Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy

At Greenway Pet Clinic, we are constantly striving to provide our patients with the best and latest in treatment and care, so we provide laser therapy using a Companion Animal Class IV Therapeutic Laser. Therapeutic Lasers have been proven in clinical studies to help alleviate pain and inflammation, reduce swelling, and stimulate nerve regeneration and cells involved in tissue repair.

Therapeutic Lasers work by emitting a wavelength of light which penetrates deep into the tissues. This stimulates the tissue at the cellular level. Depending on the cell type, this in turn will cause: pain relief, reduction of inflammation, accelerated tissue repair and cell growth, improved circulation, reduced scar tissue, improved nerve function, accelerated wound healing, increased immune response and will stimulate acupuncture and trigger points.

The best news about Laser Therapy is that there are no side effects; it is non-painful and non-invasive. In some cases Laser Therapy may decrease or even eliminate the need for daily medication.

Some areas in which we will be using Laser Therapy are: Osteoarthritis, hip and elbow dysplasia, degenerative joint disease, skin disorders, acute and chronic ear infections, post operative healing, wound healing, snakebites, and after tooth extractions. As you can see, the possibilities are endless.

If you are interested in this treatment modality for your pet and want more information, you are welcome to give us a call at Greenway Pet Clinic, or visit the website for Companion Therapy Laser.

Dear Greenway Pet Clinic Clients:

The global spread of COVID-19 is a concern for everyone. I wanted to let you know that Greenway Pet Clinic has also taken some preventative measures to ensure everyone’s safety, clients and employees alike.

We are continuing to do curbside service only, with the exception of end of life appointments. We appreciate peoples understanding about not entering the clinic. It is for everyone’s safety to keep a distance and not be confined in a small space. We also ask that clients wear masks when interacting with the staff. We wear masks continually inside so we can provide care to your pets and not spread the virus between each other.

I ask that if you are sick, stay home and do not bring your pet in. Please find someone else to bring your pet in if he or she needs to be seen. I want to try to accommodate all our patients but won’t be able to do that if my staff and I get sick.

In addition to daily temperature checks upon starting a shift and wearing a mask, any staff member who starts to feel sick will be sent home and asked to go get tested. If they do have the Coronavirus, they will have to stay home a minimum of ten days or 24 hours past resolution of signs if longer than ten days.

I am not sure when this curbside protocol will end. Unfortunately, this pandemic is far from being under control. I am looking forward to the day when the infection rate is under control and we can again have some sense of normalcy.

Please be safe and take care, Carole Treat DVM
