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.

      First, I want to say that I've never had a Facebook account. I just now created one for the sole purpose of commenting on this site. I took my sick cat, Quo, to Paw Prints and was devastated to find out she had an inoperable stomach tumor and there was no alternative but to put her down. It caught me completely by surprise; I was such an emotional wreck I didn't even stay to watch the procedure.
      That was a little over a week ago. Today I received a card from them in the mail expressing their condolences. That they would do such a thing to personally send me a card touched me. It shows that they truly care about pets, as well as the people who have them. I can't recommend them enough. Hell, I opened up a Facebook account just to do that. LOL
      Thank you very much for the card, Paw Prints. I'd vote 6 stars for you if I could.

      The vets have always been helpful, professional, and kind... however, the staff is very hit or miss. Following a wonderfully handled bad experience where they diagnosed our dog and very humanely ended her suffering we have been in contact all week about boarding our other dog next week. Paw Prints requires a bordetella vaccine be within the last 6 months to be valid. We were told that because our dog has been seen here before that we wouldn’t need an appointment or dr visit just to receive a vaccine. Well, we brought the dog and made a visit... only to find out that we had been misinformed.

      No attempt to make right what they screwed up... it’s better to have me leave upset and go where I should have gone for vaccines anyway - the Greenville Humane Society. They are cheaper, and things like this don’t happen.

      So, I highly recommend the vets at paw prints... just be prepared to get questions concerning their processes and services answered incorrectly and them not do anything to correct their mistakes.

      I Love Paw Prints! The staff is awesome, and give me complete security in their concern and care of my little Chipin pup "Frisky". The follow-up calls to check in on him and ask how he is doing and addressing any of my concerns with how everything is affecting my 2.2 lb. Pup makes such a statement as to where their hearts lie. So glad I brought my baby to them. They are the best! ���

      When my Yorkie was extremely ill and needed emergency surgery a few months ago, Paw Prints came to the rescue and saved her life. Eternally grateful for the Drs and staff who cared and watched over my baby like one of their own. Because of them I still have her to have and love for many more years!!! �. Thank you Paw Prints for everything that you do.

      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.
