Laser therapy – a new treatment option

By November 15, 2017 Greenbay Vet News

Always keen to be able to offer the latest treatments to our patients we are excited that we can now offer therapeutic laser treatments at our Torquay surgery. Our new ASA laser therapy unit is useful in treating many of the conditions we see every day in our patients.

In humans, laser treatments have been used for many years on sports injuries, arthritic joints, and for back and neck pain.

The following is a list of some of the common conditions we see where our new ASA laser can help:

  • Arthritis in dogs and cats
  • Back pain
  • Stomatitis in cats (painful inflammation of the gums and tissues in the mouth)
  • Infected wounds
  • Surgical wounds
  • Non-healing wounds
