Another recent innovation in veterinary medicine is the use of laser light to alleviate pain and inflammation, and heal wounds. Our veterinarians at Walton Way Veterinary Clinic understand the benefits of this drug and pain-free instrument, and are pleased to offer this advantage to their clients in Augusta and the surrounding CSRA areas.
Many wounds can be treated and healed much faster when laser therapy is utilized. For example, incisions made during surgical procedures heal faster when lasers are used on the area. Other wounds such as a bite from another animal, lick granulomas, and even fractures can be effectively managed with the therapy laser at Walton Way Veterinary Clinic.
Pain management is another excellent application of laser therapy. In the past, osteoarthritis could only be treated with an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug). Today, however, laser therapy is an excellent drug-free alternative that may provide relief without medication.
Our doctors constantly strive to ensure that only the safest and most effective treatments are provided at Walton Way, and the Companion Therapy Laser completely fits that description. If your pet has a wound or painful condition and you would like to know if laser therapy would benefit them, call one of our compassionate team members and schedule an appointment today!
