The newest technology providing solutions to improve the quality of life for your companion
When choosing a treatment option for your pet, there is now an alternative to pharmaceuticals. The Companion Therapy Laser SystemTM can provide immediate results without any dangerous side effects.
Westover Animal Hospital is offering the latest technology in health care for your pet. This FDA cleared, deep penetrating light allows relief of pain through the release of endorphins and stimulates the injured cells to heal at a faster rate.
These Are Some of the Disorders that Respond to Laser Therapy
What will the application of laser therapy do for my pet?
Laser therapy applied with the Companion therapy laser system provides a sterile, pain-free, surgery- free, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions, numerous dermatological problems, and pain. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your companion will benefit from this revolutionary new approach to Veterinary medicine.
Laser therapy is the only course of treatment that actually stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body and absorbed by the injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism. This results in increased circulation from the body, an anti-inflammatory reaction, relief from pain and an acceleration of the healing process.
What to expect during a Companion Laser Therapy treatment session for your companion?
Simply put, it provides relief.
As the laser is administered, your pet will relax and enjoy, much like you, experiencing a good massage. The almost immediate relief of pain will allow your pet to be comfortable and any anxiety that your pet initially experienced will dissipate. Angry feline companions will start to purr and most of our canine companions will actually fall asleep during their therapy session.
Frequently, after therapy, the quote is heard: "Our young animal is back" or "she acts like a puppy again." - Pain relief is provided in just a few minutes of therapy and that alone improves the quality of life for your best friend.
