Laser Therapy for Dogs

Laser therapy uses light to favor and accelerate the body’s natural healing processes. The laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules that cause different biological effects including increasing the healing process. We use the Therapeutic laser on all orthopedic procedures, this machine is also used for chronic and acute pain, reoccurring cystitis and wound healing. We have found the therapeutic laser to be very successful in the treatment of spinal injuries and arthritis.

What is therapeutic laser therapy for dogs and what are the benefits?


Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses focused light. Laser light is a very special kind of light. Unlike most light sources, it is tuned to very specific wavelengths. Our Veterinarians and Registered Veterinary Technicians have been trained in order to safely use the Therapeutic Laser and to provide the most effective treatments. Laser Therapy has shown great success and benefits when treating some of the following conditions: osteoarthritis, back pain/injury, hip or elbow dysplasia, post-operative wound healing, trauma or injury (eg. sprains/strains, cruciate ligament tears), reoccurring cystitis.

Are lasers dangerous for dogs and are there any side effects?


Laser Therapy is a very safe form of physiotherapy that can be used on cats and dogs. There are little to no side effects documented with regards to use of the laser.

Dear Clients,

As a result of New Brunswick's plan to enter Level 2 of COVID-19 restrictions, we will proceed with the following protocol, effective immediately, until restrictions have been lifted.

We will be moving back to a curbside “Closed Waiting Room” policy, which means no clients will be permitted in the building, with exceptions. However, we will continue to offer FULL veterinary services.

If you have been contacted by Public Health or are showing symptoms of the virus, we ask that you call us to reschedule your appointment.

Procedure for surgeries and general appointments:

1. Call us at 622-2355 when you arrive in the parking lot. We will proceed in checking you in remotely.

2. When the Dr is ready to see your pet we will call your cell phone or wave at your vehicle and have you bring your pet to the main door. Please wear a mask when approaching the hospital to pass your pet to us.

3. A veterinarian will perform an examination or requested procedure inside the hospital while you wait in your vehicle, or a drop off appointment can be arranged.

4. Once the care of your animal is complete, the veterinarian will call you with their findings and devise a treatment plan.

5. Payment will be taken over the phone or in the parking lot via a portable debit machine. We are trying to limit cash use to a minimum.

6. Food and medications pick up will be curbside and payment can be accepted via e-transfer or credit card over the phone.

We are OPEN with the following hours:

- Monday and Thursday: 8:00am - 7:00pm
- Tuesday and Wednesday: 8:00am - 5:30pm
- Friday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
- Saturday & Sunday: CLOSED

 

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

- Your dedicated team at Waterview Animal Hospital
