In 2017, we purchased our very own K-Laser Therapeutic Laser.  The majority of our Surgical procedures receive a laser treatment on their incisions after they are sutured closed.

Therapeutic Effects

The painless application of laser energy promotes increased circulation by drawing oxygen and nutrients to the affected area.  This creates an optimal healing environment reducing inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain.  As the injured area returns to normal, pain is relieved and function is restored.

What to Expect

There is no patient sedation or restraint required and the experience is usually pleasant and comforting to them.  K-Laser Therapy treatments are cumulative in nature.  The length and frequency of treatments varies with your pet’s condition.  Even though improvement may be seen after the first visit, most patients require 3-8 for greatest benefit, and we recommend a multi-visit treatment plan.  Most sites require 3-8 minutes per treatment.

A sample treatment schedule is as follows:

  • Every other day for one week (3 total)
  • Twice the second week
  • Once the third week
  • Boosters as needed

Your veterinarian will recommend a treatment plan specific to your pet’s condition.
