Idaho Vet Hospital is excited to bring a special technology to you! Cold laser therapy is proven to bio-stimulate tissue repair while reducing treatment time and relieving pain and inflammation. All without sedation!
When it comes to pain management for your pet, Laser therapy creates optimal healing conditions and increases healing circulation to help get them back on their paws faster, this treatment dramatically helps to decrease inflammation, and pain.
The cold laser therapy is a noninvasive procedure that uses light to stimulate cells and increase blood circulation. At the correct laser wavelength, pain signals are reduced and nerve sensitivity decreases. The procedure also releases endorphins, or natural painkillers, however it is not recommended for animals that have cancer because the device can stimulate blood flow to cancer cells.
The procedure is based on the idea that light is absorbed into the cells. The process, known as photo-biotherapy, stimulates protein synthesis and cell metabolism, which improves cell health and functionality.
If you think that your pet is a good candidate for laser therapy, call our office at 208-466-4614 and our receptionist will be happy to set up a consultation appointment with you.
