Welcome to Glendale Animal Hospital

                                   

Glendale Animal Hospital is proud to continue offering our patients Laser Therapy!
 
Laser therapy is a medical treatment using a low-power laser that does not produce any heat. Both pets and their humans can benefit from laser therapy.  You may have received this treatment yourself from your doctor, physical therapist, or chiropractor.  It has a few different names: soft-laser therapy, therapeutic laser, cold laser, and low-level laser.
 
Laser therapy works by producing two specific wavelengths of light (called photons) that are absorbed into the muscle, joint, or soft tissue that isn’t working properly. The photons speed up the production of healthy cells by driving a molecule called ATP into the cells which help them take in more nutrients and expel more waste.  Healthier cells make healthier tissues.
 
Laser therapy treats a myriad of problems. It can reduce pain and swelling, increase blood circulation, and speed up healing in muscles, tendons, skin, surgical sites, open wounds, and virtually any area of chronic inflammation. It also helps with arthritis. It is not a cure for arthritis, but it can manage the pain and increase range of motion.
 
Once the doctor recommends laser therapy as a form of treatment for a pet we can get started right away. All treatments are done with one of our trained technicians in our office. The laser can be applied directly to the animal’s skin without clipping any fur and with no discomfort. The duration and intensity of the laser is dependent on how deep into the tissue the laser needs to go. The whole process can take anywhere from 5-30 minutes depending on the size of the pet. There are no known side effects to laser therapy, so your pet should rest comfortably during their session.
 
We offer individual treatments for $40 and packages of 6 (buy 5, get one free) for chronic conditions.  These treatments have made a significant improvement in many pets' quality of life.  It is another modality to help alleviate pain, and ending/managing pain is what it is all about!  Please contact us with any questions or to schedule an appointment with one of our doctors.
