Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive, and drug-free therapy used to treat a variety of injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions, dermatological problems, and pain. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, there is a good chance they will benefit from this revolutionary new approach to pain management.

Laser therapy focuses red and infrared light on tissue at and below the surface of the skin. The light energizes the cells, producing a structural protein called collagen used to repair tissue. Lasers continue to promote healing by supporting vascular dilation and synthesis, increasing blood circulation to the affected region. The stimulation also releases the body’s own pain-relieving hormones and enhances the body’s ability to heal itself.

Conditions improved with laser therapy:

· Hip dysplasia

· Wound and tissue healing

· Ear infections

· Cystitis

· Dental inflammation

· Arthritis and degenerative joint disease

· Musculoskeletal injuries

· Neuromuscular disease

Treatments are a safe and relaxing experience for pets! Laser therapy is normally combined with other types of veterinary medicine including pharmaceutical regimens and alternative treatments.

COVID-19 Update for Our Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care Family

Effective June 25th, 2020

Even though we have resumed full services and restrictions are starting to ease in our region, the coronavirus is still present and a serious concern. For that reason, we feel it is in the best interests of our team and clients to continue curbside care for the foreseeable future.

This means we will continue to limit access to our hospital to Woodley Gardens team members and client pets only, and our doctors will communicate with you via ZOOM conference during the appointment, or on the phone right after your pet’s appointment. If you use the ZOOM app, you can see your pet during the appointment. You can view our complete curbside protocol here.

We will also continue to maintain rigorous cleaning protocols, strict hand-washing procedures, and a mandatory stay-at-home policy for any staff member who is feeling ill. Temperatures are taken before each shift, and we require masks for all staff as well.

We ask that if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19 that you find alternative transportation for your pet and alert us that he or she is coming from a COVID-19 positive household.

Thank you so much for your patience and cooperation, and please check our Facebook page for timely updates.

Stay safe and well, everyone!

The Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care Team
