Laser Therapy

Laser therapy (photobiomodulation therapy) is a great addition to your pet’s care and helps treat many different conditions. The laser used for these treatments is considered a non-thermal laser; meaning it does not emit significant heat and can not do any cutting of the tissue like a surgical laser.

The laser emits a light that works deep inside the cell, in the mitochondria, to reduce pain and inflammation while promoting faster healing to lesions or wounds. Here at Wildwood we use the laser in many different situations listed below.

It is an option following many of our surgical procedures

  • Spay
  • Neuter
  • Cystotomy
  • Orthopedic surgeries
  • Laceration repairs
  • Many others

It is also an option for numerous medical conditions

  • Otitis (ear infections)
  • Stomatitis (oral infection or inflammation of gums)
  • Skin infections
  • Arthritis
  • Burns
  • Soft tissue trauma
  • Sprains/Strains
  • Chronic pain
  • IVDD (Intervertebral Disc Disease)
  • Abscesses
  • Lick granulomas
  • Rehabilitation – post surgery or trauma injury

Most pets benefit from more than one laser therapy session and our veterinarians will help you decide how often your pet should have a session and how long your pet should continue laser therapy.

The initial laser visit is with the veterinarian but the follow-up sessions are often with a technician. We also offer laser therapy packages for those needing several recurring visits or benefit from repeated therapy. This allows for a savings with repeat visits.
