Relieving Your Pet’s Pain with Relaxing and Warming Treatments

Bradley Hills Animal Hospital is proud of their continued commitment to providing the most current technological advancements in animal medicine to our patients. This FDA-cleared pain management procedure has more than 40 years of medical research behind it and can assist in decreasing inflammation and discomfort felt by your pet. Laser therapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical and drug-free alternative in treating chronic and acute conditions along with post-surgical pain and inflammation.

Understanding Laser Therapy

The doctor will work with you to develop a Laser Therapy protocol that is customized to meet your pet’s medical needs. While some conditions require a single treatment, others require multiple treatment appointments to provide pain relief for your pet. There are certain medical conditions that use laser therapy as part of a treatment plan in conjunction with other treatments.

During the procedure, light energy, or photons are delivered deep into tissue to increase the body’s production of Adenosine Triphosphate, or ATP, which is the fuel or energy that cells need when repairing or rejuvenating after an injury. Increasing the body’s ATP production results in healthier cells, healthier tissue, and ultimately healthier pets.

A Warming Sensation Leading to Pain Relief

This pain free treatment is performed by skilled Bradley Hills Animal Hospital technicians. As with any new procedure and environment it is not uncommon for your pet to show some nervousness or anxiety prior to the treatment. In most cases the immediate relief felt by the pet after the treatment quickly minimizes any stress that your pet experiences.

During the procedure your pet will experience a warming sensation where the laser is being used. This relaxing procedure is similar to a massage for your pet.

Laser therapy is used to treat a variety of conditions such as:

  • Acute Conditions
  • Allergies
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic Conditions
  • Cuts or Bites

I can't thank you enough for the care you and your staff have provided just in the short while I have been coming to you. Rascal was near death when I brought her in a couple of months ago. She is now a healthy, playful and affectionate cat. Having her back is priceless. - Sharon Germantown, MD
