MLS Laser Therapy is one of the most effective laser treatment options for pets suffering from various health issues. It has become a preferred option, especially for pain issues. At Trumbull Animal Hospital, we provide quality laser services to improve your pet's quality of life. When you first visit our office, our veterinarian will evaluate your pet’s condition to determine how your pet will benefit from MLS laser therapy.
What is MLS Laser Therapy for Pets?
MLS Laser Therapy is a veterinary therapy that uses low-level lasers to reduce pain, inflammation, and provide other benefits. The beauty of this kind of therapy is that it does not involve any side effects of downtime. The laser increases cellular activity to promote healing throughout the body of your pet.
How Does MLS Laser Therapy Work?
The laser light stimulates cells in your pet's body. The light is absorbed, which boosts the production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) and promotes healing. This means that any areas with damaged cells receive more efficient blood flow, allowing for quicker recovery times and less pain. This process is known as photobiomodulation.
What Can MLS Laser Therapy Do for My Pet?
The following are just some of the many ailments that may respond well to MLS Laser Therapy:
- Acute injuries
- Digestive problems
- Ear infections
- Skin conditions including hot spots
- Dental pain
- Tendon or ligament injuries
- Post-surgery pain
- Post-surgical tissue repair
Is MLS Laser Therapy Safe?
Once properly trained in the use of this therapy, a veterinarian can administer it to your pet. There are no known side effects, and pets love having the treatment done because they feel soothing warmth from the laser's light. The beam does not pass through living tissue, only impacting the cells beneath the surface. Pets do not have to be sedated or anesthetized when receiving MLS Laser Therapy. Most dogs and cats will sit quietly during their session without complaint.
Is MLS Laser Therapy Right for My Pet?
With no reported side effects or downtime, many veterinary hospitals and clinics now offer laser therapy as an alternative option to surgery and medication. Ask our veterinarian if this treatment is right for your pet.
