Laser Therapy for Dogs and Cats in Jacksonville & Orange Park
The need for pain management in humans is not a new concept. We know where we hurt and can tell our doctor about the pain. However, when you pet is in pain, it is much more complicated. It takes the experience and expertise of a veterinarian to diagnose the cause and develop an appropriate treatment plan. At PrimeVET, our veterinarians offer laser therapy for dogs and cats in Jacksonville & Orange Park, which is the latest technology in pain management. After identifying and isolating the pain, deep-penetrating wavelengths of light are used to accelerate your pet's natural healing process and release endorphins for almost immediate pain relief.
How Does Laser Therapy Work?
Laser therapy alleviates pain and inflammation, reduces swelling, and stimulates nerve regeneration and cells involved in tissue repair. A handheld laser device is applied to the target area while the cat or dog is lying down. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body and absorbed by injured cells. Since the cells are stimulated, they respond with a higher rate of metabolism. This reduces the pain in the treated area and speeds the healing process of damaged cells, thereby speeding up your pet's recovery process. Acute conditions can subside quickly but your veterinarian will be able to provide reasonable expectations based on your pet's condition. Pet owners are more than welcome to be present during their pet's laser therapy treatments.
