Laser Therapy

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

At Creature Comforts Animal Hospital, 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 happy 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 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
  • Wounds
  • Ear infections

 

How many sessions will my pet need?

Because every animal is different, their response to laser therapy is equally unique. Depending on your companion’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 pet’s situation.

 

Does your pet 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 Creature Comforts Animal Hospital could help.

      Absolutely wonderful just like always. Our baby was attacked by 2 other dogs yesterday receiving severe puncture wounds but missed bones and vital organs. We called them saying we were on the way and they were ready as we walked through the door. She is resting on daddy's lap now.
      Always stellar customer service and genuine concern for the "children" of others.

      My cat has diabetes. She was seen last June at Critter Care, the sister hospital. They were going through some changes with staff, so Dr Taylor Francher took over KK’s care.
      We did everything by phone, I would do glucose curves once a week, call the numbers in to Creature Comforts, and Dr Francher would call me back and tell me what dose of insulin to give her.
      When it came time for KK’s check up, I decided to go to Creature Comforts so I could finally meet Dr Francher. She is even more amazing in person than she is on the phone.
      It’s a beautiful, clean, comfortable facility. All of the staff are very caring, and really make you feel like your pet matters!
      It’s definitely not as convenient for me to go to, but I can’t see going anywhere else now!

      My little Biscuit had Parvo 24 hours after I bought him home. Creature Comforts nursed him back to health. We are forever grateful to them for saving our new pup. 🐾❤️
