Mason Animal Hospital has an exciting new addition to our practice to help your pet in ways that were not possible before. We are now using a Companion Therapy Laser!

What is laser therapy?
 Laser therapy is a safe non-invasive laser light that penetrates the affected area(s). This type of therapy is used to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling, and also to speed the healing process. It is used as a compliment to other treatments to help your pet feel better sooner.

 Laser therapy is completely pain free and takes only a few minutes per treatment. The number of treatments can vary depending on how long the problem has been going on or its severity. Each treatment is tailored to your pet's individual needs and can be used with your veterinarian's complete treatment plan.

 Some examples of conditions that a therapy laser can be used for are: post operative pain and healing, trauma, arthritis, hip dysplasia, ear infections, wounds, lick granulomas, tooth extraction pain, sprains, fractures, and may other causes of discomfort in your pet.

 We are very excited to expand our abilities to help our patients with the most up to date technologies that really work!

 For more detailed information and to see if laser therapy is right for your pet, please call us to schedule an appointment to discuss possible treatment plans and how our laser therapy device can greatly improve your pet's quality of life!
