Many pets with chronic conditions can benefit from regular laser therapy. What is laser therapy? It is the use of light to stimulate mechanisms in the body's cells that result in faster healing of surgical incisions and injuries and reducing inflammation involved in conditions like arthritis. Want the nitty gritty of how this happens? Please visit https://www.companionanimalhealth.com/page/photobiomodulation for more information.
Laser therapy takes between 10-20 minutes to complete and produces a warm sensation over the affected area. Your pet can sit or lay during the procedure, and he/she will not experience any changes to his/her skin or hair. Some pets experience improvement with their conditions right away and others take more time.
During the month of May, Oakcrest Pet Hospital is having a special on laser packages. When you buy 6 sessions, you get the 7th session free PLUS you receive 10% off the 6 sessions! Call us today for more details!
A healthy pet starts with a Wellness Plan!
A Wellness Plan can help your pet live a longer, healthier life through affordable preventative care. Low monthly payments cover your pet’s essential exams, vaccinations, parasite testing, and more. The plans are tailored to the health needs of the individual pets so items like dental cleanings and diabetes testing can be added as needed. We invite you to learn more about our plans by going to Wellness Plans on our website.
During the month of June, if you enroll your pet in one of our Wellness Plans, your pet will be entered into a drawing to win 12 months of heartworm prevention for FREE! This includes Sentinel tablets and Proheart 12 products.
Also during the month of June, we are taking 10% off of medications used to ease the stress caused by spring storms and Fourth of July fireworks. Anxiety is a lot like pain and can increase if not properly addressed at the beginning. Please talk to your veterinarian if your pet is showing signs of anxiety like pacing, panting, whimpering, and hiding during storms or fireworks. He/She can discuss ways to manage the condition such as desensitization techniques, thunder shirts, and using medication.
