Laser Therapy


Hudson Veterinary Hospital is proud to offer  Class IV laser therapy to our clients as an effective treatment for many cases of acute and chronic pain, inflammation and wound healing. Laser therapy can be used alone or in conjunction with other treatment modalities, and has the benefit of being a drug-free, non-surgical and safe means of providing lasting pain relief.pet group

Laser therapy uses a beam of light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it—a process called  photobiomodulation. Studies have shown many clinical benefits, including:

  • Reduced Inflammation—Laser therapy dilates the blood vessels and stimulates lymphatic circulation, helping to reduce inflammation.
  • Pain Relief—Laser therapy provides pain-killing, or analgesic effects. It has a direct effect on nerve cells, including suppression of receptors that send pain signals to the brain. It also increases production of endorphins and enkephalins, which are the body’s “natural pain killers”.
  • Accelerated Healing—Laser therapy stimulates activity within cells, resulting in increased oxygen, increased production of the energy molecule ATP (adenosine-triphosphate), and increased enzyme production. These actions help tissue to heal more quickly and reduce the formation of scar tissue. Surgical incisions and other injuries benefit from treatment with laser therapy.

Laser therapy has been used in Europe for many years now, and is currently used in the United States to treat humans for everything from sports injuries to rheumatoid arthritis. We are excited to provide this advanced technology to our canine and feline patients. Ask us if your pet might benefit  from this affordable, non-invasive, drug free technology. Your pet will be glad you did!
