Did you know that Dr. Liz Kremzier offers Laser Therapy services at Aspen Animal Hospital? No one wants to see a beloved pet no longer enjoying her favorite activities because she’s experiencing pain. Like people, as pets age, they’re more likely to develop health conditions that can cause pain and discomfort. And, while pain medications can provide some temporary relief, they can also cause a number of side effects. Here’s a look at some alternative ways we can help relieve your pet’s pain.

Therapy lasers use light energy to open the blood vessels and activate the lymphatic drainage system to reduce inflammation and pain and promote healing. Laser therapy promotes tissue healing by releasing endorphins, increasing blood flow to tissues, activating cells needed for tissue repair, and increasing cell division. It can be beneficial for a number of conditions, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Inflammation
  • Sprains and strains
  • Surgical Incisions
  • Fractures
  • Wounds
  • Dental procedures
  • Infections
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Anal gland impaction

The therapeutic or cold laser emits low-level light that penetrates tissues and produces biochemical reactions within the cells. These reactions promote cell regeneration and healing and can decrease inflammation and pain. Laser therapy is used for a variety of conditions including: post-operative pain management and healing; chronic wounds; traumatic injuries; sprains and strains; arthritis; and others.

We look forward to helping your pet feel their best.
