Laser Therapy for Pets

Green Lane Animal Hospital is proud to offer laser therapy to our patients. Therapeutic laser is a “cold” laser that uses laser light wavelengths to promote healing by reducing inflammation and improving blood flow to affected areas. It is a painless and drug free way to help control many common health problems, including arthritis, skin irritations, ear infections and acute injuries. This treatment is widely used by veterinarians to help pets alleviate pain and reduce inflammation. If you would like more information on our therapeutic laser sessions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 905.597.7373.

What are the benefits of laser therapy?

The main benefit of laser therapy is it reduces the pain in your pet’s body. It’s an ideal treatment after surgery that helps accelerate their healing process. Laser therapy serves many purposes, including minimizing scars, soothing wounds, encouraging nerve regeneration and lessening dental pain. Laser therapy sessions are also common for senior pets who are more susceptible to chronic pain and injuries.

What happens during a laser therapy session?

Laser therapy is a quick and non-invasive treatment. It usually lasts 10 to 15 minutes and requires little effort from your pet. While they lay down, we target their pain by using a handheld probe to hover over the afflicted area. Owners are allowed to be in the room. In fact, sometimes our furry clients can be a little nervous so it helps if owners bring comforting items during these sessions. We hope, overtime, this will be a calm activity for your pet.

How often should my pet be treated?

The frequency of their therapy sessions depends on their medical condition and the recommendation of our veterinarians. Every case is different. When we follow up with you and your pet, we can determine if they need more laser support or if they are all set for recovery.

*NEW CLIENTS AND NEW PATIENTS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!*

The time has come to begin our reopening process! We cannot believe it has been over a year since we’ve had you all in the clinic but we are excited and eager to welcome you back. Please read carefully below for our updated policies and protocols.

SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE

  • Effective October 20, 2021, we will be allowing vaccinated clients in the clinic for doctors’ appointments only. Technician appointments and medication/food pick up will continue to be curbside to control the amount of people in the clinic at any given time.
  • We will be allowing one client to accompany their pet in the appointment. Because we will only be allowing one client in at a time, we will not be able to permit children to accompany their parents. There is a strict one-client rule due to the size of our examination rooms.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, please give the clinic a call at 905-597-7373. A Client Care Representative will either let you know the technician is ready to meet you at the door or will retrieve a phone number if we are not quite ready yet.
  • A technician will meet you at the front door. Please have your vaccine passport/identification ready at this time. The technician will also ask you a few COVID-19 Screening questions before guiding you into the clinic.
  • Face masks are still required to enter the hospital and must be worn properly at all times within the clinic and when interacting with our team members outside.
  • Please sanitize your hands upon entry.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
  • FOOD AND PRESCRIPTION ORDERS

    We appreciate advance notice for food and prescription refills. Please call 905.597.7373 upon arrival at the FRONT DOOR and a receptionist will be out with your order right away. For faster service, we suggest ordering pet supplies and food through our online store. Delivery is free with purchases over $100.00. It's easy! Just click ONLINE STORE on our website to sign up.
