Newport Hills Animal Hospital is proud to introduce K-Laser Class IV laser therapy for your pets! Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. No sedation or restraints are required and the experience is usually pleasant and comforting. Occasionally, the patient feels mild soothing warmth or tingling. At the cellular level the infrared light interacts with tissues and metabolic activity increases within the cell, improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane. This initiates the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) that leads to a cascade of beneficial effects, increasing function and health.
During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to damaged areas. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain.
