LASER

THERAPY

Did you know all Arizona Veterinary Ambulance mobile vet clinic patients that have had surgical or dental procedure have a laser therapy session included with their procedure?! We want our patients to be pain-free and heal as quickly as possible!

Biological Effects of Companion Animal Laser Therapy

  • Anti-Inflammation. Laser therapy reduces inflammation by dilating local blood vessels, increasing lymphatic drainage, and decreasing pro-inflammatory mediators. As a result, inflammation, redness, bruising, and swelling are reduced.

  • Pain Relief. Laser therapy of diseased and damaged tissue produces a suppression of pain receptors and an increased release of natural pain-relieving endorphins. The result is a decreased patient perception of pain.

  • Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth. Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. Laser light increases the energy available to the cells so that they can take on nutrients and get rid of waste products more quickly.

  • Improved Vascular Activity. Laser light significantly increases the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue. This speeds the healing process, resulting in more rapid wound closure.

  • Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points. Laser therapy stimulates muscle trigger and acupuncture points to provide musculoskeletal pain relief.

  • Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation. Laser therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue.

  • Improved Nerve Function. Slow recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissue may result in numbness and impaired limbs. Laser therapy accelerates nerve cell regeneration.

  • Immunoregulation. Therapy laser photons have an effect on the immune system’s status through stimulation of antibodies and white blood cells.

  • Faster Wound Healing. Laser light stimulates fibroblast development. Fibroblasts produce collagen, which is the essential protein required to replace old tissue or to repair tissue injuries.
