Moon Mobile Veterinary Service is proud to offer veterinary laser treatment for our patients. Laser is the latest in alternative options to drugs, and surgery along with Acupuncture and herbs. We strive to provide the best pet care for our patients with as many safe and tested treatments as possible to give our patients the best quality healthcare we can. Now that we have added Laser treatment along with acupuncture, and herbal medications we are able to offer other solutions to conditions that might otherwise require expensive surgery, daily medications, or other traditional treatments. Laser is just one of the many options that we offer and may not be right for all conditions or patients, only a licensed and certified Veterinarian can help decide what treatment is right for your pet. Here at Moon Mobile Veterinary Service we always put the patient first and provide "The Kind of Care Your Pets Deserve".
Class IV K-Lasers deliver specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a therapeutic effect within the body. These include increased circulation, decreased swelling, reduction of pain and enhanced tissue repair. Laser therapy has been used in Europe since 1970s and was cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration in 2002.
The painless application of laser energy promotes increased circulation by drawing oxygen and nutrients to the affected area. This creates an optimal healing environment reducing inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, pain is relieved and function is restored.
During treatment, infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level. Increased metabolic activity within the cell stimulates the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane initiating increased production of cellular energy (ATP). This leads to a cascade of beneficial events promoting the acceleration of the healing process and reduced pain.
There is no patient sedation or restraint required and the experience is usually pleasant and comforting to them. Best of all we do them in the comfort of your home. For more information or questions please watch the video below, visit our Q&A section, or visit this website.
