Morehead Animal Hospital has used Klaser Therapeutic Laser Therapy for the past 9 years with wonderful success in a variety of cases including post-surgical orthopedic cases, arthritis, muscular pain, etc. Our doctors may suggest it to you for your senior pet aches, to assist in an injury, or as part of a post-surgery recovery.

Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of red light and near-infrared light to stimulate the body's natural ability to heal. Infrared laser light interacts at the cellular level in tissues to increase metabolic activity in the cell. The effects of laser energy include accelerated healing time,‚Äč reduction  of pain, decreased swelling and increased circulation.
