Helping Pets Heal

Cats and dogs can experience a wide range of debilitating and painful conditions that require intervention to ensure a comfortable life. This can include a procedure to repair a torn ligament, physical therapy following surgery or laser therapy to address a problem noninvasively.

Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy is used to stimulate your own pet’s cells to promote healing in the case of acute or chronic injury and disease. We often use this method to treat conditions that cause inflammation, including inflamed ears and arthritic joints. Dr. Sette has experienced the difference laser therapy can make with his own shoulder injury as well as his dog Havoc’s bi-lateral elbow dysplasia. There are remarkable benefits to laser therapy, and it often allows patients to delay or avoid surgery. We offer laser therapy packages to help your pet experience the most benefit.

Physical Therapy

Our objective with physical therapy is to restore and maintain your pet’s quality of life. Physical therapy can be effectively used to help rehabilitate pets recovering from an orthopedic or a neurological problem or surgery. We can often reduce pain and improve mobility for pets with chronic conditions, too. Using a therapeutic ultrasound, we can help speed up wound healing, improve range of motion and decrease pain and muscle spasms in muscle and tendon sprains and strains. Electrical stimulation is used for muscle strengthening and re-education as well as pain relief. Manual therapies, such as stretching and massage, range of motion exercises and sensory motor exercises, are used to help manage pain, improve circulation, decrease inflammation, maintain strength and flexibility, re-educate muscles and relax the affected area. All of these therapies are designed to help pets become more mobile so muscle mass improves and appropriate weight can be maintained for better physical activity.
