Laser Therapy

Does your pet suffer from chronic pain? Has a recent surgery or injury slowed your normally active companion down?

At Animal Medical Center of Bel Air, we believe that when it comes to caring for your cherished companion, you should have as many choices as possible. That’s why we’re pleased to offer laser therapy as part of our comprehensive suite of services. The laser uses painless waves of light to treat areas of the body that are experiencing pain or have suffered trauma. This triggers a natural response without the need for medication or other invasive measures. As a result, your loved one can enjoy decreased pain, enhanced mobility and shorter recovery periods.

 

What is veterinary laser therapy?

Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive form of treatment which stimulates the body’s natural healing and pain control response. It can be used as a standalone therapy or as a complement to other treatment methods. Using a small, handheld device, the doctor applies a low level laser to the area on question, stimulating normal cellular function. This results in faster wound healing and enhanced pain relief. Best of all, because laser therapy requires no medication or surgery, there are no harmful side effects.

 

What are the benefits of laser therapy?

  • Anti-Inflammation – Decreases swelling from bruising/inflammation
  • Anti-Pain – Blocks pain by decreasing nerve sensitivity
  • Accelerates Tissue Repair, Cell Growth and Nerve Function
  • Improves Circulation
  • Accelerates Healing and Reduces Scarring

What can laser therapy treat?

Laser therapy can be used to address a broad spectrum of conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Disc Disease
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Cranial Cruciate Ligament
  • Dental Problems
  • Chronic Pain and Inflammation
  • Dermatological Conditions
  • Lick Granulomas

 

How many sessions will my pet need?

Because every pet is different, their response to laser therapy is equally unique. Depending on your loved one’s specific condition, its severity and a number of other determining factors, treatment strategies will vary. For some patients, positive results can be seen after just one session. Others may require a more long-term strategy to achieve the desired outcome. We will provide you with an individual treatment recommendation once we’ve had the opportunity to evaluate your companion’s situation.

Does your animal family member suffer from a chronic medical condition, like arthritis? Has a recent injury or surgery negatively impacted your companion’s lifestyle or quality of life? If so, we invite you to reach out today to learn whether the laser therapy services at Animal Medical Center of Bel Air could help.

      I took a poodle/mutt guy that got bite in nose and mouth (thru the fence) by a neighbors pit/rotty. Blackie was crying sitting in one spot of the yard. Blood coming from nose and mouth. He was make a snorting sound like swallowing blood. I didn’t know how bad bite was or if serve.

      I googled and called and ladies said bring him in. We were both scared. When I arrived at vet office ladies were great. Gentleman working there were super nice and kind to me and Blackie.

      The vet (male vet) was very nice and checked Blackie. We left with pain meds and antibodies.

      Blackie was hurt bad thank goodness. The staff and vet were great.

      We love Dr. Esra and her team at the Animal Medical Center. "We" meaning both of us humans, and our menagerie of pups and cats. The docs and staff are kind, gentle and caring, and have all the latest technology as well as the best natural & alternative techniques to keep our furry loved ones healthy. After moving farther away, we still drive up to Belair to patronize Dr. Esra's place, because trust and integrity don't have a zip code! They are great.
