Perkins Road Veterinary Hospital offers laser therapy, an innovative, painless, drug-free treatment that reduces pain and promotes healing for pets that have wounds, surgical incisions, burns, snake bites, and chronic or acute conditions such as arthritis. We are dedicated to utilizing the highest standard of veterinary technology, and laser therapy is one of the ways in which we stay on the cutting edge of our field.
Laser therapy uses low level lasers to stimulate the natural healing capabilities of the body’s cells. This particular therapy is effective at promoting healing on a cellular level as well as reducing inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. It can also accelerate tissue repair and cell growth, improve circulation and nerve function, reduce scar tissue formation, and help the immune system fend off infection.
Laser therapy causes no adverse effects on healthy cells. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved, allowing your pet to quickly return to his or her normal activities. Relief and/or improvement is often noticed within hours depending on the condition and your pet’s response.
Whether your pet has experienced trauma or injury, is healing from wounds, or simply aging, your best friend can benefit from this innovative approach to treating pain. If you have any questions or concerns about how laser therapy can benefit your pet, please contact us today. Perkins Road Veterinary Hospital serves pet parents in the Greater Baton Rouge area including Gonzales, Donaldsonville, Zachary, and Walker.
