Laser Therapy

At Balance Veterinary Care we are currently using a super pulsed laser for treatment of cats and dogs. Laser treatment now has an increasing amount of research to support its effectiveness in musculoskeletal conditions.

Laser treatment can alter the level of pain messengers by having an effect of the mitochodria of the cells.

Laser has been shown to

- Reduce pain

- Reduce inflammation

- Increase micro circulation to help in wound healing

Daily treatment is now affordable with our Laser hire program program. Drop us a line to arrange Laser hire.
