What is laser therapy?
Laser therapy is the application of a coherent light. The laser light consists of multiple light waves in which all the waves support one another. Laser therapy is a holistic, non-invasive, effective way to treat and manage many different conditions.
How does laser therapy work?
The laser beam stimulates the cells and tissue to be healthy. It also reduces inflammation so that healing can begin. By reducing inflammation, the laser is also a great tool for helping to minimize the pain of many chronic conditions, like arthritis.
What will my animal feel when receiving the laser treatments?
Laser therapy is a painless application of healing light. You animal might feel a slight tingling as the light enters the tissue and cells, but it is very minimal if at all.
How long will each treatment take?
The treatment time depends on how chronic the condition is and the depth the laser light needs to reach and be effective. However, almost all treatments will be between two and ten minutes.
How many treatments will my animal need?
The number of treatments can vary greatly based on the condition, but many pet owners notice a positive difference within three or four treatments.
What are the costs of the treatments?
At Powell Veterinary Services the charge can be a one-time charge of $33.00 as of June 1, 2015 or a four treatment package for $119.50. These services are covered by most pet insurance policies. Ask us about Embrace Pet Insurance!! More affordable than you might think!
