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.

      When my clinic of many years couldn't get me in with both of my cats who needed to be seen, this clinic took care of me. Both Dr Gass and Dr LaFond were caring and wonderful. A great atmosphere with very kind receptionist and technicians. I am very appreciative and found myself a new clinic.

      We’ve been bringing our fur babies here through many generations of kitties and personnel. They treat us and our cats as though we are family and friends. And who wouldn’t love a vet named Dr.Barker!?
      Last visit had our wonderful Casey Cat with a dental issue. As I’m in dentistry myself I was very pleased that my first encounter with Dr.Jesse Hermès had her explaining in detail what the issue was and the remedy she had to render. It was easy to tell she loves her work and our furry friends!
      Drs. Gass and Lafond are also high on my list of caring vets through the years of advice and kindness they’ve displayed caring for our furry companions. And the fact that their staff has been there for years is a testament to it being a great place to work! Thanks to you all and many Happy Purrs sent your way!

      We recently welcomed a new puppy into our family. Without hesitation we contacted Dr Gass to see our pet due to the compassionate, thorough care he gave our last dog. Dr Gass and his team have earned our complete trust — thank you for always going above and beyond! We highly recommend this clinic!
