Laser Surgery

At our medical facility, we prioritize utilizing advanced surgical techniques that prioritize patient comfort and safety. One such technique is laser surgery, which has been proven to minimize bleeding by cauterizing and sealing small blood vessels, reducing pain by sealing nerve endings, limiting swelling, and lowering the risk of infection.

Our highly trained and experienced surgeon, Dr. Zraibi, is dedicated to utilizing the latest technologies in his practice. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience in performing laser surgeries and incorporates this method in as many procedures as possible to provide our patients with the most effective and comfortable surgical experience.

Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy

At Pets R Family, we are dedicated to ensuring the health and well-being of your pet. One top priority is reducing pain and promoting healing for our patients, especially following routine surgeries. To achieve this, we have invested in a therapeutic laser that we use on all our patients.

What is Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is a non-invasive and painless procedure used for post-operative care, treatment of arthritis, skin wounds, and other selected conditions. This therapy works by supplying energy to the body as light is transmitted through the layers of skin. It stimulates and accelerates the healing of damaged cells without causing any adverse effects on healthy cells.

Laser therapy decreases inflammation, eliminates pain, and allows your pet to quickly return to his or her normal activities.

Therapeutic Effects of Laser Therapy

During each painless treatment, the energy from the laser increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area.

This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored, and pain is relieved.

What to Expect During Laser Therapy

Pets usually do not need to be sedated for laser therapy treatments, and the experience is typically pleasant and comforting. Most pets do not need to have their fur clipped.

Improvement is sometimes seen after the first treatment, but most pets require several treatments to achieve maximum benefits. Generally, 4 – 8 treatments produce the best results. The length and frequency of treatments vary with your pet's condition. Your veterinarian will recommend a laser treatment plan specific to your pet's needs.

At Pets R Family, we utilize laser therapy for acute and chronic conditions, with the exception of suspected cancer.

Our goal is to provide your pet with the best possible care and treatment options. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have about laser therapy or any other services we offer.
