We have the most powerful machines on the market
With over 8 years of Laser therapy experience we are on our third generation machines.
 
Laser therapy provides a  drug-free, pain-free, surgery- free treatment which is used to treat a variety of injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions, numerous dermatological problems, and pain. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your companion will benefit from this revolutionary new approach to Veterinary medicine. 
 
Laser therapy is the only course of treatment that actually stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body and absorbed by the injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism. This results in increased circulation in the body, an anti-inflammatory reaction, relief from pain and an acceleration of the healing process.
This new class IV Therapeutic Laser is the most advanced small animal laser on the market.  The breakthrough of the multiwave system offers greater benefit to the patient that any one wavelength alone.  Our new laser service has been FDA approved!
 
The actual treatment is prescribed by the veterinarian after a physical exam and consultation with the owner. A  veterinary technician will carry out the treatment, with the owner present. The treatment takes 10 – 20 minutes and requires no sedation.  Several sessions may be needed to obtained the desired results. 
 
 
Some of the Conditions that benefit:
Arthritis
Acute & Chronic Pain
Back Injuries
Sprains & Strains
Inflammation & Edema
Wound healing
Sprain/ Strain
Post-surgery
Bruises

  More about the Science behind the laser.....

Until now, the challenge with Laser Therapy has been its inability to treat deep-seeded problems, since it is used with low to medium power.   The new Class IV laser therapy was developed to overcome the limits of traditional Laser therapy, based on the use of diode lasers.  Currently, no diode laser is able to induce strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema and analgesic effects simultaneously and within a short period of time.  Continuous Laser emissions act fast on inflammation, stimulating blood and lymphatic circulation and inducing fast re-absorption of fluid build-ups; however, they only have a secondary effect on pain, which is diminished after reducing the inflammatory process.  Pulsed Laser emissions, on the other hand, have an immediate effect on pain, since they are able to produce analgesia, interfering with the very transmission of the pain impulse to the higher brain centers, but they are less effective at treating inflammation and edema, only achieving results after a long period of application. New class IV Lasers are able to overcome the limits imposed by selecting one of the two emission types, since it is based on the characteristic therapeutic properties of a new Laser pulse.  It combines and synchronizes emission of continuous and pulsed Laser emissions with different infared wavelengths and synchronizes the two emissions.
