We Offer Laser Therapy
Pet laser therapy is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment that helps to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and promote healing. Here’s how it works: during laser therapy, an intense beam of light is used to penetrate deeply into tissue. This light stimulates the cells in your pet’s body, increasing circulation and prompting a healing response. As a result of this, your pet experiences a reduction in both pain and inflammation. We proudly use the Companion® brand laser, one of the most advanced veterinary tools available, for our laser therapy sessions.
Benefits of Laser Therapy for Pets
Laser therapy has been used to provide relief to pets suffering from a variety of conditions, including:
- Degenerative joint disease
- Lick granulomas
- Neurological conditions
- Other conditions that result in inflammation
- Sprains, strains, and fractures that don’t require surgery
Many additional benefits accompany pet laser therapy. Treatments are non-invasive and pain-free. In fact, the penetrating light creates a warm, soothing sensation with most pets experiencing immediate pain relief after treatment begins. Therapy sessions are typically short, lasting no longer than a few minutes and cause no known side-effects.
Pet Chiropractic Care
Just as with humans, pet chiropractic care involves adjusting the joints using the hands or special instruments. We are pleased to have a veterinarian on staff who is certified by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association (AVCA) to offer this service for our patients. During your pet’s chiropractor exam at our Jeffersonville animal hospital, we’ll examine their gait and conduct a neurological exam, which helps us determine the best course of treatment. We’ll also discuss their medical history and any previous x-rays or tests.
Pet chiropractic care can treat:
- Bowel disorders
- Muscle spasms
- Neck or back pain
- Post-surgical care
- Sports injuries
