Should You Seek Laser Therapy Veterinary Services for Your Injured Dog?

Most pet owners are aware of the importance of enlisting vet services when needed, for example, when their dog needs to be vaccinated, when they fall ill or even when they require grooming. But have you ever considered seeking modern-day vet services in the form of laser therapy? A presumption you may have about this new-age treatment is that it will not be a safe, long-term solution for your animal, but you would be mistaken.

The reality is that laser therapy has been used on humans for years on end. In recent times, it has made its way into veterinary medicine as an effective treatment, as more and more people are discovering that it is just as advantageous to animals as it is to their owners. Certainly, your skepticism may stem from the fact that you may not know what to expect. To dispel any misconceptions that you may have, consider the following reasons why you should seek laser therapy veterinary services for your injured dog.

Laser therapy can address a wide range of physical conditions

The first thing that you should know about laser therapy is that this veterinary service employs the use of varying wavelengths of concentrated light. Unlike other treatment options, laser light is focused on the animal's damaged cells, which works to change their physiology. The type of wavelength used to bring about the physiological changes will depend on the type of damage being addressed. For example, the laser therapy that will be employed for open wounds will not be the same as that utilised to alleviate inflammation. Keeping that in mind, laser therapy veterinary services are a highly versatile treatment option for a wide range of physical conditions such as muscular strains, ligament tears, cuts and more.

Laser therapy is not traumatic for your animal

A common reason why some pet owners may be unsure about enlisting laser therapy veterinary services is that they assume this treatment will be uncomfortable or, worse yet, painful for their animal. And this is a valid concern considering that some diagnostic tests and treatments require your dog to be fully restrained whereas others would mandate that they are sedated. But this is not something to be anxious about when it comes to laser therapy. Unlike some other veterinary services, laser therapy is so non-invasive that your animal will not have to be under general anaesthesia and will not have to be muzzled or restrained by other means. Instead, you can be right there soothing and reassuring your animal by petting or cradling it while it receives its laser therapy.

If your animal needs veterinary services, talk to a vet in your area.
