Laser therapy is used to treat a wide range of inflammatory and painful conditions, as well as to stimulate wound healing in companion animals, exotics, and horses.
Lasers are often an effective alternative to NSAIDs, reducing pain and inflammation quickly, by significantly decreasing inflammatory mediators, stimulating tissue perfusion and metabolism.
Many clients prefer MLS Class 4 laser therapy to treat their pets as there are no side effects, and the clinical benefits are quickly seen for a wide range of inflammatory and painful conditions.
Indications are numerous and include :
Cystitis/visceral pain and inflammation
Anal gland disease
Post-op dental treatment
Class 4 Lasers are more powerful than Class 3, enabling much quicker treatment times, which also means we can treat several areas in the same session. The MLS laser is the safest Class 4 laser system: The unique pulsed and continuous synchronised wavelengths produce a peak power of 75W, ensuring deeper tissues receive the maximum therapeutic effect, whilst allowing heat to dissipate between pulses, so superficial tissues do not overheat.
The lasers are used either by Rebecca as part of a tailor-made physiotherapy programme or by our fully trained vet nurses for other conditions. Treatments usually last 20-30 mins and you get to stay and wear some really cool glasses!
