When you are the owner of a precious pet, you become responsible for making all of the decisions regarding her care. In the event that she suffers from ill health, you will find that you will have to make some choices
about the way that she is treated. Unfortunately, if you don’t know a great deal about your options, this can be a confusing and daunting process. After all, you want to ensure that you choose the best possible treatment that will enable her to recover and live the longest, healthiest and more active life possible.
Laser therapy has transformed the way in which many veterinary procedures are performed, removing the need for manually-created incisions, increasing the accuracy with which surgeries are performed, reducing damage to surrounding tissues and minimizing the risk of post-operative infections and other complications.
One form of laser therapy that has shown to be particularly beneficial is K-Laser therapy for pets. We are delighted to be able to offer this service at our modern, comfortable veterinary clinic in Evansville, IN. In the meantime, here is everything that you need to know about K-Laser therapy for pets.
What is K-Laser therapy?
K-Laser therapy utilizes specific wavelengths of red and near-infrared light to stimulate the natural healing processes within your pet’s body. It does this by increasing circulation and therefore drawing additional oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that facilitates the reduction of inflammation, swelling, stiffness, muscle spasms and pain that your pet might otherwise be experiencing. Healing is expedited and full function and mobility is swiftly restored so that your pet can get back to enjoying a happy, active and pain-free life.
When is Laser-K used?
K-Laser has shown to be beneficial in a number of areas of veterinary care. There are three key areas in which is it used. These are:
Most owners dislike the idea of their pet taking prescription pain relief. Fortunately, K-Laser can offer a natural, non-invasive alternative to medication.
All wounds require time to heal. However, K-Laser therapy can substantially reduce healing time while also improving the quality of surrounding tissue so that it is stronger and there is less scarring.
Certain types of injury and surgery require pets to have rehabilitation services such as physical therapy and massage to make the best possible recovery. Laser-K can assist with your pet’s rehabilitation, enabling her to recovery quicker.
What are the benefits of choosing Laser-K therapy for your pet?
There are a range of advantages to choosing Laser-K therapy for your pet. These include:
Reduced pain and inflammation
Increased joint flexibility
Targeted focus means minimal or no trauma to surrounding tissues
Short, painless treatment sessions
A delayed need for medical intervention
