At Victoria Park Animal Hospital we strive to stay on top of the latest advancements in veterinary medicine so that we can continue to offer our clients the most effective treatment options for their cherished pets. As part of this commitment, we are proud to offer veterinary laser therapy as an additional treatment option to manage pain and speed healing following surgery or injury. It’s just one of the many ways we are helping to improve the lives of animals and the people who love them.

What is Laser Therapy?

The therapeutic laser is a small, handheld device that emits a high intensity beam of light. The light painlessly targets problem areas, both externally and internally, to reduce pain, improve mobility and speed healing following injury or surgery. Laser therapy is becoming a preferred treatment modality for many pet owners because it is painless, drug-free and non-invasive, yet results can often be seen after just one session.

What can laser therapy be used to treat?

Laser therapy technology is ideal for treating animals that suffer from a number of medical conditions, such as:

  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Back Injuries
  • Trauma or Surgical Wounds
  • Strains or Sprains
  • Ligament Damage
  • Infections
  • Inflammation
  • Dental Problems
  • Much More…

How many laser treatments will my pet need?

Just as every animal is unique, the way they respond to laser treatments will vary. Some animals require just one or two sessions, while others take longer to achieve the desired results. The doctor will be able to provide you with a customized treatment protocol once your pet has been properly evaluated. We invite you to start a conversation today to find out if this innovative treatment option would benefit your four-legged friend.
