Laser Therapy

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

At Taylorsville Veterinary Clinic, 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 animals, 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 four-legged 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 Taylorsville Veterinary Clinic could help.

      I have used these docs for many years and have found that, although the doctors rotate in and out with regularity, the main vet tech is always there and helpful kind and happy. The beauty of having young doctors is they can be very honest and really feel for you in the hard times. They let you decide what you want after they advise. Also I can get an appt in the next day or so or even sooner in emergencies.

      Dr Megan Bray is amazing. She has seen our Bella during her entire battle with ectopic ureter and then chronic kidney failure. Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to Bella about 2 weeks ago and despite how difficult the experience was she was very empathetic and just as sad to say goodbye. We are proud to call her our vet and always recommend her and the entire team to others.

      We have been using Taylorsville Vet Clinic for over 13 years and they are the best! They took care of our first Golden Retriever for 11 years. They always gave us sound, professional advise and guidance as we maneuvered through, Lymes disease, Hypothyrodism, Arthritis and finally, with great sensitivity, cancer and the final decision to have our girl put to sleep. We now have a new Golden and they have already had to deal with a life-threatening situation with her! Once again, Dr. Sutton has clearly explained our options and helped us make the best decision for our dog. I appreciate that they treat me with respect as a pet owner by giving me all the options available, from conservative to more preemptive/proactive approach- never judging my final decision. As long as I have a pet, I will be taking them to Taylorsville Vet Clinic and I will recommend them to anyone with confidence.
