Laser Therapy

Does your pet suffer from chronic pain? Has a recent surgery or injury slowed your normally active companion down?

At Pendleton Veterinary Clinic, 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 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 trauma. This triggers a natural response without the need for medication or other invasive measures. As a result, your animal family member can enjoy decreased pain, enhanced mobility and shorter recovery periods.

What is veterinary 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, the doctor applies a low level laser to the area on question, stimulating normal cellular function. This results in faster wound healing and enhanced pain relief. Best of all, because laser therapy requires no medication or surgery, there are no harmful side effects.

What are the benefits of laser therapy?

  • Anti-Inflammation – Decreases swelling from bruising/inflammation
  • Anti-Pain – Blocks pain by decreasing nerve sensitivity
  • Accelerates Tissue Repair, Cell Growth and Nerve Function
  • Improves Circulation
  • Accelerates Healing and Reduces Scarring

What can laser therapy treat?

Laser therapy can be used to address a broad spectrum of conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Disc Disease
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Cranial Cruciate Ligament
  • Dental Problems
  • Chronic Pain and Inflammation
  • Dermatological Conditions
  • Lick Granulomas

How many sessions will my pet need?

Because every pet is different, their response to laser therapy is equally unique. Depending on your loved one’s specific condition, its severity and a number of other determining factors, treatment strategies will vary. For some patients, positive results can be seen after just one session. Others may require a more long-term strategy to achieve the desired outcome. We will provide you with an individual treatment recommendation once we’ve had the opportunity to evaluate your companion’s situation.

Does your best friend suffer from a chronic medical condition, like arthritis? Has a recent injury or surgery negatively impacted your companion’s lifestyle or quality of life? If so, we invite you to reach out today to learn whether the laser therapy services at Pendleton Veterinary Clinic could help.

      Everyone is beyond amazing. Dr. Frazier saw my sweet little dog an hour after calling because my poor baby woke up just crying in agony all night long. Discovered she had a herniated disc and needed to be crated and medicated for a couple weeks. I wasn’t able to be at that appointment due to a test in class, but my mother relayed the message that she was very sweet and gentle.
      Dr. Crabtree sees my other animals, and he is just beyond amazing. His kindness, gentle touch, and concern for you as well as the animals is what makes him an awesome vet. I will never go to anyone else. All the girls, and Kyle have been so wonderful with me and my animals and have always loved on them like they would their own, even when my one cat decided to be a little mouthy with them lol. Best experience with any vet that I have ever had. ❤️

      We have been coming here for years, but yesterday was our first visit with Dr. Crabtree. What could have been an extremely tough day for us and our family's 17 year old cat, the staff was kind, understanding and knowledgeable on explaining the different options we have. Thank you to all for the continuous care you provide to us.
