Therapeutic Laser

Therapeutic Laser for Pets in Des Moines IA

Iowa Veterinary Wellness Center offers laser therapy for our patients.

Laser therapy is the use of laser light to stimulate biological processes that lead to faster healing and pain relief. Lasers used for therapy use much less power than surgical lasers, and the beneficial effects come not from heat, but from the stimulation of the body’s natural healing processes. Like plants absorbing sunlight through photosynthesis, the cells in the body absorb laser energy. This stimulates the body to release its own pain relieving chemical compounds.

The veterinarians at Iowa Veterinary Wellness Center utilize laser therapy for a myriad of applications:

  • Post-surgical management
  • Wound healing
  • Lick granulomas
  • Neurologic injury
  • Stomatitis
  • Muscle tears
  • Tendon and ligament tears
  • Trauma and brusing
  • Intervertebral disc disease
  • Arthritis
  • Dental procedures
  • Any condition that causes swelling and pain can be treated with laser
