Newport Harbor Animal Hospital has made a commitment to improving the lives of our companion dogs and cats. One way we are doing this is through therapeutic laser treatment. This treatment allows our Doctors and staff to:
At the most basic level – the infrared light stimulates cells to dilate blood vessels and reduce inflammation.
Virtually every part of the body on a dog and cat may be treated with laser therapy with a couple exceptions: the eyes must be avoided and areas that may contain cancer. Fetuses should also be avoided with laser therapy so let us know if your dog or cat may be pregnant.
Laser therapy averages 3 to 5 minutes per location of treatment. So for our big dogs with hip and knee problems treatment may take up to 20 minutes.
You may see an improvement after just one treatment but more likely after 3 to 4 treatments in chronic conditions.
Treatments are tailored to your pet's specific conditions. Arthritis conditions may be treated three times a week initially until we see a response then once a week to every other week depending on your pet's needs. Wound conditions may benefit from a one-time treatment or daily treatment for 3 consecutive days.
There are no known side effects and this treatment is FDA approved.
