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 – Effective May 7th, 2020

Dear Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care Family,

With the new order issued by Governor Hogan, we are now able to resume full services again, including wellness visits and elective procedures such as spays, neuters, and dental cleanings. In order to keep our valued clients and caring team healthy and do our part in social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we will continue to follow our adjusted protocols for the hospital.

We will continue to only allow pets into the hospital. Clients will have the opportunity to Zoom video conference into their pet’s exam, or the doctor will call you on the phone after the doctor has completed the examination if you do not want to use Zoom. You may view the complete protocol here.

We already have rigorous cleaning protocols in place for the hospital, and we have increased the frequency of these cleanings as well. All team members wear masks and gloves, and also wash their hands following CDC recommendations with soap and water before and after each exam. Anyone feeling ill for any reason stays home, and all team member temperatures are taken prior to each shift. The additional measures taken are for the safety of our clientele and our team so that we can continue to serve the needs of our patients and our community that we love. We highly recommend for clients to wear masks and ask if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms to find your pet alternative transportation and alert staff that your pet is coming from a COVID-19 positive household. Thank you for your understanding.

Stay safe everyone!

Best,
The Team and Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care
