Class IV Therapeutic Laser
We are excited to offer your pets laser therapy using Companion’s Class IV laser. Laser therapy provides a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment that can treat a variety of conditions and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatment protocols. Relief and/or improvement are often noticed within hours depending on the condition and your pet’s unique health status. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your companion can benefit from this innovative approach to treating pain.
Kona has hepatitis - so I avoid the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that I would usually use for a dog with his level of arthritis. He takes Cosequin, MSM, Adequan, Welactin (fish oil), turmeric, a slew of liver supplements, and occasionally tramadol for pain. I'm so happy to have a treatment modality I can add to his therapeutic regimen that is safe for his old liver and will help his old joints.
I would highly recommend giving our new laser therapy a try for your dog or cat with pain. It might help - especially in cases where our drug choices are limited due to existing medical conditions.
How Does it Work?
Laser therapy stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body for about 3 to 8 minutes and absorbed by the injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism. This results in relief from pain, increased circulation, reduced inflammation, and an acceleration of the healing process.
