At Main West Animal Hospital we pride ourselves at remaining on top of all the latest in technological and medical advancements. One such cutting edge procedure is veterinary laser therapy. Our veterinary technicians are skilled in providing this as a valuable treatment option for our patients.
Laser therapy is used to treat a variety of ailments including arthritis, hip dysphasia, skin conditions, otitis (ear infections and inflammation), wound healing, gingivitis, cystitis and degenerative joint disease. It’s performed with a class IV laser which, when applied over the course of several applications, penetrates the tissue of the affected area to ultimately increase circulation, speed healing and provide pain relief.
Main West Animal Hospital uses The Companion Therapy Laser System, which is the most powerful Class IV laser currently used in the veterinary industry. This state of the art technology was specifically designed for veterinary medicine and allows your pet to heal faster
following surgery or traumatic injuries. In addition, laser therapy has been proven to
- Chronic and Acute Disorders

The process of laser therapy is particularly attractive because it is drug-free, safe and painless and offers significant results in most cases. We are proud to offer this treatment option and feel that it complements the high standard of care we already provide, offering an additional means to keep our patients healthy and happy.
