Class (III) Laser Therapy

Has your Pet had recent surgery?  Does your pet suffer from chronic pain?

At Firth Veterinary Hospital, we believe that when it comes to caring for your cherished Companion, you should have as many choices as possible. That’s why we’re pleased to offer class III cold laser therapy as part of our comprehensive suite of services. The laser uses painless waves of light to treat areas of the body that are experiencing pain or have suffered any type of trauma. This triggers a natural response without the need for medication or other invasive measures. As a result, your loved one can enjoy decreased pain, enhanced mobility and shorter recovery periods.  This treatment is standardly used post surgery to help promote a speedy recovery and minimize pain and inflammation instantly.


What is veterinary Class III Cold Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive form of treatment which stimulates the body’s natural healing and pain control response. It can be used as a standalone therapy or as a complement to other treatment methods. Using a small, handheld device, a low level laser is applied to the area of treatment, stimulating normal cellular function. This results in faster surgical or wound healing and enhanced pain relief caused by other ailments. Best of all, because laser therapy requires no medication or surgery, there are no harmful side effects.
