Laser Therapy
Drug Free. Surgery Free. Pain Relief for Your Pet.

We are proud to offer laser therapy to aid in the treatment of wounds, chronic pain, and inflammation.

What is Laser Therapy?
A surgery-free, drug-free, noninvasive treatment to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and speed healing.

Class IV laser therapy uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it. Laser energy produces a response in the cells called "photo-bio-modulation", which leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation, and increased healing speed.

How it Works:

The laser is delivered through a noninvasive handpiece to treat the affected area. Your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth. No sedation or shaving is required and most treatments take a matter of minutes. Treatments can be done as a single treatment or in a series of treatments depending on the condition.

Ponemah Veterinary Hospital uses The Companion Therapy Laser System, which is the most powerful Class IV laser currently available for veterinary use.

What are the Costs?

Treatment protocols are unique to each patient and condition. Therefore, treatments will vary in time, complexity, and cost. Some conditions are managed with a single treatment while others may require a longer series of treatments over time. We have treatment packages which help to make longer term protocols cost effective. Ask us for an estimate for laser therapy for your pet.

How Soon Will I See Results?

Results vary depending on the condition treated. In some cases improvement can be seen within 24 hours. In more chronic cases, results may take longer. Some animals may act relaxed after therapy. Some pets with chronic arthritis may have increased activity at first which might make them seem a bit sore for a day or two.Ponemah Veterinary Hospital, Amherst, NH - Laser Therapy
