The Doctors and staff and Dreaming Summit Animal Hospital are pleased to announce the addition of a class IV therapeutic laser to our office. It is being used to treat a large variety of conditions in our canine and feline patients.

The concept of laser therapy provides “photobiomodulation” or in layman’s terms - the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic affects. These affects include; improved healing time post operatively, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.

Laser therapy has been widely utilized in Europe by physical therapists, nurses, and doctors since the 1970’s. Now, after the FDA clearance in 2002, laser therapy is being used extensively in the United States and now here at Dreaming Summit Animal Hospital.

Laser therapy can help with a wide range of conditions:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Joint Pain
  • Tendinopathies (Tendonitis)
  • Edema and Congestion
  • Ligament Sprains
  • Muscle Strains
  • Puncture Wounds
  • Post-traumatic Injuries
  • Post Surgical Pain
  • Neck and Back Pain
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Burns
  • Chronic wounds suck as lick granulomas
  • Rehabilitation
  • Post-orthopedic surgical recovery

Treatment regimes vary, but typically we see our patients on a decreasing treatment schedule. We treat conditions three times in the first week, two times the second week and once in the third week. After that, patients are treated as needed. Sessions are quick, painless, and require no sedation.

If laser therapy sounds like something you may be interested in, either to treat a new issue, or perhaps as an adjunct to giving chronic medications, please give us a call. We will be pleased to go over everything in detail.
