Laser Therapy

Does your pet suffer from chronic pain? Has a recent surgery or injury slowed your normally active companion down?

At Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon, we believe that when it comes to caring for your cherished companion, you should have as many choices as possible. That’s why we’re pleased to offer laser therapy as part of our comprehensive suite of services. The laser uses painless waves of light to treat areas of the body that are experiencing pain or have suffered trauma. This triggers a natural response without the need for medication or other invasive measures. As a result, 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 standalone therapy or as a complement to other treatment methods. Using a small, handheld device, the doctor or certified Veterinary Technician applies a low level laser to the area on question, stimulating normal cellular function. This results in faster wound healing and enhanced pain relief. Best of all, because laser therapy requires no medication or surgery, there are no harmful side effects.

 

What are the benefits of laser therapy?

  • Anti-Inflammation – Decreases swelling from bruising/inflammation
  • Anti-Pain – Blocks pain by decreasing nerve sensitivity
  • Accelerates Tissue Repair, Cell Growth and Nerve Function
  • Improves Circulation
  • Accelerates Healing and Reduces Scarring

What can laser therapy treat?

Laser therapy can be used to address a broad spectrum of conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Disc Disease
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Cranial Cruciate Ligament
  • Dental Problems
  • Chronic Pain and Inflammation
  • Dermatological Conditions
  • Lick Granulomas

 

How many sessions will my pet need?

Because every animal is different, their response to laser therapy is equally unique. Depending on your loved one’s specific condition, its severity and a number of other determining factors, treatment strategies will vary. For some patients, positive results can be seen after just one session. Others may require a more long-term strategy to achieve the desired outcome. We will provide you with an individual treatment recommendation once we’ve had the opportunity to evaluate your companion’s situation.

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? If so, we invite you to reach out today to learn whether the laser therapy services at Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon could help.

      We have been going to Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon since we got our dog 16 years ago. They have been wonderful to our dog and to our family. About 5 years ago our dog became very sick and we thought we would have to put him down. Dr. Lafond saw us and started talking about her dog when it was sick. Due to talking to her we found out our dog was allergic to penicillin. He was taking a medication due to teeth cleaning which had penicillin in it. If it wasn’t for Dr. Lafond we believe we would have lost him! Due to old age we had to put our beloved Thumper down this past spring. The love and support we got from Dr. Lafond and the staff was more than what we could imagine! Thank you so much for taking such good care of Thumper!

      After receiving denials of same day “urgent” appointments from our current vet (of 6 years) twice in a 6 month period, Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon took care of us and saw our dog in both times of need. We officially will never go anywhere else .

      We have been clients of the Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon for the past 15 years. Our cat, Squeak, has had a prolonged illness for the past 1 1/2 years. We said goodbye to her last week. We want to acknowledge the excellent care we have received from everyone at the clinic. Dr. Gass and his staff have been courteous, helpful and very caring and have gone far out of the way to accommodate our needs. John and Marilyn thank you!

      The staff at Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon are awesome! They cry with you when you have to say good bye to a faithful friend and celebrate with you when you add a new kitten to the family. I have had excellent care for my cats over the last 30 years.

      From the moment I called to make an appointment to the moment I left, I felt the staff, vet techs, and veterinarian were some of the most genuine people I have ever met. Not only was my cat calm (never happens) but they explained everything up front and were super kind and understanding. So blessed to have taken a leap and went with Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon!
