"In 2001 a very special little kitten came to stay at our house named Emma. She weighed in at a whopping 2 ½ pounds. When she was about 9 months old she began vomiting and wouldn’t eat. The doctors at Piney Creek Square Veterinary Clinic took x-rays, but nothing showed up on them. She was losing weight, and she was thin by nature anyway, so everyone was worried about her. Dr. Behrns came to the rescue and performed emergency surgery on our little girl. She found an almond trying to pass into Emma’s stomach. Of course, it would not have shown up on an x-ray. Thank you, Dr. Behrns, for saving Emma’s life."
At Piney Creek Square Integrative Veterinary Medicine, we use a Class IV therapeutic laser to provide a drug-free solution for all kinds of pain, inflammation, & skin conditions.
The conditions laser therapy can treat are numerous! It works by decreasing swelling, & encourages blood & lymph flow clearing harmful toxins from the affected area. This high-tech medicine was originally designed and used to treat people over 30 years ago, and now pets are benefitting too. The scientific term for laser therapy’s effect on tissue is photo-bio-modulation. The body’s cellular chemistry is affected by deep penetrating photons, altering cellular function in a beneficial way. It repairs cells, decreases inflammation, remodels scar tissue and reduces pain by accelerating the body’s natural healing process.
Laser therapy is effective in treating chronic conditions, acute conditions, and post- surgical pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can also be used to stimulate acupuncture points without the use of needles.
