The Berwick Animal Clinic is excited to announce that we are now offering Laser Therapy for our patients. While laser therapy for humans has been in common use since the 1980s, it is only recently that its usage to aid in the healing process has crossed over to the veterinary field. This is an exciting treatment option for many different ailments in our pets.
First, let’s get through the technical stuff. Laser therapy uses Photobiomodulation, which are doses of light energy that reach target tissues and result in a decrease in inflammation, a decrease in pain, and an accelerated healing process. Laser treatments are painless to our pets and easy to administer. Initial and successive laser treatments can cause dramatic differences in both managing, and curing, many different diseases of the body. These can include chronic pain, arthritis, dermatologic conditions, trauma, and many other disorders in our dogs and cats.
We have already started using it as part of our post-surgery procedures. Laser therapy not only benefits our patient by targeting and reducing the pain and inflammation that may be associated with a surgical procedure, it also helps you with your pet’s recovery at home by stimulating the healing process.
We would love to discuss laser therapy for your pet. Please contact us with any questions, or ask one of our team about it on your pets next visit. And - be on the lookout for fun pictures we’ll post to social media of us performing laser therapy on our patients!
We offer both preventative care services (much like your visits to the dentist), along with dental x-rays and tooth extractions. Good oral hygiene is the best thing that you can do to ensure a longer life, with less health concerns, for your pet. Call us to schedule a dental exam or service.x
Laboratory services are a vital part of the diagnostic process when it comes to veterinarian care. This is because in many cases it is not possible to be able to give a firm diagnosis without undertaking additional tests to confirm the root of the problem. If you have any questions or concerns your vet will be happy to speak to you.x
This is the most effective way to assist in having your companion returned if they go missing. The microchip (about the size of a grain of rice) is placed under the skin between the shoulder blades. When scanned, it provides information that assists in reuniting you with your furry friend!x
Congratulations on the newest member of your household - we can’t wait to meet them! Call us today to schedule an initial visit – our team will conduct a thorough physical exam, in addition to discussing nutrition, training, and medical care. We’ll be more than happy to answer any other questions you may have, as wellx
Laser therapy is a holistic, non-invasive treatment that reduces inflammation, decreases pain, and accelerates healing for a variety of conditions. It is useful as a post-surgical treatment, for acute conditions such as sprains, strains, and wounds, and chronic conditions such as degenerative joint disease and osteoarthritis.x
