When a physical condition or injury affects your pet’s mobility or quality of life, there is one goal: A rapid return to every-day activities. Mount Pleasant Animal Hospital is proud to be on the medical technological forefront by offering MLS Laser Therapy. We have invested in the very best technology as a key component of our continuing quest to offer you the finest in health care for your pet.
Laser therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free alternative for managing pain. Our laser therapy has been cleared by the FDA for use in both the veterinary and medical fields. It is proven safe and effective for treating many debilitating pain conditions, with no known side-effects.
MPAH pet laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light that have a strong anti-edema, anti-inflammatory effect on exposed tissues. Painful conditions accompanied by swelling or inflammation benefit from this technology. Photons of laser energy penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. As a result of exposure to this therapy, the cells of muscles, tendons and ligaments experience more rapid repair. Pain subsides very quickly as inflammation is reduced. In simple terms, laser energy kick-starts the healing process, thereby speeding recovery.
