain and Inflammation
  • Dermatological Conditions
  • Lick Granulomas

How many sessions will my pet need?

Because every pet is different, their response to laser therapy is equally unique. Depending on your loved one’s specific condition, its severity and a number of other determining factors, treatment strategies will vary. For some patients, positive results can be seen after just one session. Others may require a more long-term strategy to achieve the desired outcome. We will provide you with an individual treatment recommendation once we’ve had the opportunity to evaluate your companion’s situation.

Does your best friend suffer from a chronic medical condition, like arthritis? Has a recent injury or surgery negatively impacted your companion’s lifestyle or quality of life? If so, we invite you to reach out today to learn whether the laser therapy services at Pendleton Veterinary Clinic could help.

      We have been taking our pup to the grooming part of the clinic since she was a puppy. We decided to switch to PVC because it just made sense to do everything in one place. They were very communicative and gave us the best option to treat her allergies as well as all of her shots. I would 100% recommend them.
