Laser therapy isn’t quite as new as many people think. First used in the 1970s, it has continued to evolve and improve and today, it has now been certified for use in both medical and veterinary use. This minimally-invasive treatment is now being utilized in veterinary medicine in a variety of different ways, enabling your pet to experience all of the benefits associated with this technique.
We are pleased to be able to offer both surgical and cold laser therapy here at our veterinary medical facility in Live Oak, CA.
Laser therapy is a very safe and effective treatment that takes high-energy beams of light and directs them into your pet’s body. Depending on the type of laser used this can either be to make scalpel-free incisions by destroying tissue in order to perform surgeries, or to produce something known as ATP cellular energy which your pet’s body will then use to repair damaged cells. This expedites healing and reduces pain and inflammation.
