Laser Therapy – Petplex Animal Hospital has recently began using a state of the art human grade therapy laser. We have had success using this next generation of therapy equipment with arthritis and other painful orthopedic problems. This laser seems to especially helpful with advanced arthritic cases, pets which cannot be treated with traditional medications, and for animals which seem to have non specific pain issues. The therapy laser is also very effective at treating tissue edema and inflammation. Laser therapy is utilized to enhance healing of surgical sites, traumatic skin injuries, and even deep tissue.
