Help your pet heal with laser therapy. NSVH offers many modalities to assist in reducing pain and moving the healing process along. Laser therapy is a surgery free, drug free, source of relief for your pet.

Therapy lasers have been scientifically proven and successful in treating many chronic and acute conditions and offers post-surgical pain relief. The beneficial effects of laser light on tissue were first recognized almost forty years ago. Since then, there have been thousands of studies documenting the positive effects laser light has on different types of cells, tissue, and disorders. Proven clinical studies and real-world use have proven that laser therapy alleviates pain and inflammation, reduces swelling, stimulates nerve regeneration and cells involved in tissue repair. There are no known side effects with this treatment.

Simply put, laser therapy provides relief and administration is easy. The patient’s fur does not need to be clipped and for safety, the eyes of the animal will be directed away from the treatment area or covered with a towel or eye wear. Eye protection will be worn by the laser operator and anyone in a close proximity, including the pet owner. The doctor or technician will move the probe over the treatment area to assure the laser is being delivered to the area which needs improvement. As the laser light is delivered through a small hand-piece, your pet will feel a gentle and soothing warmth. Often as the laser is administered, many pets will relax and almost immediate relief of pain will allow your pet to be comfortable. Any anxiety that your pet may have initially experienced will often dissipate quickly.

Based on the pet’s condition, treatment protocols are uniquely designed to allow most benefit. Therefore, treatments will vary in time, complexity, and cost. For some chronic patients, multiple joints will be treated during one laser treatment session. When appropriate, laser therapy can be used as a complementary adjunct to other modalities and treatment plans.
