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.

      Watching our daughters dog while she is on vacation. Her dog got sick, and since he has a history of pancreatitis we felt he needed seen ASAP. Her regular vet was closed so we got in to see Dr Crabtree. We had not been there before. Dr Crabtree was so thorough and compassionate. He had to deliver bad news to us, and to our daughter on the phone. He offered help in making the dog comfortable until our daughter can get home. You can tell he truly cares for his patients and will go the extra mile to help. He is exceptional.

      If you are ever in need of a veterinarian, look no further than Pendleton Veterinary Clinic. When our Lab-Pit mix, Reba, fell ill a couple weeks ago, we decided to give them a try, as we had heard nothing but positive feedback about their office, and we had been terribly frustrated with several other offices we had previously visited. We will never go anywhere else. Kyle & Dr. Conner were absolutely phenomenal. They actually listened to everything we had to say about our dogs, took time to answer all our questions, were very straight forward and honest with all the information they gave us, and not only loved on our dogs, but didn't get irritated when our dogs wanted to love on them. We never once felt like we were being rushed out so they could get to the next appointment. The fact that they were very affordable was just a side bonus to the care and attention we received. We honestly left feeling like they cared about our pets as much as we did. Over the next several days, we received follow-up calls from the office asking if we had any questions or concerns, Kyle checking to see how the medication was working for Reba (because we told them she tends to have side effects), and Dr. Conner giving us the lab results and asking us to call back in and let them know how Reba was doing. We were absolutely blown away. We've never experienced anything like this when making a visit to the vet's office. We highly recommend Pendleton Veterinary Clinic to anyone in the area who loves their fur-babies!

      I abruptly stopped in today for an emergency visit for my kitten. We had never been there, and I did not have an appointment or give them any notice. I was extremely upset and they were so incredibly helpful and nice. They took my kitten back immediately and observed him for over an hour. Everyone was so helpful and nice, it meant so much to me that they would look at him since my regular vet was over 30 minutes away. I definitely recommend them and will be returning! Thank you again for all your help and for dealing with my hysterics.

      Thank you Dr. Crabtree and staff for saving my pup's life. I called 20-30 clinics for an emergency surgery, and PVC was the fastest and most affordable. We will continue to bring our pups here, even though we live in a different county. We are grateful for the exceptional care.

      Chloe did an amazing job with grooming my dog. He is old, cranky, and thus has been kicked out of numerous grooming facilities. She handled him with kindness and respect! She had no issues and he looks adorable. Not only is he so cute, but he smells fantastic! I would HIGHLY recommend PVC to my friends & family!
