Laser Therapy

The (non)cutting-edge of veterinary science

Laser therapy is an innovative technology used to treat acute and chronic injuries. The non-invasive treatment stimulates cell regeneration by increasing blood flow to the targeted area. At Animal Hospital of Sandy Springs, we utilize a K-laser, a class-IV laser that uses specific wavelengths of light to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal.

The K-laser provides numerous health benefits to pets:

  • Improves healing time
  • Reduces pain
  • Increases circulation
  • Decreases swelling

We treat many conditions with K-laser therapy at Animal Hospital of Sandy Springs. The most common include:

  • Arthritis
  • Orthopedic injury
  • Infected and chronic wounds
  • Snake bites
  • Anal gland abscesses
  • Post-surgical incisions
  • Dermatitis
  • Otitis (middle ear infection)
  • Intervertebral disk disease
  • Stomatitis (inflammation of the mouth and lips)

We can treat many other conditions, ailments and illnesses with K-laser therapy as well. Talk to your veterinarian about your pet’s options.

Typically, we combine laser therapy treatments with other types of veterinary medicine, including pharmaceutical regimens and alternative therapies.
