Therapeutic Laser Treatments for Pets
Laser Therapy for Pets in Westport, MA
Acoaxet Veterinary Clinic is proud to offer laser therapy, a treatment for pets that reduces pain and inflammation, and decreases the recovery time for your pet. Laser therapy is a CO2 laser beam that deeply penetrates tissue without damaging it. The laser light induces a biological response in the cells which facilitates healing and most treatments take only a matter of minutes.
Benefits of Laser Surgery
The laser seals small blood vessels as it cuts, drastically reducing the amount of bleeding that occur. This also enables us to perform a number of new surgical procedures that are not practical with a conventional scalpel.
The CO2 laser beam seals nerve endings and as it cuts, resulting in less edema and pain. The patient experiences a far more comfortable post-operative recovery.
Reduced Risk of Infection
This is one of the unique features of the CO2 laser beam. It efficiently kills bacteria in its path, producing a sterilizing effect.
Quicker Recovery Time
Reduced risk of infection, less bleeding, less pain and less swelling often allow the patient a far quicker recovery after the surgery.
Laser therapy has been scientifically proven to be successful in treating post-surgical pain and many other physical conditions. Please speak with us if you feel your pet would benefit from laser therapy or if you have any questions about the treatment process.
