Therapeutic Laser & Dermatology

What is Therapeutic Laser Therapy?

Sunset Animal Hospital uses a state-of-the-art, class IV therapeutic laser as an additional aid against both chronic and acute pain. In a process known as photobiostimulation, this low-level laser stimulates the body to heal itself at a more rapid rate than other treatments, resulting in:

  • Oxygen Production
  • Stimulation of ATP Production
  • An Increase in DNA and RNA Synthesis
  • Stimulation of Cellular Metabolism and Cell Growth
  • Enhanced Collagen Synthesis
  • Accelerated Tissue Repair
  • Analgesia through the Release of Endorphins and Enkephalins
  • Reduced Inflammation
  • Improved Healing of Wounds
  • Increased Blood Flow at Injury Site
  • Improved Bone and Cartilage Health

Laser Therapy May be Used to Treat:

  • Acute and Chronic Ear Infections
  • Gum Disease
  • Skin Wounds Caused by Abscesses, Hot Spots and Lick Granulomas
  • Anal Gland Infections
  • Acute and Chronic Neck and Back Pain (IVDD)

What is Pet Dermatology?

Dermatology is the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders of the skin. In pets, dermatological problems are one of the most common issues that require veterinary attention, the most typical being atopic dermatitis (skin allergies), exoparasites (such as fleas, ticks and mange) and fungal infections that cause itchiness, discomfort and superficial infections. At Sunset, we are experienced in dealing with all dermatological concerns safely and effectively.
