INDIANAPOLIS, July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Animal Dermatology Clinic Indianapolis now offers cold laser therapy as a new, non-invasive treatment option and adjunctive therapy for several dermatologic conditions.
"I am excited and pleased to have cold laser therapy available for patients that visit Animal Dermatology Clinic Indianapolis. Both pet owners and the patient will be pleased that there is no pain associated with this therapy, as well as no lingering odors or side effects. It is a wonderful supplement to the medical protocol at our Animal Dermatology Clinic Indianapolis location," says Dr. Lori Thompson, Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Dermatology and owner of Animal Dermatology Clinic Indianapolis, Inc.
Therapy lasers, often known as "low level lasers" or "cold lasers" offer a new, non-invasive treatment option for some dermatologic conditions. For dermatological conditions, the most common diseases that benefit from the use of the therapeutic laser are lick granulomas (acral pruritic nodules), burns, ear infections and inflammation (otitis), "hot spots" (pyotraumatic dermatitis), anal gland rupture, perianal fistulae, and ulcers. Therapy lasers are used for pain management and to hasten the healing of wounds. The laser stimulates an increase in various cellular activities that promote a decrease in inflammation and also stimulate receptors that release pain-relieving substances.
There are no known side effects with low powered lasers. The short treatment times (often less than 15 minutes) are well tolerated by pets. Some conditions require only 1-2 sessions, whereas chronic conditions can benefit from weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly therapy.
