Not all pet pain issues should be solved by common prescription drugs. There is a strong case to be made for alternative therapies. And when those therapies come in the shape of a revolutionary medical Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT) Laser device like Dog Med Laser, designed especially for at-home use for cats and dogs (thereby negating stressful vet visits at the same time as helping heal your pet)? That’s what we call true animal wellness. But what is Photobiomodulation exactly? And why might your pet – dog or cat – benefit from the use of this low-level laser therapy?
If you’ve heard anything about laser therapy for pets, it’s likely been in relation to pain management for aging and arthritic dogs. But these are not the only reasons a pet might benefit from the use of this revolutionary pet care treatment. There are, in fact, numerous other ailments and conditions where low level laser therapy – a non-invasive, 100% safe treatment – can make a significant difference in your pet’s life.
1. Post-Surgery Recovery
Living through your pet’s surgery – whatever its cause – is indubitably stressful. And then you get your pet home, and that stress multiplies exponentially! Nobody likes seeing their pet in pain, and post-operative recovery in pets can be challenging in this regard, with inflammation and infection being additional primary concerns. PBMT laser is a game-changer in such situations. Dog Med Laser uses this low-level light photon technology to enhance tissue repair, reduce inflammation and edema, manage pain, and accelerate the healing process.
2. Wound Healing
From minor skin tears to more complex cases involving flap loss, dogs are prone to injuries. Low level laser therapy has been proven to boost wound healing by increasing blood circulation and promoting the formation of new, healthy tissue. This can be especially beneficial for active dogs who might be more prone to accidents.
3. Orthopedic Surgeries
Orthopedic surgeries like Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO) for cruciate ligament issues or hip dysplasia surgery (FHO) are not exclusive to aging dogs. Younger dogs with such conditions often require surgical intervention – and recovery therapy can be even more challenging given their youthful energy levels! PBMT can assist in post-surgery pain management and significantly speed up recovery – which is good for pet and parent. (There’s nothing quite like a cooped-up pooch to set the entire household on edge.)
4. Dental Procedures
Just like humans, dogs need dental care. Dental extractions, surgeries, treatments for dental issues like periodontal disease, and even just dental cleaning can leave your pet in discomfort. PBMT can provide relief from any dental surgery pain, speed up recovery, and improve overall oral health.
5. Paw Injuries
Paws are pawticularly susceptible to various injuries, ranging from cuts and scrapes to more complex issues. Dog Med Laser provides you with a quick, easy, and effective tool to help alleviate pain and inflammation and get your pet back on their paws in no time.
6. Joint Disorders
Old dogs aren’t the only ones to suffer from joint and hip issues. Big dogs, in particular, are prone to conditions like hip dysplasia and orthopedic disorders. If your dog suffers from hip or joint pain, low level laser light can deliver pain relief, improve mobility, and offer ongoing comfort.
7. Agility Athletes
For highly active dogs involved in sports and agility competitions, staying in top physical condition is obviously paramount. Injuries, muscle strains, or even simple wear and tear from intense physical activities can take a toll. Low level laser is an indispensable tool for keeping your four-legged superhero in optimal shape:
- It can help heal the stresses of competition on those furry bodies.
- Plus, by increasing blood flow and local oxygen delivery, relieving muscle stiffness, and improving mobility, it not only helps them heal faster, but enhances training and competition performances.
Whether your dog is young or old, active or recovering, they can benefit from this non-invasive, drug-free treatment for that which ails them. It’s time to embrace the future of pet care with Dog Med Laser and explore what this revolutionary treatment can do for your dog.
