At Blue Sky Animal Hospital we are proud to offer routine and post operative therapy for your beloved pet.
Our four legged companions are no different than us; they can pull muscles, injure joints, and have chronic conditions related to injuries.
We employ the use of a therapeutic laser for a variety of conditions ranging from orthopedic to skin to abdominal disorders. A therapy laser is a non-invasive method of treating inflammation, edema, arthritis and infection. The therapy laser is very effective in treating arthritic joins and allowing your pet to return to normal function with minimal medications required. In most patients we can reach a maintenance schedule which requires a treatment once a month.
The use of the therapy laser post-operatively can be beneficial in numerous ways. It can reduce inflammation, reduce edema and increase healing time of both the surgical repair and the incision site. The therapy laser can be used to treat open and infected wounds by killing the bacteria, reducing the inflammation and decreasing the healing time. Oral antibiotics will still be a necessity, but the need for a general anesthetic may be eliminated.
As for rehabilitation, our main focus at Blue Sky Animal Hospital is on helping you with your pet's rehabilitation following extensive orthopedic surgeries.
