Our team at Minnesota Veterinary Hospital strives to provide our patients with exceptional care to improve long-term health and overall well-being. As such, we are excited to announce the arrival of our new Summus Medical Laser and the expansion of our laser therapy services. 

In this article, we’ll discuss what you need to know about the laser services we provide and why you should consider them for your pet.

How Does Laser Therapy Work? 

Laser therapy is a type of light therapy that works by emitting high-energy beams into your pet’s body. The light emitted by the laser creates a photochemical reaction in your pet’s cells. This reaction stimulates healing and can significantly reduce pain and inflammation.

Laser therapy has a wide variety of uses and can be used on its own or in combination with other treatments. One of the best parts of laser therapy is that it’s a quick and pain-free process. Laser sessions are performed in our clinic and typically last 15 to 30 minutes. The laser may feel warm against your pet’s skin. However, there is no pain associated with the procedure. Your pet can sit back and relax while our team helps their body heal. 

About Our Laser

At Minnesota Veterinary Hospital, we are excited to welcome a Summus Medical Laser into our practice. This innovative medical device is a Class IV laser that can emit more than 500 watts of power. The high-power light beams allow us to treat larger and deeper parts of your pet’s body.

In addition to its high energy capacity, the Summus laser also offers a wide range of settings that allow us to customize your pet’s care. As a result, this new device will allow us to expand our laser therapy services and create treatment plans to care for your pet’s changing needs.

Like any service we offer in our hospital, your pet’s safety and well-being are always our top priority. Our team has undergone extensive training to ensure your pet receives the best possible care and that the appropriate safety protocols are in place. You can rest assured that your pet is in great hands and will get the top-notch care they deserve. 

Who Can Benefit From Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy has a variety of uses and can benefit many of our patients. While it is commonly used to improve the healing of specific injuries or wounds, laser therapy can also be a great tool for managing chronic conditions. 

For patients dealing with chronic pain, laser therapy has been shown to reduce inflammation and improve comfort. In many cases, patients undergoing laser therapy require less medication to control their pain. As a result, many pet owners see improvements in their pet’s overall well-being.
