Laser Therapy

Did your pet recently undergo surgery or suffer an injury? Is a chronic condition causing your companion pain or reduced mobility?

If you answered yes to either of these questions, laser therapy might be the perfect solution. The therapeutic laser has been proven to be highly effective in reducing pain, restoring improved range of motion and speeding the healing process. Most importantly, it is a treatment method that is drug-free and completely non-invasive. This makes it one of the safest, most effective ways to address and manage illness and injury. In our effort to provide our clients with the most innovative options, The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt is pleased to offer laser therapy.

What is laser therapy?

Laser therapy uses certain wavelengths of light to produce a therapeutic effect within the body. When the laser comes into contact with an area that has been injured or suffered trauma, the body produces a natural healing response. The result is a marked decrease in pain, improvement in mobility and function, and a faster recovery following injury or surgery. Laser therapy is an excellent option for pets because it’s painless, non-invasive, drug-free and does not cause side effects.

What can laser therapy treat?

It seems we are discovering new uses for the therapeutic laser almost daily. As of now, we can leverage this powerful and effective technology to treat and manage any of the following:

  • Acute and chronic pain
    Muscle, joint, ligament and tendon injuries
    Joint Pain
    Dermatological Conditions
    Dental Problems
    Post-surgical pain and recovery
    Sprains and strains
    Much more…

How many laser treatments will my pet need?

Your pet is unique, as is the type and severity of the condition being addressed. While one or two sessions may be enough to achieve the desired results for one patient, another may require a longer-term strategy. Determining how many sessions your pet will need will require an evaluation by one of our doctors. Once we’ve had the opportunity to examine your pet, we’ll provide you with an individualized treatment recommendation.

If your pet recently had an operation, was injured or suffers from a painful medical condition, give us a call. Laser therapy may provide the relief he or she deserves.

Feedback from our clients

  • "I have been taking my 16 year old lab, Oscar, to this vet since he came to me in 2004, and I wouldn't take any of my dogs anywhere else! They are so wonderful with both pets and people. I would recommend any of the doctors and staff to anyone."

  • "We have been going to another vet for years. We wanted to have our year old Wheaten Terrier, Rylee spayed by laparoscopy so she would have less pain and be back to her usual activity in 2-3 days instead of 10-14 days. Our vet does the traditional spay. We had a consult meet and greet with Dr. Courtney Pierce. She answered all our questions and so friendly and professional. They have a state of the art OR suite. Rylee did great. On post op day three she spotted a squirrel and did an all out chase with no ill effects! All the staff were great."

  • "I love Dr. Jernigan at AHLB and would never take my dog anywhere else! The staff is excellent with animals and always professional, courteous and respectful to owners. I have trusted this animal hospital for all of my dog's care, including check ups, surgeries (she's had three!) and for boarding when we have to go out of town. Every experience I have had here has been wonderful and I highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a veterinary office for their furry children!."
