Does your four-legged family member suffer from a chronic medical condition, like arthritis? Has a recent injury or surgery negatively impacted your companion’s lifestyle or quality of life?
At Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon, we’re pleased to offer laser therapy as part of our comprehensive services to provide more treatment options for your companion. Our noninvasive therapy laser uses painless waves of light to trigger a natural response to treat areas of the body that are experiencing pain or trauma. With laser therapy, your loved one can enjoy decreased pain, enhanced mobility and shorter recovery periods.
What is veterinary laser therapy?
Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive form of treatment which stimulates the body’s natural healing and pain control response. It can be used as a solitary therapy or in combination with other treatment methods. Using a small, handheld device, our doctors or certified veterinary technicians apply a low level laser to a specific area on your pet, stimulating cellular function. Because laser therapy is not a medication or surgery, there are no harmful side effects.

How many sessions will my pet need?
For some patients, positive results can be seen with just one session! Because every pet is unique and can respond differently to laser therapy, your loved one may require a more long-term strategy to achieve a desired outcome. Depending on your pet’s specific condition, its severity and other factors, treatment strategies vary. Our doctors at Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon can provide you with a customized treatment plan once we’ve had the opportunity to evaluate your companion’s situation.
