MAYFAIR ANIMAL HOSPITAL is proud and excited to provide your pets with this advanced Class IV laser technology for clinical applications in pain management, wound healing, reduced inflammation/swelling/edema and rehabilitation.
Pain management, reduction in the inflammatory process, increased speed of healing and many other benefits may be achieved by the use of Class IV therapeutic laser therapy.
Laser Therapy (photomodulation) is the use of specific wavelengths of light on various parts of the body to achieve therapeutic effects. This photobiological reaction helps stimulate tissue regeneration, improve healing time, increase circulation, decrease swelling and reduce pain.
There is no sedation or special restraint required for the treatment and pets are very relaxed and comfortable during the entire process. Treatments vary in length and time depending on the condition being treated. In many instances we recommend a series of treatments lasting usually 2-8 minutes over a defined period of time. Many pets will exhibit increased comfort and improved mobility within 12-24 hours after laser treatments.
Laser therapy for these and many other conditions have proven to be an effective treatment for many cases of acute and chronic pain, rehabilitation, inflammatory conditions and wound healing.
There is no discomfort during the laser therapy process. Your pet may feel a little warmth at the treatment area.
There are virtually no associated risks with laser therapy. Occasionally a pet may experience aggravation at the injury or condition site as the laser stimulates the affected tissues. This usually resolves within 12-24 hours.
Besides the therapeutic advantages of the laser therapy, other benefits include a non-invasive, non-surgical approach to many conditions, no sedation required during the treatment process, the reduction and possible elimination of some medications, very little if any adverse affects and many times immediate results are achieved which allows a more rapid return to normal activity and function.
