Nashville pet owners – Southside Animal Hospital offers pet laser therapy, a non-invasive, pain-free treatment that helps to reduce inflammation, decrease pain and aid in healing.
The laser emits light energy (photons) into the tissues, which causes chemical changes to the cells. Those chemical changes cause energy production and stimulation of the cellular tissue, resulting in increased blood flow to areas of injury, increased lymphatic drainage and ultimately decreased inflammation and pain.
Laser treatment is administered through a non-invasive handheld device. Treatment times are typically less than 5 minutes. There is no clipping of fur, no painful manipulations and no known side effects of treatment. Southside Animal Hospital veterinarians and vet staff and your pet will wear protective eyewear during treatments.
Southside Animal Hospital may recommend laser therapy as part of a larger treatment protocol. It is often combined with other treatment methods that your pet may already be receiving to further enhance the optimal outcome.
Our veterinarians and vet staff are using laser therapy to assist in recovery from pet surgeries.
You can purchase laser therapy treatments in packages - talk with our staff and we can recommend a laser therapy treatment plan that works for your pet.
