Laser Services for your pet

 Veterinarians across the country are finding out the benefits of providing this innovative service and pet owners are learning how much faster their pet recovers. Watch this video to learn more about laser therapy for dogs and cats and the benefits of cold laser therapy at animal hospitals. 

Laser Therapy for Dogs & Cats

 Conventional Laser therapy has been in use for more than 25 years.  It has been demonstrated that it is not toxic and it has no side effects. Today, it is used as a monotherapy or as a complementary therapy.  We are pleased to provide Patients with the most advanced technology available today to leverage the benefits associated with laser therapy: MLS Harmony Therapy. 

MLS Harmony Therapy

MLS Therapy is a new therapy for treating pain, inflammation, and edema and for repairing superficial lesions.  It was developed to overcome the limits of traditional Laser therapy, based on the use of diode lasers.  Currently, no diode laser is able to induce strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema and analgesic effects simultaneously and within a short period of time.  Continuous Laser emissions act fast on inflammation, stimulating blood and lymphatic circulation and inducing fast re-absorption of fluids; however, they only have a secondary effect on pain, which is diminished after reducing the inflammatory process.  There are so many reasons to use Cold Laser Therapy.  Pulsed Laser emissions, on the other hand, have an immediate effect on pain, since they are able to produce analgesia, interfering with the very transmission of the pain impulse to the higher brain centers, but they are less effective at treating inflammation and edema, only achieving results after a long period of application.  MLS Therapy is able to overcome the limits imposed by selecting one of the two emission types, since it is based on the characteristic therapeutic properties of a new Laser pulse.  It uses an MLS pulse, which combines and synchronizes emission of continuous and pulsed Laser emissions with different infrared wavelengths.  The patented control system that generates the MLS pulse synchronizes the two emissions.

Thanks to this characteristic synchronization, the various therapeutic effects – anti-inflammatory and anti-edema of the continuous emission and analgesic of the pulsed emission –not only take place at the same time but reciprocally reinforce each other.  Because of this, MLS therapy is able to guarantee effectiveness and short treatment times when treating numerous osteo-muscular system diseases and when repairing superficial lesions.

Surgical Laser

Surgical lasers have become a very important part of Veterinary medicine in our Animal Hospital. The advent of the surgical laser has improved the treatment of many disease states previously treated with a scalpel or electrosurgical unit. The laser provides the surgeon with improved hemostasis while significantly reducing the pain and swelling due to its unique properties. Cold Laser Therapy is a great choice for laser therapy for dogs or cats. 

Using endoscopic, laparoscopic, and other minimally invasive methods, fiber directed laser energy (Diode and Ho:YAG) has been used to treat diseases of the upper and lower GI tract, including benign polyps, gastric ulcers, and intestinal neoplasia. 

 For most general practitioners the CO2 generated wavelength of energy provides the greatest application in soft tissue cases with the least negative impact on surrounding tissue. Diode generated wavelengths have more limited soft tissue handling parameters but have the advantage of being functional in a fluid environment or through endoscopic application. Ho: YAG generated wavelength energy is used primarily for minimally invasive urological techniques for ablation of bladder, urethral, and prostatic pathological conditions in small animals.
