Surgery & Dental Cleaning Recovery
At Cypress Fairhaven Animal Hospital, we always use our laser to treat surgical incisions on our patients when they just get out of surgery. This helps to reduce pain and swelling and hastens healing of the incision.
We also treat dental cleaning patients with our laser. When we clean your pet’s teeth, we need to go under the gum line to remove build up and treat any existing infections. This, along with the removal of a damaged/infected tooth, will cause some pain and swelling. To minimize this, we provide laser therapy immediately following the cleaning procedure so your pet can wake up more comfortably and have an easier recovery at home.
Is Laser Therapy Uncomfortable for Pets?
Our laser will not cause your pet any discomfort whatsoever. The laser light generated by our equipment is warm and soothing; it will not harm or burn your pet’s skin. If your pet is comfortable enough during therapy, they might even fall asleep!
Does Laser Therapy have Any Side Effects?
There are no known side effects from laser treatment in most cases, though some conditions may not be suitable for this therapy. We also recommend against using laser therapy on pets that may have, or have been diagnosed with, cancer. Laser therapy can potentially exacerbate the growth and spread of cancer cells.
