Pet Laser Therapy
If your pet experiences a soft tissue injury, chronic pain, or a wound that needs some more help healing, our doctors may add Laser Therapy to your pet’s treatment plan. Therapeutic laser is the application of light energy to areas of the body to stimulate and accelerate healing. Therapeutic laser reduces pain by decreasing inflammation, as well as by decreasing tissue chemicals that stimulate pain and by affecting nerve conduction. The therapeutic laser also enhances healing by increasing microcirculation (blood flow through the body’s smaller blood vessels), stimulating cellular activity, and increasing growth factors.
Radiology (x-rays) is routinely used to provide valuable information about a pet’s bones, gastrointestinal tract (stomach, intestines, colon), respiratory tract (lungs), heart, and genitourinary system (bladder, prostate). It can be used alone or in conjunction with other diagnostic tools to provide a list of possible causes for a pet’s condition, identify the exact cause of a problem or rule out possible problems.
Ultrasonography is a type of diagnostic technique that uses ultrasound waves to produce an imaging study. This means that when we perform ultrasonography, we can see internal images of the patient’s body. Unlike some other imaging studies, like x-rays, ultrasonography does not use radiation. Instead, ultrasonography uses high-frequency sound (ultrasound) waves to create a picture of what is inside your pet’s body. Ultrasonography is a completely non-invasive, painless way to diagnose and evaluate many common diseases.

Electrocardiogram, or EKG, is a non-invasive procedure that allows a veterinarian to check how your pet’s heart is performing. It measures the rate and regularity of the pet’s heartbeats and also measures the size and position of the heart chambers. In addition to heart measurements, an EKG will reveal signs of any existing damage to the cat or dog’s heart. As with humans, early detection of heart problems in your pet increases the opportunities for successful treatment of the pet’s heart condition.
It is important to remember that chest pain is frequently the first sign of a heart attack and usually a reason to perform an EKG. However, unlike their owners, dogs and cats cannot communicate the fact that they are experiencing chest pain, and this important symptom often goes unnoticed. Periodic EKG tests for dogs and cats during their senior years are vital to protect your pet’s health and well-being during this stage of life.
