Laser Therapy

Does your pet suffer from chronic pain? Has a recent surgery or injury slowed your normally active companion down?

At Vineyard Veterinary Hospital, we believe that when it comes to caring for your cherished companion, you should have as many choices as possible. That’s why we’re pleased to offer laser therapy as part of our comprehensive suite of services. The laser uses painless waves of light to treat areas of the body that are experiencing pain or have suffered trauma. This triggers a natural response without the need for medication or other invasive measures. As a result, your loved one can enjoy decreased pain, enhanced mobility and shorter recovery periods.

What is veterinary laser therapy?

Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive form of treatment which stimulates the body’s natural healing and pain control response. It can be used as a standalone therapy or as a complement to other treatment methods. Using a small, handheld device, the doctor applies a low level laser to the area on question, stimulating normal cellular function. This results in faster wound healing and enhanced pain relief. Best of all, because laser therapy requires no medication or surgery, there are no harmful side effects.

What are the benefits of laser therapy?

  • Anti-Inflammation – Decreases swelling from bruising/inflammation
  • Anti-Pain – Blocks pain by decreasing nerve sensitivity
  • Accelerates Tissue Repair, Cell Growth and Nerve Function
  • Improves Circulation
  • Accelerates Healing and Reduces Scarring

What can laser therapy treat?

Laser therapy can be used to address a broad spectrum of conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Disc Disease
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Cranial Cruciate Ligament
  • Dental Problems
  • Chronic Pain and Inflammation
  • Dermatological Conditions
  • Lick Granulomas

How many sessions will my pet need?

Because every pet is different, their response to laser therapy is equally unique. Depending on your loved one’s specific condition, its severity and a number of other determining factors, treatment strategies will vary. For some patients, positive results can be seen after just one session. Others may require a more long-term strategy to achieve the desired outcome. We will provide you with an individual treatment recommendation once we’ve had the opportunity to evaluate your companion’s situation.

Does your animal family member suffer from a chronic medical condition, like arthritis? Has a recent injury or surgery negatively impacted your companion’s lifestyle or quality of life? If so, we invite you to reach out today to learn whether the laser therapy services at Vineyard Veterinary Hospital could help.

      I had to take my senior dog in for an emergency, the staff was outstanding as I really didn't think my baby was coming home. They were so understanding and kind!! This is the only place I would take my fur baby to. Thank you for your excellent service and compassion.

      Dr Totman and his staff saved my baby boy. His organs had begun to shut down at 8 months old and for over a month I thought I would lose him. If it wasn't for this office, he would not be here to bring me joy every single day. The staff here is professional, beyond caring & go above and beyond the extra mile. They take care of your furbaby as if it were their own. I received regular updates when he needed to stay at their office and when I got him home, they called every other day to check up on him. I felt completely confident they were taking the best care of my baby.
      I am a fiercely loyal customer once I find an office I can trust and had been taking my furbabies to the same vet my entire life, but I can't say I'd go back to them. Dr Totman and his staff have gained a customer for life. If you take your furbaby anywhere, take them to Dr Totman.

      We lost our Koufax today, after losing Sandi in March. They both lived 16 wonderful years and were a part of our family almost from the time Ellen and I got married.
      The house seems empty and it will be a long while before the sadness wanes, but their memories will always bring smiles to us.

      Sandi and Koufax were both taken care of until their last day by the amazingly compassionate staff at Vineyard Veterinary Hospital. Even at their passing, Ellen and I and our dogs felt that we could not have been in better hands.
      If in need of someone to care for your dog or cat, I highly recommend Dr. Totman, Joan, Verenice, Ashley and the rest of the staff at Vineyard.
