Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is now available at PVS. Laser therapy is a surgery free, drug free, noninvasive treatment to reduce pain, reduce inflammation and increase speed of healing by inducing a biological response in the cells called "photo-bio-modulation". Laser therapy uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it. The laser light is delivered through a noninvasive hand piece to treat the affected area. Your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth. Most treatments take a matter of minutes. Laser therapy can be used to enhance other treatment plans recommended by your veterinarian. Laser therapy has been scientifically proven to be successful in treating post-surgical pain and many acute and chronic conditions, such as wounds, allergies, infections, cuts/bites, inflammation, sprains, strains and fractures, post-surgical healing & pain relief, degenerative joint disease, inflammatory bowel disease, lick granulomas, geriatric care, hip dysplasia, feline acne, tendonitis, arthritis and otitis to name a few.
