Laser Therapy

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

At Paw Prints Animal 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 furry 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 Paw Prints Animal Hospital could help.

      After spending a lot of money to take my dog into the ICU over a weekend for what was originally diagnosed as pneumonia, I was not able to afford the extra $2k that it would've cost for her to see a specialist to run the diagnostics after she was not recovering with treatment. With a broken heart and with very little hope I took her to Paw Prints Animal Hospital in Easley to see if they could do anything. She was seen by Dr. Cousins and he was very candid in the risk we would be taking by giving her prednisone since we had no idea what was causing her lungs to fill with fluid (because pneumonia did not seem to be the correct diagnosis that the hospital gave). I stayed home with her to monitor how she did just in case she made a turn for the worse. After coming back that same afternoon to administer her antibiotic shot I had let Dr. Cousins know that I had to return to work the next day, but I was afraid to leave her home alone. Without hesitation, he just told me to bring her in the following morning and he would be sure she stayed in a quiet spot until I could come get her in the evening. I can not say enough good things about Paw Prints and their staff, especially Dr Cousins. He took care of Kira as if she were his own pet. I am forever thankful for him and for saving Kira's life. Although, she has many more weeks of treatment, I am a lot more confident that she will continue to recover.

      After having a relationship and trusting-with our pets to Powdersville Animal For 25 years in April my family experienced an unthinkable error on their part and I could no longer trust their care with my family. With our new Puppy I decided to make the change. I love all three of the vets we have seen, great excellent care. We previously saw Dr. Crittendon when he was with Freddie Zink.

      My husband and I took our first puppy (Pumpkin) to Dr. Cousins at Paw Prints Animal Hospital back in 2006 for her first shots & checkup; and now Pumpkin is nearly 12 and still doing great! We love the Paw Prints Animal Hospital veterinarians, over the years we have seen and talked with them all! And even though we have now moved away from Easley to another city, we will still take our pets to Paw Prints 🐾 they are just that good!

      Paw prints were very helpful diagnosing our sick cat. After spending the night discussing what's best for Snowball my son's cat we decided to euthanize. Today was Snowballs last day with us and the staff made us feel at ease explaining the procedure and just being very caring about my son's soon to be loss. I will definitely recommend them.
