Laser Therapy

Bracebridge Animal HospitalĀ are pleased to be able to offer therapy laser. Our laser can be used to help pets heal very quickly following injury or to help relieve the debilitating effects of arthritis and other chronic diseases. Your pets deserve the best available treatment within the veterinary field when it comes to diagnosing and treating any and all kinds of illness or injury that may arise.

Our therapy laser works through a process called photobiomodulation: this is a process in which laser energy in the form of invisible laser light rays (“photo”) are used to stimulate tissues at a cellular level (“bio”) causing an increase in cellular activity (“modulation”). This results in three major beneficial clinical results for the patient:

  1. Pain Reduction
  2. Inflammation Reduction – including swelling, edema and bruising
  3. Accelerated Tissue Healing

Additionally there are benefits to helping control and reduce free radical production, increasing collagen production, increasing protein and enzyme function and increasing oxygen and nutrient availability to the affected regions.

Our therapy laser can even stimulate acupuncture and acupressure points. However, the most amazing attribute of this laser is that it causes no discomfort to your pet!

Our therapy laser can be used to help with chronic conditions such as the following:

  • Osteoarthritis and joint issues
  • Skin and ear issues
  • Back and neck pain
  • Urinary bladder issues
  • Non-healing wounds and calluses
  • Oral and sinus concerns
  • Other disorders

It can even be used with acute injuries and illnesses such as “hot spots”, sprains, fractures, knee ligament injuries, disc disease, anal sac problems, etc. Studies show that the therapy laser helps tissues heal faster by 30% to 50%!
