Pyramid Veterinary Hospital is proud to offer a Companion Laser Therapy system: a Class IV cold laser. Laser therapy works via a process called photobiomodulation (PBM). When a sufficient dose of light energy reaches the targeted tissue, there is decreased inflammation, decreased pain, and accelerated healing. Laser therapy has many applications for use including:
- healing of infections, burns, and wounds
- relief of pain and inflammation secondary to acute injury or chronic conditions such as arthritis
- healing tooth extraction sites
- healing incision sites post operatively
Depending on the condition we are treating, laser therapy is generally most effective with a series of treatments. You and your veterinarian will discuss the best solution for your pet’s situation.
